a sick joke. They are criminally irresponsible. The GOP, let me add, has not been particularly virtuous on spending, either, but they have never been as bad as the democrats. Bad? Yes. As bad as the democrats? No. Not even close. Not even in the same zip code. Here’s a great quote:
These people know the truth, and they’re deliberately dodging it. They’re cynically hoping to ride a wave of ginned-up opposition to any and all entitlement reform in hopes of getting across the finish line in the 2012 elections. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a more cynical strategy on a problem so important in my lifetime.
Cynical? Oh yes, more so than I could possibly imagine. I never thought “responsible” people could act this way.
