FeedMeCrap vomits: The GOP has already told us that deficits don't matter.

As usual, the craven Mr. Crap fails to quote Cheney's statement in context.

To Paul O'Neill, then Treasury Secretary: "You know, Paul, Reagan proved [by his election] that deficits don't matter [to American voters]. We won the mid-term elections; this is our due."

Obviously, then, Cheney was right: deficits don't matter to American voters, because they re-elected the man who accumulated a deficit larger than all other administrations combined: Barack Hussein Owebama.
