I want healthcare, I want condoms, I want abortions, I want food stamps, I want cell phones, and I want them now. And I want you to pay for them. The deficit? As far as we're concerned, that's a made up number. What difference is a deficit to me. Just gimme my free $h!t and be on your way.

Which is nothing like "I want tax breaks" and "I want oil subsidies" and "I want mortgage deduction" and "I want crop subsidies" and the like, right?

Simple fact: Bush was handed a balanced budget. Republicans, in control of the House, the Senate, and the Presidency decided they wanted "free $h!t" in the way of taxcuts that would not, could not, and did not pay for themselves.

Then Republicans, in control of the House, the Senate, and the Presidency took on two wars and refused to pay for them.

Then Republicans, in control of the House, the Senate, and the Presidency voted in the largest increase in Medicare coverage in a generation.

And now you blame the deficit on Democrats.

It's like Kathleen Parker says: "The party doesn’t need a poll or a focus group. It needs a mirror."
