Bobo cries

Blame the voters!
    Oh, yes, there's one more group to be criticized: the American voters. For the past 30 years, Americans have wanted high entitlement spending and low taxes. From the looks of things today, they - or more precisely their children - are going to live with the consequences.
Just to review: It was Bush and the Republicans who took record surpluses and turned them into record deficits (as John Kerry would say) with a little help from Saint Alan.

If Republicans really wanted to re-invent themselves as welfare state reformers they'd pull their heads out of the sand and start grappling with real problems - like funding for Medicare and Medicaid - instead of making up problems where they don't exist and then blaiming Democrats and the voters for not wanting to fix them.
