Ask a conservative why deficits only seem to matter when a Democrat holds the White House?

We've seen this several times now. Reagan/ Bush 41 run up massive debt? The GOP lectures that Clinton has to bring it down. Bush/Cheney do the same, Republicans scream Obama has to get it down.

Are we really going to fall of this shit again? Trump tax cuts will do it again on a bigger scale.

... is a hypocrite who will advance any argument, no matter how ridiculous, how insane, how gibberish-sounding it is, when it advances their point and be silent about it when the tables are turned.

If the media didn't repeat what the liars say, it wouldn't matter that the GOP lied.

Fix the media and there won't be problems with GOP lies.

David Corn has recently said it well.

Many Trump voters are the people that Lincoln was speaking of when he said that one can fool some of the people all of the time.

Deficits always grow under the Republicans, thanks to their tax cut fetish.
