I cannot say that Republicans are given to actually lying about what they think they can do with American Government.
So maybe some of them just aren’t aware, somehow, that what they say is not always (Not usually in my view) accurate or on target.
I do know that some Republicans are fond of bragging (Loudly and long) about how their party is dedicated to reducing the National Deficits and the National Debt. In my opinion, they seem to actually believe that their Right Wing Fiscal theories are best for America.
The question of “What Is Best For America” may also depend on which “America” they are speaking about here. I have noted that in the Republican world view, there are often two separate America’s talked about– The Red State America and The Blue State America (or) The Conservative America (“The Real America) and The Liberal America (The Commies, Hippies, Nazis and other various non-significant low life forms.)
Ask the Occupy Wall Street People what I am talking about. They have been subjected to this “Division” by the dark side of Conservatism and they know full well what I am talking about.
My question then is “When did any Republicans who have ever been in Government achieve any kind of significant reduction in the national debt or the deficit? (Other than Eisenhower or Nixon?)
It certainly wasn’t during the administration of President George W. Bush.
I believe, if I am not mistaken, the Bush Administration I just mentioned ran up the biggest national debt in the history of the country and we are still paying for that one– and our children and, quite possibly, our grandchildren will be paying for it too.
President Richard Nixon is reported to have been the last Republican who had any success at all in reducing the national debt and the deficit but most people I talk to don’t seem to remember his achievements in that area.
But credit where credit is due! Nixon did have some significant success with debt reduction. But that was in a time when a different Republican party existed. Back in those glory days for America, the political parties could work across party lines and actually get things done.
I doubt that very many of today’s “No Compromise” obstructionists on the side of Conservative idiocy could ever come anywhere close to achieving any of those wonderful old agreements that contributed so much to America’s greatness back then.
They tell me that President G.W. Bush’s Administration increased the national debt by about 6 trillion+ dollars during it’s reign while Obama has only seen an increase of around 1.7 trillion dollars. That is quite a difference in my opinion and I don’t see how that gives any Conservatives any room to strut and crow about their handling of the Economy.
The “Real” truth is that every Democrat President since Franklin D. Roosevelt has reduced the national debt and every Republican President except for Dwight D. Eisenhower and Richard M. Nixon has seen it rise significantly in spite of their claims to the contrary.
So, when you hear all that old rhetoric on the campaign trail about how Obama has caused the national debt to balloon out of control since he took office and how one or more of the Republican candied-dates can “Get America’s Economy Back On Track Again” with one plan or the other, you can (In my opinion) just discount their claims as the same, tired old BS and pull the lever on that voting machine for the Democrat.
With an understanding of how so many mis-guided and mis-informed Bubbas on the Radical Conservative Right seem to hate the fact that Barack Obama is President of The United States, I, for one, am discounting every single piece of “Anti-Obama” BS rhetoric proceeding forth from them and their myth-manufacturing media.
