The Lie

The lie, of course, is that Republicans are in the slightest position to throw a stone at anyone regarding fiscal responsibility. As has been distinguished, when in power the GOP spends more profusely than the Democrats, not less, and woefully disregards the slightest need to balance budgets. Dick Cheney, known for his lack of regard for public opinion, clearly articulated true GOP sentiments, “Reagan showed us that deficits don't matter.”

We all know which administration adopted policies that led to the first surplus since WWII, but why let facts interfere with the fun?

Taken in isolation, the hit piece is actually rather legit. Hayworth's hypocrisy is legion, and ironically, McCain actually has been a voice for fiscal restraint, but don't tell that to the seething AZ political blogosphere. McCain will prevail in August, and on the 25th you'll be able to hear the crickets chirping, unless of course you're at the victory celebration.

Having not been in Congress, on spending Jonathan Paton gets a bash Giffords free card he will no doubt use at every opportunity. After all, Arizona's budget is a national showcase for fiscal responsibility and excellence in government.

JD Hayworth is an arrogant gas bag. There is nothing in his twelve year stint in office to suggest he should be elected.

I agree with x4mr that McCain will win the primary, but Hayworth would be easier to beat in the general.

When are the Democrats going to get into this? They can't wait until August, can they?

Every time I hear Republicans bitch about spending I want to throw up. The hypocrisy is beyond beyond beyond shameless.
