So I modified a Heritage graph to make a very simple point. And if I were the House Speaker, I would show this chart to the American people at every opportunity and repeat a very simple mantra:
In 2009, Democrats and President Obama rammed a "one-time" Stimulus spending spree through Congress that ended up costing the American people $840 billion.
Since then, that so-called "one-time" spending spree was built into each and every year's budget because of the Democrats' unprecedented failure to pass a budget.
Therefore our message to Democrats is simple: remove the "one-time" Stimulus spending spree from the baseline budget.
Then, and only then, will we talk about other measures to balance the budget. Not that Democrats have ever worried about "revenues" before spending money they didn't have, mind you -- but, hey, let's give them the benefit of the doubt this time.
How hard is that? Am I the only Republican with Photoshop?
John Boehner is a horrible leader for House Republicans. He is inarticulate. He is unprincipled. And, worse, he is more willing to brawl conservatives -- the Tea Party activists that gave him his speakership -- than he is to fight the radical Leftist Democrats who are dragging our country into an economic abyss.
Which is why he needs to be replaced.
2012 is coming -- and, with your help, I predict a conservative tide that will sweep not only the Sorocrats from power, but many of these so-called Republicans.
