Quote of the Day

"It's painful when reality intrudes. Here is the reality: the Republicans have spent the past 30 years creating deficits and the Democrats have spent the past 30 years closing them. The unimportance of deficits became an article of faith during the second Bush Administration: 'Reagan proved that deficits don't matter,' Dick Cheney famously said. It has been rather hilarious for those of us with even a minimal grasp of recent history to watch these folks pull fierce 180-degree turns on the issue--and it is even more hilarious to watch them accuse Obama of hyper-partisanship after the dump-truck full of garbage they visited upon his head these past few years." -- Joe Klein, Time Magazine

That IS a great quote. Thanks for sharing! What is the name of the villain in that one Batman movie... isn't there one called Two-Face?
