Deficit spending was never a problem for GOP administrations - Cheney:  Reagan proved that deficits don't matter. We won the mid-term elections, this is our due.

It was only ever a stick for Republicans and Democratic centrists to beat libruls with.

This true.

Both parties have enjoyed deficit without impugnity (by the press) until Budget Control Act of 2011.

Remember that? heh heh heh. And the Super Select Committee "sequestering" this program and that program, the "ceiling" and the "suspensions". O, the confusion this caused!

That's all behind the liberal liberals and the conservative liberals now.
