In short, it's still Bush's fault.<quoted text>yeap and we can thank the Liberal G.W. Bush too just like Bruce Bartlett said In the Imposter, How George W. Bush Bankrupted America and Betrayed the Reagan Legacy and if go to Chapter 9 and he Starts out and say "George W. Bush's best known domesitc policy may be his relentless effort to cut taxes. Yet Ironically, he may ultimatelly be responsible for enactment of the largest tax increase in American history. It may not come on his watch, but it is inevitable and will be the direct results of Bush's Polices"
I remember the warnings Republicans gave before the housing crisis. They were demonized by being called racist and uncaring about the poor. Then there was Bush's SS reform. Shot down like a kite flying in the sky. When Gingrich and the Republicans introduced Welfare Reform, it was said Republicans wanted to get even with the poor. Same thing when Gingrich introduced block grants for welfare and school lunches. The Democrats said Republicans wanted kids to starve.
Moving forward, we introduced Medicare reform. That led to commercials about granny getting pushed over the cliff in a wheelchair. Boehner fought hard to cut spending, and now the Republicans lost power not to mention seats in the Senate.
How can the Republicans do the right and proper thing if people and the liberal media won't support them? It's not possible. Don't blame Republican politicians for not doing the right thing, blame ignorant voters and the media instead.
