Barack Obama deserves credit for delivering on his promise to shrink the deficit — a promise that Mitt Romney and his tax cuts would surely have violated — but Americans have to ask themselves whether they really want a smaller government.
While the Bush administration plunged us into two wars and cut taxes on the rich, Republicans in Congress were blocking every Democratic attempt to give the VA the funding they needed to give our veterans the medical care they were promised.
At long last, we can answer the simple question that Democrats have been asking Republicans since March 23, 2010: You got a better idea? Unfortunately, the answer is a disappointing “no.”
Barack Obama is daring the terrorists. He’s standing in their front yard. He’s calling them out.
At the state level, Republicans are cynically and diabolically riding to victory on the wings of a big federal government while claiming to be doing the exact opposite.
