    Anyone remembers that Ronald Reagan liked to remark that he had no left the Democratic Party, but that it had left him!

    And so there are the Reagan numbers, above!

    And now there is Barack Obama!

    The Republicans want government back to the Herbert Hoover levels, to listen to any of them. Anyone sees what good came of smaller government, even then.

    (Herbert Hoover couldn't keep spending even in line with GDP, which FDR was able to do. The GDP dropped like a rocket due to Republicans Herbert Hoover-Boehner, Cantor, McConnell, Romney, Huntsman, Pawlenty, Gingrich, Cain, McCain, Palin, Bachman, Paul, Paul, and nowhere famous, et. al. With FDR in office, federal budget growth and GDP growth both happened at the same pace, and time.)
