Busted the boggle-o-meter again. March 8, 2006

Posted by ultor in politics.

Trent Lott this time, speaking on the floor of the US Senate:

“What is it we are not going to give people for free? Is there any limit? Is there any limit to the amount of money?? asked Lott, adding snidely “I thought we were having global warming.?


John Ensign of Nevada actually tried to out-vicious Lott:

“There are those of us who believe that deficits are real. They are absolutely real,? said Ensign. “People get up and talk about them all the time. But when it comes right down to whether you are willing to make tough choices instead of just increasing the spending and passing that debt on to the next generation, they aren’t willing to offer other spending cuts so that we are not increasing the deficit.?

Ummm…yeah. How any Republican can pretend that they’re willing to make “tough choices” on the deficit at this point is well beyond me.
