The gall of Republicans. In the Meet The Press interview Brian played a clip of, the person said they're going to balance the budget and "live within our means." The Republicans are the ones that blew up the debt. I hope Democrats hit back hard on these lies.

Interesting little slip there, Brian, when you called said the "Democrat Party," then corrected to "Democratic." What happened there?

(And have you explored the penchant of some conservatives to refer to the "Democrat" instead of "Democratic."? Interesting linguistic twist.)

My take: the Democrats are afraid of the Republicans and the Republicans are terrified of the Tea Party. So, everyone will say what they think someone else wants to hear.
