Political games. Deficit budgets were the bees knees with the same crowd when Bush was doing it, but now it makes a useful wedge issue. Show me a less hypocritical group that consistently demands balanced budgets regardless of who is in power - this group is just maneuvering, and therefore dismissable.

I don't see how anyone can take Republicans seriously when they whinge about deficit spending and the like. The deficit ballooned whilst they controlled all aspects of government. Unfortunately no one has a shorter memory than an American voter so no doubt they will pick up some votes from this deceitful tactic.

Obama is spending even more than Bush but they really are in the same boat. Glen Beck said the only difference between a neo-con and a Progressive Liberal is the former believes in a stronger military budget.

Parnell I think you fail to understand the people in groups like the tea party are not neo-cons and are usually they are the ones, like Michael Savage, who were very critical of Bush and his policies. Many of these people believe Bush was a fiscal Socialist and felt let down by the neo con Republicans; which resulted in many conservative Republicans and even Democrats becoming independents like myself. We do not want these globalist neo-cons in power anymore than the so-called Progressive liberals. I am starting to really agree with Savage there is only one party and it is whoever the elites want in office. We need a new third party who are not globalist and are true conservatives. I will have to learn a lot more about this group before I can support them so I thank Panther for the link to them.
Well then, brothers and fellow citizens and soldiers, remember this in order that your memorial, your fame and freedom will be eternal.
