At long last GOP, do you have no shame!
You continue to promote you're failed ideas about tax cuts and deregulation in the face of their cause of the biggest financial crisis in 80 years.
You continue to argue for a war and foreign policy that has shown itself to be counterproductive at best and criminal at worst.
You obstruct and fume at any help that might be given to the American Public.
The list goes on.
But now, now you support the systematic policy of torture.
It must be asked, "You have done enough. Have you no sense of decency?"

1. Decency doesn't fit in with their thinking
It just gets in the way of greed.

3. shame? dont you remember Blue-Dress-Gate?
I wish we could/would play hardball for a few years and squish that bug known as the GOP into oblivion.
They are old, ignorant, motivated by hate, uneducated, whiny, spoiled brats who have run things for too long.

4. In fairness, deregulation permitted all kinds of scurrilous 'money making' practices.
Fancy well disguised ways for the money changers to skim even more off the top.

Tax cuts were designed to let these thieves keep the loot.

IMO - it was primarily deregulation that caused the financial meltdown. I don't think tax cuts for the rich (immoral as they are) themselves would have led to the collapse. But they do put undue burdens on the rest of us to pay taxes and support the rich.

5. My reference to the tax cuts was it's a failed idea.
I did not articulate further. I meant to say it is something they continue to say is the best stimulus for the economy. When in fact it is the weakest, if it stimulates at all. The deregulation was the prime cause of the meltdown.
