It seems like every week now we are getting a "LECTURE" from a California Democrat (past Deputy Communications Director of the California Democratic Party). Doesn't Arizonians suffer enough from the Border Crossings of hundreds of thousands of Mexican (and other) ILLEGAL ALIENS carrying their obligatory 20lb gunny-sack covered backpacks filled to overflowing with marijuana, cocaine, heroin or meth. Now we have to suffer the "SLINGS AND ARROWS" of a Democrat guest commentatory who worked for the media team of Howard "THE SCREAMER" Dean's "losing" 2004 Presidential Campaign (lost to of all people John "Hanoi" Jane Fonda's BFF" Kerry (remember him, he would go to 1960's Radical Hippie-Flowerchild Concerts and sit with and applaud while Hanoi Jane gave speaches about how she had just come back from visiting the wonderful North Vietnamese Army (photographed smiling and sitting in their anti-aircraft batteries that were used to shoot down American pilots) was and how well they were treating (beating) our P.O.W.'s.
"Democrats want to blame Reagan for the spending increases during his administration."
Was the Reagan era congress to blame for the increasing debt? NO! Congress appropriated LESS than Reagan asked for, NOT more.see: http://youtu.be/P1bZ-TiX8rA
It's easy for a democrat to say what Reagan did almost 30 years ago would make him less of a republican candidate today. His core values and principles would have remained that same. Reagan would have been for a sound fiscal policy, smaller government and a free market enterprise system much like today's Tea Party core values. Democrats want to blame Reagan for the spending increases during his administration. But it was the democrats, headed by Tip O'Neil, that reneged on a promise to cut spending and instead increased spending. The democrats sent Reagan a spending bill and said sign it or shutdown the government.
