"When would big government suit a Republican's needs?" many here have asked. Let me answer that question. When the Republican Party added another layer of entitlement spending. (Medicare Prescription) When the Republican Party ramped up pork barrel spending in a time of war. When the Republican Party expanded farm subsidies and ethanol mandates. When the Republican Party doubled the size of the Department of Education. When the Republican Party wants to pay more for the defense of Europe than the Europeans do themselves.

Again, "When would big government suit a Republican's needs?" You and many here have asked. Let me answer that question.

When the Republican Party removed 'the evil Saddam Hussein who killed hundreds of thousands of his fellow Iraqis' and believe that it's the American people's responsibility, rather than the Iraqi people's responsibility to free themselves.

When the Republican Party promoted the 'ownership society' that helped bring on the housing bubble and all of its subsequent bailouts.

When the Republicans party creates new programs like their precious 'Faith Based Initiatives.'

By the way, as the US was pouring billions into their defense, those countries being defended, were pouring millions into building all things except the means to defend themselves. Say it ain't so!

Not his words, you must understand.  Just a "depressing" observation from a "very smart" White House aide:
 


 

Joe Klein -- last seen beclowning himself on Benghazi -- gets a big laugh at this line because it's so true, right?  Republicans are just the worst.  Lincoln would have never been able to handle this bunch of radicals.  Maybe this "very smart" White House source should go re-watch Lincoln, or re-read his history books.  Congressional Republicans were the ones who
