The Republican Lemon Pledge for America includes restarting the "cold war." That's just one of the startling promises the Republican Party is offering angry anti-government voters. It seems the folks responsible for the Great Recession chose to forget that they and their policies of borrowing and spending caused the great wave of unemployment and rise in poverty. Proof?
"The land of opportunity has become the land of shrinking prosperity ... Our government has failed us," Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California declared. "We will take back our country. We will restore for a better future. This is our pledge to you."But fully funding the outrageously expensive Star Wars missile defense system is...nuts. Chris Matthews is rightly amazed.
