The Republican Party has broken many PROMISES. We conservatives missed the boat during the eight year George W. Bush 'Reign of Error' spending spree. The Republican Party oversaw a two and a half times larger increase in goob-mint than when 'Bubba' Clinton was president. The Republican administration gave airline companies a $17 billion taxpayer gift in 2001 after 9-11 - NOT PAID FOR. Republicans doubled the size of the Department of Education - NOT PAID FOR Republicans mandated ethanol subsidies. - NOT PAID FOR Republicans increased pork barrel spending from 3,000 to 14,000 annual projects. - NOT PAID FOR Republicans added another entitlement spending program.

Small minds always leap to the answers given the last time around, which is probably why Maxine Waters keeps getting re-elected. But the last time is not necessarily the same as this time. A terrorist attack is not the same as the Cold War, a war in Afghanistan is not the same as a war in Iraq, and Mitt Romney is not the same as John McCain or Bob Dole.
