I'm really getting tired of Republicans crying about the "fiscal house" needing to get in order. Hearing a former Bush 43 staffing pulling that meaningless term on hardball tonight really burned me up. I guess no one gave the Democrats the memo that stated, Republicans spend for eight, then obstruct for four.
It is almost like the thief telling the victim, oh so sorry, but now you have to pay again. None of these clowns cried when Bush needed to pay for his tax cuts, stimulus rebate that helped fund Chinese manufacturing and walmarts sales, gave big pharm the deal of the lifetime with part D, spent 3-4 trillion on Iraq and Afghanistan, and TARP. I could go on for a while, but you get the point.
Now where is the money when we need to pay for all the fun in the sun, and eight years of behaving like the so-called tax and spend liberal. Its such hypocrisy from the right, that sometimes I'm lost for words. When wall street needs money the federal reserve is the credit card of choice, main street however needs to spend within their means. More and more bankrupt rhetoric, from a party whose austerity has reached more than just economic ideals.
I know, I know its all about a balanced budget, getting all those lazy leeches back to work and people taking responsibility. Unfortunately, conservatives never want to address the policies that led us here, they don't want a balanced approach to the budget (they just want to cut taxes for the rich, spending for everything besides the Pentagon, and you take care of your own healthcare), oh and all the wealth will trickle down (unfortunately to China).
Oh and lets not forget my favorite conservative tool to keep those good, American folk in line. The three g's of moral focus. Or to steal the three words from Hunter Thompson, the Fear and Loathing of your fellow Americans. You know what I mean. They want to take God out of your life, your guns out of your hands and if that doesn't work they always bring up their favorite new second class citizen. Yes my friends those evil gays. And God help us all if I have to hear about those people (use a minority of your choice) selling their food stamps to afford lexus payments one more time, I just might scream.
Will we ever understand the conservatives just want to be left alone to tell everyone else how to live. But I know, I know I'm being unfair. I just have to stop being intolerant to intolerance. I'll try, but I doubt I can do it.
