Remember when the GOP was touting its laughable "Young Guns"?
Guess who was one of them.

Why is this even news worthy?

We have GOP members of Congress - on tape - saying just awful things about the President. Not just critical, but awful.

And now they support him. In full.

Just more embarrassment for the GOP. But they don't care, nor their supports for the most part.

Normalization. With more to come.

Both sides are hypocritical on the debt and deficit.

What's the big deal?

"Both sides are hypocritical on the debt and deficit."

Probably false. Clinton balanced the budget and Obama would have too if he hadn't had to clean up the horrible mess Bush left behind.
Democratic candidates running today do offer more spending on programs but they also talk about how to pay for it, it's just the Republicans don't like the way we intend to pay for it.

#4 Clinton balanced the budget with a Republican-controlled House. The House controls the purse-strings.

The only dynamic that ever results in any spending constraints is a Republican-controlled House with a Democrat President.

Fat Nixon is shoveling handfuls of sugar into a diabetic economy.

It is not going to end well.

There is no room to cut interest rates or pass an effective stimulus bill.

The GOP will cry for more tax cuts for the top and austerity budgets just like they did in 2009.

"Deficits don't matter", "dick" Cheney 2003.
The repubs only care about deficits as a way to cut entitlements and other programs they loathe.
They never bring up deficits in matters of WAR. We always have money to kill brown people.
The military will be our undoing as a people. We need to beat swords into plowshares.

If we CUT the military budget by 70% we could have the green new deal and "save" humanity from global warming. We could eliminate air travel and build high speed electric rail instead. The power grid could be based on renewables instead of fossil fuels that heat up our world.
AOC laid all this out already,we should all get behind her vision.

Clinton balanced the budget

Every single repug voted against the legislation that allowed Clinton to balance the budget. What a surprise.

No problem.

Just stay off our roads and stop using our resources.

In fact, why are you even here? There are plenty of other countries. Maybe they won't tax you.

Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

That's because a Republican in the White House holds a gun to head of the poor/middle working class and says increase military spending or I'm pulling the trigger on huge spending cuts to make life miserable for them.

The door's been waiting 3.5 years to hit Alex Baldwin, Barbara Streisand, Whoopi Goldberg, Miley Cyrus, Cher, and a couple of dozen more airheads that you look up to and define the democrats. Get that queue through the doorway before you worry about Mackris.

Why do we need a huge military anyway? Can some one explain please.All the military does is kill people and break things. Why do we need to spend SO MUCH ON THAT?

Yes, and when it's a Republican-controlled House with a Republican President, it's spending like there's no tomorrow, or at least until there's a Democrat in the White House again, then we'll 'get religion' and slash spending to the bone.

That's not including the $21 trillion dollars they "lost".... the government only seems to be about thievery now.. probably why they gave up building infrastructure.. no future here

Blah blah blah. Aren't you special?

Texas has wanted out ever since that black President. The door has been waiting for your hero Dimbulb to leave since 2010 when he promised he would if America got them some Obamacare.

Fortunately we got some of that sweet sweet health care so Gawd is politely showing him the way out. Isn't that good old karma sweet some times??
