I don’t know about you, but is a $438 billion deficit anything to brag about? In two years, that means we’ve overspent by $900 billion.  To me, this is like a wife beater saying, “Hey, I’ve gone from beating her 4 times a day, to 2 times a day.”

Still. Pretty. Awful.

Mr. Speaker, a real Republican would have been Tweeting about the deficit being ZERO DOLLARS.  But then again, being of the establishment variety, I guess destroying the country’s fiscal health at half of Obama’s early breakneck speed is good enough. Or as the establishment likes to say, “this is governing–good enough.”
