One of the world historical snow jobs perpetrated by the GOP on the American people is that the Republicans are more trustworthy on matters of national security and ficscal responsibility, and that they are the party of the morally serious grownups. If you voted for Bush rather than Kerry or Gore, ask yourself: Do you really think either would have messed up thnigs as bad as this administratiion has done on both counts? It's comical that anybody should have ever taken these guys with their short-term, make-a-buck, crony mentality seriously when it comes to responsible government.
I've got my problems with the Democrats, but please--the Republicans? How long will it take us to dig out of the whole they have dug us into? To think that at this point we still allow them even to frame the terms of the debate. No serious, sane person can extend to them even a shred of credibility. They should be laughed out of town. Enough of the obvious belabored.
