Rep. Hoyer is right about one thing: "Well, we spent a lot of money when George Bush was president of the United States in the House and Senate were controlled by Republicans. We spent a lot of money."

While the Republicans did spend a lot of money from 2001 through 2006, they did not spend nearly as much as Democrats did when they controlled Congress from 2007 through 2010. The Democrat controlled Congress in two years had higher deficits than during all 12 years the Republicans controlled the House from 1995 through 2006 combined.

It is hillarious watching these fiscally irresponsible Democrats try to blame Republicans when Democrats have out spent everyone by such a huge margin.

Obama has gotten a permanent pass, but let one of these merely mortal dem candidates say this stuff with a straight face: we have a "paying for" problem.

I might buy into this theme about the permanent demise of the GOP if democrats could actually govern effectively: but of course, they cannot.
