Look, I certainly share you enthusiasm for taking Obama to task on spending, but where was Gingrich when Bush increased our national debt by 92% during his term in office?
Okay, so we target Obama on spending, and he turns around and reminds us our team did the very same thing.
How productive will that be?
Our own Leftist leaning idiots, undercut our ability to advocate for sound policy. That’s very destructive. It means nobody has clean enough hands to push for sound policy.
While you make a valid point, my response is:
So if running a $400 billion deficit was wrong, and Mr. 0bama said it was while he was Senator 0bama, how was quadrupling it a good idea? How can you support a guy who comes up with that brilliant solution to the problem he saw?
“Okay, so we target Obama on spending, and he turns around and reminds us our team did the very same thing.”
He can’t do that unless he runs his own ads, which will only reinforce the image of him as a petulent teenager. Images are powerful.
Obama will not turn around and remind us that our team did the very same thing. He doesn’t want to have that conversation. They are already doing anything and everything to avoid it. This isn’t a clean hands competition, it’s an election.
As to where Gingrich was when Bush was running up spending, he was on the couch with Nancy Pelosi.
