It’s not Glenn Beck saying this. It’s the Senate Minority Leader.
“I’m not sure that’s what people voted for. I mean they were angry with President Bush. They were not happy with the economy…. Whether they intended to see America kind of turned into a Western European country as a result of an explosion of spending and debt and regulation is another matter.”
Since 64% of the country currently approves of President Obama, I would say that either (a) two-thirds of the country equates the Economic Recovery bill and increasing the upper tax margin by 4% to socialism; or (b) Mitch McConnell is an idiot who shouldn’t be taken seriously about anything.
“Republicans are very much in favor of dealing with [the country’s economic crisis],” McConnell said. “What we’re not in favor of is going on this spending spree over the next five to 10 years and sending the bill to our grandchildren.”
That’s true. They were only willing to do so under George W. Bush.
