I want to apologize if I have ever suggested that Republicans and Tea Baggers are stupid. They are instead perhaps simply uninterested in fact.
Yet again, I met the nicest Right Winger last night who thought Obama passed TARP (WRONG) and that it cost taxpayers 3 trillion dollars (FAIL). I have yet to meet a single Republican who knows that almost all of TARP has been paid back and will likely result in a profit for the Fed.
He was also surprised to learn that the bulk of the Obama Stimulus bill was in the form of tax cuts. He almost fell off his chair when I told him Obama has actually cut the budget.
