This goes a long ways towards explaining their confusion over spending and debt ... Lemme see if I've got this right:

Spending starts in the House unless its a Republican House then it begins and ends with the President as long as that President is a Democrat. When the President and both houses of Congress are all Republican then spending originates with the congressional minority.

Have I got it right?
Well played.

You do understand the difference between "we" and "I," don't you, you Gnarly Old Perv? Since no one has ever chosen to be "with" you, and pronouns or other syntactical construction are not of you, I guess not. BTW, the term is lousy; you should at least not how to spell your epithet.

Death…. no one can match Pelosi/Democrats in Spending!! When Pelosi took office Jan. 4, 2007 the National Dept. was (8.6 trillion) at the close of business on Oct. 22, the Dept. stood at (13.67 trillion) an increase of approximately 5 trillion., the $3.22 trillion in new debt accumulated during the record-setting 111th Congress!! Today our Debt 16.5 trillion so your observation is correct Pelosi and the Democrats during their control of both House/Senate created Historic Debt!!

Conservatism: A Look Ahead

.... While I did not mention this in the article, I think any reader would understand that I was writing from the same perspective as Bartlett; that is, as a conservative who, not without reservations, had come to find a reasonably comfortable place in the Republican party. I must note in the connection that traditionalist commentators in discussing their place in the political landscape always seem to have the Republican party in the back of their mind; that is, more frequently than not in such appraisals, the fate of traditional conservatism is tied to the fortunes of the Republican party. I was no exception in this regard, but I did urge that we disassociate from the political parties. In other words, given what I considered to be the betrayal of the Republican party, I concluded that traditional conservatives “should never swear undying allegiance to either political party.”

Moderate Republicanism is a tendency that increasingly defies ideological analysis and instead requires psychological analysis. The psychological mechanism is fairly obvious. The radicalization of the GOP has placed unbearable strain on those few moderates torn between their positions and their attachment to party. Many moderate conservatives have simply broken off from the party, at least in its current incarnation, and are hoping or working to build a sane alternative. Those who remain must escape into progressively more baroque fantasies.
