2001-2008: Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
2009-2016: Dissent is the highest form of racism.
2017-? (Probably): Dissent is the highest form of misogyny.

Libs. As Obama hasn't given a flying **** about shrinking Government, or reducing the deficit, or debt, since he took office, tell us what is different now ?
Might I suggest .... nothing ?
Obama's deficit projections, through 2020, are such that the lowest one (to include his first three now behind us) is higher that any single deficit by any prior President. And I'll bet you a dollar to a donut that none of those deficits will come under projection while this inept asshole is President, and it won't be close.
I like cinnamon sugar donuts.

In this thread, conservatives are upset about downsizing government.
Next up, conservatives complain that the government is too big.
What "fantasy cuts" do you mean? That's just something right wingers say because they don't want to acknowledge cuts that Democrats propose... And, yeah, of course it included tax hikes for the super rich. There are three fronts of deficit reduction- domestic spending, military spending and revenues. The Democrats are coming in so much higher because they're willing to tackle all three where the Republicans are only willing to address one of them.
