From the "Tax and Spend" vs. "Borrow and Spend" department:

Well, well, well...on the heels of the NatGuardGate revelations, all the Bush camp can whine about, aside from the typewriter the reports were written on (which IBM had been producing since 1941) is how much of "Tax and Spend" liberals Kerry and Edwards are.

Here's what a Bush operative in Maine said:

"It is clear to Mainers that the tax-and-spend policies of John Kerry and John Edwards will not grow the economy or stimulate job creation,"

Guess what? George W. Bush has created a whole new category of economic policy for himself. Let's call it "Borrow and Spend." After 8 years of disciplined spending and pay-as-you-go policies under Clinton, W has spent us back into deficits at an alarming rate.

I'd rather see intelligent taxing and spending instead of the current borrow and spend, damn the deficits policies embarked upon by the Bush/Cheney administration.

You know, Paul, Reagan proved that deficits don't matter. We won the mid-term elections, this is our due.
