In the run-up to the 2010 mid-term elections, Democrats have found a new slogan they hope will keep them in office. They, according to DNC Chairman Tim Kaine, are branding themselves the “party of results.” Here is a sample of the new sales pitch.
[picapp align=”left” wrap=”true” link=”term=tim+kaine&iid=3471921″ src=”2/9/7/5/48.JPG?adImageId=12707187&imageId=3471921″ width=”125″ height=”182″ /] Going further to lay on the meaningless political rhetoric, he claimed that “Americans will reward results rather than obstruction.” What results, exactly? Perhaps the recession that nearly became a depression (according to many politicians), bailouts, stimulus, health-care “reform” and a host of other budget-busting measures.
In short, the last four years of the “results party” in power has led to an expansion of our debt. All of this either means future inflation, future increased taxes or a combination of the two in order to decrease that debt — assuming politicians will eventually actually care about reducing the debt.
To be fair, runaway spending is not the fault of one party. But with political rhetoric as empty as this, voters who fall for it will have no one but themselves to blame for these “results.”
