Deficits Don't Matter When Republicans Are In Charge

Southern Beale notices the same media complicity in the sudden Republican about face on the deficits as we had when the Bush Administration was hyping WMD's in the run up to the Iraq war.

As the 2012 budget forces us all to go ‘round the hamster wheel for another insufferable bullshit national debate, I’d like to remind people of one thing: deficits don’t matter.

That wasn’t just Dick Cheney’s wishful thinking when trying to shove tax cuts for the uber-wealthy down our throats in the middle of wartime, that was a Weekly Standard column by none other than the august Irwin Seltzer, of the conservative Hudson Institute
