Hey Bush Haters: Just So’s You Don’t Miss It

Well look what’s among the news not fit to print:

Even with spending control slipping a bit (up 6.4% in January 2007 compared to January 2006), the deficit is 57% lower through the first four months of FY07 than it was at the same time in FY06. I believe that merits a “Wow.”
There is a very real possibility that the federal budget will be in a surplus situation when President Bush hands over the keys to the White House in January 2009.

Not that liberals have to change their game plan, or anything. We all know it’s fundamentally illusionist, anyway.

Well, that doesn’t change that Bush is causing global warming to benefit Halliburton and is a poodle to Tony Blair.

Justin If I disagree with Bush, you call me a “Bush Hater”
But I can not call Rethuglicans “Gay Haters” ?

I don’t see where I wrote what you claim, Steve. Looks to me like a typical willfully ignorant oversimplification.

You controlled the House, the Senate and the White House and you spent money like it was going out of style.
Will there be a budget surplus in ’09?
Maybe.
But if there is, it will be because of 2 years of tight Democratic budget scrutiny!

See, Matt, you’ve offered further indication of the differences in our two approaches.
I don’t consider it to be the case that “I” — or even “my side” — had control or “spent money like it was going out of style.” The Republicans did spend like Democrats, but that’s one of the reasons that I actively participated in sending them the harsh message of electoral loss. In contrast, you will spin for your side as part of the political game.
And I can only second johnb’s reaction to your oxymoron.

Hey johnb: who cleaned up the last time the Reps made a mess of the budget? Clinton.
Who was in charge the last time there was a surplus?
Clinton.
Who drove the deficits–and the debt–through the roof?
Bush and the Republicans.
Since WWII, the national debt has fallen steadily, except under Reagan/George I and George II.
So, tell me again which is the party of “fiscal responsibility”?
Hint: it ain’t the Republicans.

Hint: it ain’t the Democrats either Klaus. It would take a government not beholden to either ideology to do it. It would take a government beholden to the people to do it.
