Not As They Do: Conservatives and the Deficit, Pt. 2

Terrance Heath

Sarah Palin’s keynote speech was quite a hit at this weekend’s Tea Party convention. She even took a shot at pinning responsibility for the deficit on the Obama administration.

“The Obama-Pelosi-Reid agenda will leave us less secure, more in debt and under the thumb of big government,” she added, saying voters all over the country are sending a message that they want change in Washington.

She harkened Obama’s famous campaign slogan, asking, “How’s that hope-y, change-y stuff working out for you?”

It’s too bad Palin didn’t have proper notes on hand, as she did for the Q & A after her speech. Then again, the message that it was actually the Bush administration that left us more in debt and less secure, wouldn’t go over well with her audience.

Besides, she probably couldn’t fit it all on her palm.

Nonetheless, should the former governor address the subject again, here’s a quick crash course that might help her keep her facts straight.
