Delong deficit quote…

The always excellent Brad Delong (Deling?) writes regarding those supporting Bush’s policies:

“I believe [censored] was a deserter in that war–a supporter of George W. Bush, and of his unfunded Medicare Part D expansion, and of his wars of choice. So I don’t think he has standing to make the small government argument–some people do, but he does not.”

I’ve left off the target of his bane, because the point remains for all who supported Bush: stop pretending to be “deficit hawks” – you gave up that right long ago.

UPDATE:

And don’t get me started on their desire to continue the Bush era tax cuts. Deficit Hawks my ass.
