The GOP in 2009

Here's what we're left with, folks. The same EXACT people who unabashedly spent us into oblivion and made every imaginable wrong turn along the way; who have NO PROBLEMS WHATEVER with bigger government despite being the party of limited government; is being show how to do things by the other side, and they don't like it one bit.

Obama requested that 121 government programs - including programs like the one the Pentagon requested not be funded any longer, two years ago - be cut from the federal budget to the tune of $17 billion in the first year alone.

Now, if you have a bank account with $3,500 in it, this is like saving you $1.50 a month or so. So it's not exactly a big deal.

BUT, that won't stop partisan idiotic fucktards like Mitch McConnell from castigating Obama and his cabinet for being only slightly LESS egregious in their spending than that of the man whose cock from which they drank the past 8 years.

Republicans rip Obama for insufficient budget cuts - CNN.com

Hey Mitch, on behalf of everyone in the United States of America who doesn't have their head up their ass...

Rather than disparaging saving $17 billion perhaps the Republicans might consider better uses of the money. Of course we’d save a lot more if we get out of the idiotic wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

being the party of limited government
The problem discovered by the Republicans during the last Administration is that ‘limited government’ is an anachronistic fantasy in the 21st Century.

Unfortunately, it looks like we are going to add the third war to the list instead - the one in Pakistan.
