Well yeah they've both made mistakes. Huge ones. But what is this thread really about?
Justification for spending because the other guys did it?
That's what it looks like to me. Or is this a hypocrite thread? Both parties are hypocrites so that wouldn't be a surprise.
I could care less about which "side" did the most wrongs...they both put us in the position we are in today.
They both put us in the 53 trillion dollar hole that we are looking at.
The only solution both "sides" have for the economy is more spending which only adds to the ridiculously huge debt we have.
Yet nothing changes...same garbage. Same spending by both parties...they only differ on how to spend taxpayer money.
How can you make the "socialist" or "overspending" argument when you have nothing really to show for it on yourside.
I didnt say that david, but typical of you fellas to once again prove that when their no real argument yourside, you just make up things on the spot
Where was I hypocrite? I never justified the mishandling from previous democrat administrations, why do you feel the need to lie about what I said?
Good for you david, why dont you show us from now on.
And most of us are to blame for voting these idiots in. Where were you in 2000 David? How about 88'? 76'?
doesnt necessarily mean the world will end in 4years. The best thing for us to do is argue the issues and how we, not just the government, are ganna solve it... not just tag speculation on some administration we dont personally like... especially when we dont have history to back us up.

What side do you think I'm on?
Because i'm critical of what our government does?
What if i told you I was a Democrat? Would that make you look at me differently?
Do you think i'm just critical of Democrats?
Look at your OP. Your bias bleeds through out the whole thing.
It's in almost every single post i read of yours. For whatever reason you think that anyone who disagrees with you is anti-democrat.
You deliberately made this thread in the first place to make an argument
Did it ever strike you that maybe some of them think both Rep/Dem are full of BS?
I see the type of person you are. You are the "If you aren't with me, then you're against me' type.
I hear time and time again as to how economically "responsible" conservative candidates are and as to how economically irrisponsible those "darn socialist liberals" are... Its the "spend spend spend" tag that liberals are labelled with every single. Democrats have had their fairshare of government mishandling however the bragging rightwing need to get a reality check for the past 40 years. So the question is, does history back this claim from conservatives? let have a look back over a period of 40 years.
We need to stop playing the "left versus right" game, and understand that the two party system is a sham, a diversion, a way to keep the public engaged in a phony "us versus them" game, while TPTB raid the cookie jar
