Bush flops on budget, sets agenda for next president (again)

Curious, no? Um, no.

Curiously...not at all, the Republicans are now whining that the Democrat's idea of Pay As You Go, meaning any new spending has to be funded, and not with borrowed money, has the Republicans whining about it being fiscally irresponsible. The Republicans took total control of the government, turned a projected five trillion dollar surplus into a massive deficit, and gave us earmarks like Ted Stevens' $230 million Bridge To Nowhere, and on the second day that Democrats are in office, they are screaming that the Democrats are irresponsible and don't do the right thing about spending.

Yeah, I'll trust them with the budget. Sure. Buncha thieves.

Just the Elephants?

Let's face it they're all a bunch of thieves, doesn't matter which side of the aisle they're on. Here's a tidbit- we have record tax revenues and record deficets.Do the math. In case any of you are wondering why the democrats won. It's because people like me, a Rerpublican for 30 years, didn't bother to vote. Our party needs a good butt whipping, then maybe they'll get straight.In fact, most of congress could use one.I'm staying republican because the only way to effect change is from the inside out.

I don't trust either party

But as Bill Maher says, the people the Democrats have sold out to are slightly less scary than the people the Republicans have sold out to.

Point well taken

You may have a point media girl, It's just that I think that we make too many apologies for our own particular parties. Democrats (like Bill Maher) make every excuse for Democrats and Republicans do the same (if not more so) my point is that as a lifelong Republican I began screaming for Tom DeLay's head 4 years ago! We'll see real progress only when we start holding our own party's feet to the fire! They all seem to ignore us so long as they think they have our votes in their back pockets.
