WHICH MEANS REAGAN WAS TWICE AS BAD AS BUSH? (via John Thacker)

US budget deficit shrinks in 2005 (BBC, 10/18/05)

The US budget deficit shrank to $319bn (£180bn) last year as better economic conditions boosted tax revenues. [...]

The 2005 fiscal year deficit amounted to 2.6% of GDP, below the 3.6% recorded in 2004 and the post World War Two high of 6% in 1983.


No wonder all the Reaganauts are coming out against W, he really does make them look awful even before you consider their tax hikes.

Plame! Libby! We have an agenda and we're sticking to it.

Yes, but what I've always heard from the great Reagan defenders, like Peter Robinson at NRO, is that Reagan never signed a spending bill or a tax hike without giving a great speech about how bad it was that was doing so.

Pay no attention to the economy, it's all a Rovian trick! Rove is Fitz's Mr. "A" (or perhaps Cheney is).
