Good on Tweety.
The Teabaggers and their allies in the GOP have been trying to have it both ways. They’ve made deficits and the national debt their raison d’etre while simultaneously dry humping the coffin of St. Reagan, who ran up record debts on the country’s credit card — as did George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush.
If the Teabaggers/Palinites were truly deficit hawks, they would be denouncing the likes of Reagan and the Bushes and hailing Bill Clinton — who left the second Bush a record surplus. But Kibbe didn’t mention Clinton. Wonder why?
It’s also telling that Kibbe, when challenged by Matthews, starts babbling about what Reagan said — then, when confronted with what Reagan did, is forced to admit Reagan wouldn’t pass the Teabaggers’ supposed litmus test.
Just more proof that the “nonpartisan” Teabagging movement is a just a shallow device to attack a black Democratic president. That’s all it is.
