The Party of Big Government

Republicans have been complaining that Obama represents the party of big government.

That rhetorical flourish would mean a lot more if the Republicans had done anything about reducing the size of government or even reducing waste, fraud and mismanagement. Instead, we've seen massive increases in both the size and inefficiency of government under their watch.

Maybe they should have spent more time governing than invading countries who didn't attack us, torturing POWs for useless non-information, and tapping the phones of American citizens.

Oh, I forgot. The Republicans are so ineffective that Nancy Pelosi stole their lunch money while they controlled all three branches of government. I knew this was all the Democrats' fault somehow.

(Ok, that was a cheap shot. I think we actually agree about many of the failings of the Republican party, and we could probably say the same about the Democrats. Where's Ross Perot when you need him?)
