Don’t wanna mess up the other thread where you said this, so new thread.
I’ve lost all respect for Rush. He’s virtually worthless and his turned his back on almost everything he said when Billary was president or Obama:
“Nobody is a fiscal conservative anymore. All this talk about concern for the deficit and the budget has been bogus for as long as it’s been around.”
How many years have people tried to scare everybody about [the deficit]? How many years, how many decades have politicians tried to scare us about the deficit, the national debt, (Sen. Jim Sasser pronunciation) “the dafycit,” any number of things? Yet here we’re still here, and the great jaws of the deficit have not bitten off our heads and chewed them up and spit them out.
And seven years earlier in response to a story that Obama was a responsible spender:
They are admitting that big spending is a huge problem. In pointing to this piece, “Hey, it isn’t me, it isn’t me,” they are admitting, they are accepting the premise, if you will, the Tea Party premise, our premise, that Obama’s spending is reckless, that it’s dangerous, that it is destroying the future of your kids and grandkids. That’s why the Tea Party exists. People know that this is happening. They know they’ve never seen spending like this. They know they’ve never seen indebtedness racked up this fast. They know it instinctively. That’s why the Tea Party came into existence.
He would never have supported Donald Trump had he believed the things that came out of his mouth in the 1990s while Billary was president: “Character counts,” repeated daily while America was held hostage.
But here, the bottom line is that no one except a tiny vocal minority believe that responsible fiscal policy matters. Everyone else just argues over which government programs to use to build our massive debt even higher.
It’s like Democrats and Republicans are embracing AOC’s and CSB’s modern monetary theory. So why do they bother arguing. We can spend everything we want on every single thing everyone wants. The Democrat version of it is “socialism,” but so what, deficits and debt don’t matter, and those terrible free traders and libertarians, all five of them, are obviously nuts and should stop whining.
Our politicians are utterly ridiculous. And their sycophants suck too.
