Just look at what the Republican party did the first six years of the George W. Bush administration with Tom DeLay and his K street project. They ramped up annual pork barrel projects from 3,000 to 14,000 a year. In a time of war against the fearful Islamo-Fascists.
When I hear some Tea Party people say "I want my country back;" do you know what comes to my mind?
They want their government teat suck back because they have a keen sense of their own entitlement!
