    I saw it this morning, didn't hear Rush talk about it specifically.

    Rush had called me, and I gave him the idea.

    I see the lowering of expectations continues...

    Of course, what you don't hear is that, with the Dems in complete control of the process, there's no reason whatsoever the FY2010-2015 budgets cannot have $0 in deficits.

    But then, the Dems will come up with plenty of ways to excuse it, so...
    So what happens when our interest payments consume the entire budget? Do we pay for an imaginary government?

    Don't ask ME, ask The Obama.

    He and the Dems can pass any budget they want. If there is a $1T deficit, its because they -choose- for there to be a $1T deficit.

    It was a focal point of his opening monologue.

    It's been hit and miss lately.

    Well, uh, this quote proves that you're statement that conservatives were "mum" is false. At least this one conservative was not "mum," he merely articulated an argument about deficits under Reagan.

    So, seriously, don't you whine when someone generalizes from the action or behavior of a single person?

    Huh?

    How is that at all a relevant response to the OP?

    Answer: it has no relevance.

    Carry on.

    Give him a break.
    After all, when you have no effective argument, you're forced to misdirect and obfuscate.
