Reagan tripled the national debt debt explosion has resulted not from big spending by the Democrats, but instead the Republican Party's embrace, .. insidious doctrine that deficits don't matter if they result from tax cuts DStockman Reagan raised taxes 11 times Reagan expanded the size of government The federal work force increased from 2.8 million to 3 million. vs Clinton federal work force went down from 2.9 million to 2.68 million.

Gentle Readers,

Off topic, but,

1. Reagan fought the Cold War, added 18 million jobs from a base of 54 million, and doubled
GDP from $3 trillion a year to $6 trillion. His resolute Defense and Foreign policies ended the
Cold War, resulting in huge defense savings.

2. Defense spending went down under Clinton because Reagans policies were successful.
Reagan hired people to defend the country during the Cold War- they weren't needed in
the Clinton Administration.

3. The Democrat Party majority in Congress raised taxes in Reagan Administration 11 times.

4. Tax cuts for working people is a good policy, ergo the EITC. You're right- Republicans
cut taxes for WORKING PEOPLE, not ' the rich '. The rich only get tax cuts from Republicans

( continued ) when they invest their capital to create jobs. When they spend their money,
they pay taxes.

5. Reagan did give amnesty to illegal immigrants. So, why do we need to do that again?

Wait until next year -- 2016, that is.

That’s what disappointed Republican spinners kept saying Tuesday night as they watched Mitt Romney’s hopes crash and burn in swing state after swing state.

How many times did I hear a Republican talk about how their party’s deep bench of future all-stars will return it to power in Washington in four years?

But all the Ryans, Rubios, Bushes, Haleys and Christies in America can’t put the GOP -- or the country -- back together again.

The GOP is a wreck -- and not just in California, where the party’s registration is now...
