Many Republican truths have confused me over the years because of their surreal head scratching logic. The one I one I found fairly laughable had to do with the failed liberal social agenda. FDR’s New Deal and President Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society have pretty much crashed and burned.
What’s that? You didn't know the liberals were at fault? Republicans have known this for years, despite the fact that over time, both political parties have had control of the federal and state agendas. Like the Bush administration has said many times, “it’s complicated.”
So how can anyone blame liberals for the failure when conservatives have repealed and under fund social programs out of existence? They just can.
Recently, Sen. McCain visited Inez, Ky., the place President Johnson declared war on poverty.
McCain said "I wouldn't be back here today if government had fulfilled the promise that Lyndon Johnson made 44 years ago."
Thank god the Republicans have brought back their finely tuned sense of economic sanity. You can take some comfort in knowing that poverty is just a rough patch to wait out until things turn around.
You can wait can’t you?
