The NYT Follows The Dems’ Lead

Not much of a surprise here.  Yesterday, Republicans and Tea Partiers were terrorists according to the Vice President and House Democrats.  Today, columnist Joe Nocera declares that “the country has watched in horror as the Tea Party Republicans have waged jihad on the American people.”  Nice.

Let’s see.  Spending under Obama has increased from under 20% of GDP to over 25% in just a couple of years.  Our federal debt has gone from $10.626 Trillion as of January 20, 2009 to $14.343 Trillion just 2 1/2 years later.  An increase of 35%.

What did we get for it?  Anemic growth and persistent unemployment.  So who, exactly, is waging war on the U.S. economy?  Where do these people think we are going to find the money for all of this spending?  Under the mattresses of “millionaires and billionaires”?  It is never going to happen.  Wealth is mobile.  If the government tries to confiscate wealth, those who create it — along with jobs for the rest of us — will take their money and our jobs elsewhere.

By the way, what happened to civility in political discourse?  We have Dems in Congress and the Vice President calling political opponents terrorists, NYT columnists calling them jihadists.  And at USA Today, it’s racist to oppose the President’s profligate spending, partisanship, or liberal agenda. 

Lovely people.
