Yes, this is a creatively edited video from ThinkProgress, but there’s a grain of truth here. Republicans can’t name any spending they want to cut (again and again):
Off the top of my head here, but maybe they can start with scaling back the size of our ridiculous military spending and the MASSIVE amounts we’re waste on overseas occupations and bases (happy 9th birthday, Afghanistan clusterfuck). To me, that would really be a sign of change from the GOP I could believe in. But I’m not holding my breath.
The Democrats are the party in power and thus deserve the majority of the scrutiny and chastising right now, but there’s a glimmer of hope that folks are wary of the GOP’s comeback aspirations. If those guys haven’t learned anything in their political time-out and end up betraying the people (again), I suspect the next anti-establishment mass movement will end up making the Tea Party look like little more than a bunch of whining old slackers on scooters with misspelled signs and Gadsden flags.
