Quote Of The Day

Stephen Green on the Republican Party’s newly re-discovered “commitment” to fiscal conservatism:

The problem of course is that ever since about 1998, the Republicans haven’t had a leg to stand on when it comes to spending restraint. If they’re going to sounds ballsy on the radio, they’d better act ballsy in Congress — otherwise voters will gladly take goodies from non-hypocrites who don’t harangue them, instead of from hypocrites who do.

And, notwithstanding the vote yesterday, they’ve still got a lot to prove and a lot of penance to do.

    And, notwithstanding the vote yesterday, they’ve still got a lot to prove and a lot of penance to do.

    I wholeheartedly agree.

    DITTO! I am so tired of this alternating GOOD COP – BAD COP act between these two parties.

    Vote Democrat and they will steal your money and liberty quickly then brag about it…

    Vote Republican and they will steal your money and liberty slowly and tell you what a favor they did you beacuse of how bad it would have been if the other guy had been in charge.
