    Far from being the conservative he claims to be, President Bush has allowed discretionary spending to increase at a far greater rate than it did during the Clinton years. Bush has abandoned the pay-as-you-go principle and chosen to combine drastic tax cuts with fighting two wars. Lyndon Johnson tried the guns-and-butter route during the Vietnam War, and we paid for it with double-digit inflation and double-digit interest rates, followed by a severe recession. Bush is going the guns, butter and cream route, and the consequences will be bad, very bad.

    No we dont really wonder about it. Kerry's vote tells more than enough to explain it. Senator Kerry thinks raising taxes is more important than supplying our troops with body armor. Not very difficult to understand at all.

    The question people are asking, and rightly so, is was his judgement sound in doing so? Is it more important that we have a balanced budget or that human lives are spared. If he was really concerned about paying for it he could have proposed some cuts in wasteful spending rather than increasing taxes. What would be the point of increasing taxes and stiffling the economic recovery? how would that bring more revenue into the coffers?

    Some dude running for President with absolutely zero chance of winning - or beating Ralph Nader, for that matter.

    Obviously tpahl couldn't resist the allure of your overwhelming charisma and scintillating personality.

    Or maybe he just wanted to troll a bit.
