Hamilton County GOP: Democrat(ic) Money Burn: Obama Style?

Breadcrumb Navigation

It seems current Hamilton County Republican Party Chairman and former Hamilton County Judge Alex M. Triantafilou has a short memory these days:

The current discussion in Washington to spend over $800 billion that we borrow from China ought to scare the hell out of every American. Is it the right thing to do to “bring back this economy”? I’m not the guy to make that call. But, I am a citizen that is about to watch liberal Democrats do what they love to do: spend lavishly and explode the size of government. I just can’t believe that is what the American people meant when they voted for “change.” It looks a whole lot like more-of-the-same.

Why all the sudden outcry? Was it not the Republicans who got us into this mess? Plus, is not the deficit – now, as it stands before President-elect Barack Obama takes office – the highest its been in decades? And isn’t it – now, as it stands before President-elect Barack Obama takes office – predicted to go even higher than it has ever gone in the history of the United States, to the tune of more than $3.1 trillion dollars of national debt?

Alex, I think you’re a swell guy. Pretty smart, too. But, geebus, when will their ever be an admission that it was Republican leadership that got us into this mess? Denial is not Step One in admitting you’ve got a problem. And this ain’t the time for spin, friend.
