Shaggy_C: Muta: It's Official: Austerity Economics Doesn't Work

I'm confused. Didn't we just spend the last 10 years talking about how higher taxes would lead to an economic boom like the Clinton years? I must be behind on my Internet LiberalTM Talking Points of the Week. It gets hard to keep up when our positions on the issue change constantly to match the Republican's position but only halfway.

2000 Republicans: Tax cuts forever!
2000 Democrats: Tax cuts are bad and will ruin the economy.

2004 Republicans: Tax cuts forever!
2004 Democrats: The tax cuts are ruining our economy!

2008Economy ruined

2010 Republicans: Tax cuts forever!
2010 Democrats: Hmm, actually, now that you mention it, temporary tax cut extensions sound pretty great.

2012 Republicans: Tax cuts forever!
2012 Democrats: Tax cuts forever! (for 98% of people).


I used to think there was a such a thing as consistency or principles. Silly me.


You missed an event. The Dems are being consistent in applying sound economic principles to the economic conditions of the time.

It's called context.

I don't know about the 'cool' tag. A short article; Illusion of Momentum.

The GOP keeps trotting out the same three people saying they're OK with tax increases on the top 2%. They probably do it to give the illusion that they are willing to compromise and work with the President. In reality, republicans are just as obstructionistic as ever.

Ah. I see the GOP is media-testing new candidates and faces of the party. Too bad it's still an old white guy.

And, is he finally ready to admit to obstruction of justice in the cases of the Vitter whoremongering, or the Ensign staff-schtupping? No? Then, please, Sen. Coburn, proceed with that whole dying-in-a-fire thing.
