American Idiot: Deficit Crusader

(h/t Andrew Sullivan’s Daily Dish)


But Obama’s the one screwing over our grandchildren.

Sarah Palin says President Obama’s proposed 2011 budget is “immoral” because it increases the national debt, which she called “generational theft.”

Palin told the national “tea party” convention Saturday that America’s national debt, which is held largely by other nations, “makes us less free” and “should tick us off.”

By the way, the largest state debt-to-GDP-ration? Former half-governor Palin’s Alaska.

When the former vice presidential candidate resigned as governor of Alaska in the summer of 2009, she left the state with a 70 percent debt-to-GDP ratio — the highest state debt burden in the United States.
