Utah Senator Mike Lee served up the Tea Party rhetoric (unsweetened). The National Debt is a “pit of despair,” he said, neglecting to mention that President George W. Bush doubled it in 8 years. Senator Lee held out the prospect of a Balanced Budget Amendment: “Get Washington to put down the federal shovel… The shining city on a hill should replace the city in a hole. Walk away from hole-digging hell.” Never mind the fact that economic recovery (which is necessary every time GOP ideology causes an epic recession or depression) requires deficit spending.

In today’s session, Newt Gingrich is slated to give more details about his plan to make the Moon our 51st state.

More inspiring words from the right-wing Presidential candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann: “Self reliance means, if anyone will not work, neither should he eat.” Is that in the Bible? Maybe, but it’s also a quote from V.I. Lenin and it was written in the 1936 Soviet Constitution.
Highlighting the disconnect between Tea-GOP rhetoric and reality, today we learned that a new estimation from the U.S. Census means that a record 49.1 million Americans are now poor. Largely as a result of Republican policies, which continue to stifle job creation.

In the fine Karl Rove tradition, Republican Presidential Candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann says President Obama “has driven our economy into a ditch.” This is why GOP rhetoric is so annoying. It’s the opposite of the truth, it’s Orwellian. They commit huge crimes, and loudly accuse Democrats of being the guilty party. This seems to confuse the media, who then report that both our major political parties are bad.
And Democrats still have not figured out how to dig themselves out from under this giant pile of lies.
BTW, Rep. Bachmann voted for the Ryan budget plan, which would require a $6 trillion increase in the National Debt.
