Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Not so fast there, laddy-buck

I’ve had this argument with liberal friends more than once, as I’m sure most of you out there have.

The ideas that federal spending exploded under George W. Bush, that “Bush’s wars” account for our spending explosion, that Reaganism died with Reagan, and that we are on a spending binge that started decades ago are all nonsense.

Our current spending binge is a very recent phenomenon with a very specific starting point: the year Democrats started writing budgets (or continuing resolutions), compounded by Barack Obama’s inauguration.

Which makes it all the more infuriating to be lectured by our Pretend pResident on fiscal responsibility, a concept for and of which he has neither the slightest regard nor the most rudimentary grasp. Bush spent more than he should’ve, and more than a real conservative would’ve, to be sure. But to even compare his admin to the absolutely insane profligacy Ogabe instituted as a means of fulfilling the statist dreams of sixty years’ worth of “progressive” letters to Santa is disingenuous, and utterly ludicrous.

  1. W spent more than all previous Presidents combined and Bobo the Playskool pResident spent more than W and all previous Presidents combined, so exactly who is the biggest pisser away of taxpayer money? Bobo and his sycophants are pathological liars that will stop at nothing to destroy America. Real Americans must take a page from the left’s book and in 2012 practice Occupy the Oval Office.
