When you read news items like this:
CRAWFORD, Texas – President Bush warned Congress on Saturday that he will use his veto power to stop runaway government spending.
“The American people do not want to return to the days of tax-and-spend policies,” Bush said in his radio address.
It’s hard to know whether to laugh or to cry. The man must be doing drugs to make a statement like that. Six years of a rubber stamp congress giving him free reign to run up deficits and once the Democrats are in control he suddenly starts yammering about “tax-and-spend policies”? Someone needs to slap him and tell him that it would’ve helped the budget considerably if he hadn’t run off and started an illegitimate war in the first fucking place.
