    PERRspectives: AP Perpetuates Myth of GOP Fiscal Discipline

    Fsical responsibility my ass, Reagan produced one of the biggest debts in the nation's history because he was a fiscally irresponsible dumbass who had to raise taxes in order to avert disaster, now why is that Republicans like to remind people that they were the party that help abolish slavery and forget the fiscal irresponsibility of Regan and Bush the Elder that produced the biggest deficits of all times?

    Are you implying that starting two wars and cutting taxes to pay for them is not fiscally responsible?
    That starting Medicare part D with no means of funding it was not fiscally responsible?

    There's certainly no myth about Democrat fiscal responsibility is there?

    None.

    But at least they're above-board with their fiscal irresponsibility.

    Bubba had nothing to do with the mythical "balanced budget".

    The budget was on autopilot to come into balance by 2002, given a paltry 3% growth rate, since the late '80s, as pointed out by Perot uncounted times in '92.

    As per usual, the politicians stand around and wait for something good to happen, then take credit for it, or for something bad to happen and shift the blame.

    Nothing new there either.

    Democrats have spent less then Rs for decades.

    The Rs just lie about shit repetedly until their minons believe lies.
