Funny that you say that Old Army. The rebuttal from your beloved GOP was from none other than Mitch Daniels. You remember him, under his leadership as head of The Office of Management and Budget, the federal budget went from a $236 Billion surplus to a $400 Billion deficit in just 2 years.
He's also the genius that said the Iraq war would only cost us $60 Billion.
The GOP may not dig the policies of the Dems, and particularly they do NOT like President Obama's policies and ideas. But at least you guys could put forward some candidates or politicians that aren't abject failures with your policies.
