Ah, how the wages of the last seven years of GOP sin and malfeasance haunt us.
It would seem, for example, that in addition to the hundreds of billions of dollars we’ve pissed away (and continue to piss away) in a stupidly conceived of war in Iraq, we may now end up pissing away hundreds of billions of dollars to shore up our failing financial system (resulting from lax regulatory practices).
When you consider the backbreaking amount of debt that’s being created by these expenditures (all made necessary by conservative Republican blunders), clearly, even if Obama and the Democrats win, there won’t be enough money left to carry out the type of massive progressive reforms needed.
You’ve got to give the right wing some credit here: they not only win when they win; they also somehow find a way to win when they lose.
So what do you think? Which best explains the last seven years of Republican misrule — incompetence or pure evil genius?
