    According to Politico44

    Dick Cheney is on with John King this morning and saying: On Obama and the economy: “I worry a lot that they’re using the current set of economic difficulties to try and justify a massive expansion of the government."

    Are you serious, Dick? You used 9/11 to justify the massive expansion of the government and you're blasting Obama for using the financial crisis for doing the same?? :cuckoo:

    The biggest expansion of government that has ever occurred occurred under Dubyah. Who was his VP again?

    Maybe the Cheney from the King interview should debate the Cheney referenced in this article:

    "WHEN DICK CHENEY SAID, "Deficits don't matter," economists took that as proof of the economic illiteracy of the Bush administration. But it turns out there is a case to be made that Cheney was onto something...."


    Unfortunately I can't link the article until I have more posts...

    Republicans stopping loving government spending when they were stopped from being able to decide where the money would be spent.

    Nobody elected Obama to shrink the size of the government.
