As we all know, seven of the eight of George W. Bush's budgets excluded the costs for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. This was very important to the Republican Party due to the fact that they relished their most cherished and precious Bush tax cut.
Also included in our Islamic president's 2010 budget was to pay for the wars in the annual budget, an idea very anathema to all card-carrying Republicans. I mean, if you 'cost' a war 'off' budget, then good Republicans can consider it to be free in monetary terms and fiscal costs. Bravo!
And if a card-carrying member of the Republican Party moved casualties 'off' the casualty list then a war could be considered 'bloodless?'
