I knew this would happen sooner or later. I know it has happened before I was born but lets talk about the bullshit the GOP has put out there. First there is the "Reagan ended the Cold War" stretch. Then the almost as laughable "Clinton's great economy was as a result of Reagan's 'Trickle Down Economics'". We also had the "Clinton's surplus really wasn't a surplus at all." And the latest, the failure of the world economy is the fault of a Gay Representative from Massachusetts. It doesn't matter that the Republicans owned Congress for 12 years and the Government as a whole for half of that. Do you see a pattern?
Taking credit for things and distancing yourself from failure is a corporate mindset that has been around since the first cave man who was in charge of the food supply fucked it all up and blamed the lady folk for cooking to much of it. Seriously. Now the Republicans, who before the reset button was pushed earlier this month were crying that the economy was in a tailspin are saying its on an upswing and they are the reason.........WTF? Are you serious? The party of "NO" who would not even pass bills they sponsored, bills that would help the unemployed, bills that would give much needed benefits to 9/11 first responders and bills that would put people back to work are saying THEY are the reason that job growth is on the raise.
Like I said at the beginning of this post I am not surprised. Its been done before but the Democratic leadership needs to respond, we can't do it all ourselves.
