Galling Republican Maneuver: Wreck The Economy And Attack Democrats

David Kurtz sums up all the noise about the deficit from the right:

One of the truly galling Republican political maneuvers over the last 10 years is to go from squandering a huge budget surplus, racking up trillions in debt, ballooning the deficit, and leaving the next Democratic administration with an economy in shambles — then as soon as the Democrats are in charge refashioning themselves as budget hawks. You might even think they’re setting the Democrats up to fail. I know, hard to believe.

Why Republicans aren’t simply laughed off the stage at this point when they try to argue against budget deficits says a lot about Democratic ineptness, media collusion, and short political memories. But I still find it amazing.

This was actually the lead in to linking to this story but Kurtz’s intro was a better read. Steve Benen appears to agree as he expand on this subject.
