How soon they forget!
After eight years of Republican free market economics, fourteen if you count the GOP takeover of Congress, it should come as no surprise that many conservatives are trying to pretend the high jobless rate and current great depression never happened. It should also come as no surprise that Fox News printed these surreal accounts by the GOP's "great white hopes":
Gov. Charlie Crist called President Barack Obama's proposed health care overhaul "cockamamie."
"The prosperity we enjoy as a country is not because of government," he added. "It's because of free enterprise, and entrepreneurship and hard work."
Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty (said), "Giving the Democrats control and responsibility for our money is like letting Michael Vick watch your dog for the weekend."
