FALSE WRONG STUPID AND IDIOTIC - left-wing myth!!!!!!!!!!! The war spending was Never off the books. It just was not part of the annual defense budget It was passed as supplemental spending bills 2. And contrary to people saying they were trying to hide the war spending. Buy using supplemental spending bills, everyone knew exactly how much was being spent on the wars Now that it is part of the overall defense budget, no one has any idea of the exact cost. 3. The war spending budgets for the first two years of the obama regime, were done by supplemental spending bills, just like Bush used. It wasn't until the 3rd year that it was part of the defense budget. 10 months ago

I have long been puzzled by the enthusiasm with which many young liberal bloggers cheer on proposals to raise tax rates on high earners. I can understand why they might favor them, but not why they seem to invest so much psychic energy in the issue.

Some of this may just be team ball: You cheer when your side puts up numbers on the scoreboard. So Democratic cheerleaders are rah-rahing what they insist on calling repeal of the Bush tax cuts (which have been in effect now longer than the Clinton tax increases they rolled back).

But the liberal bloggers cannot...
