Notice that not a single one of the Republicans, whose only policy is to be against government spending and taxes, could think of single cut they would makd in federal spending. They all equivocated, dissembled, and avoided the question when asked what programs they would cut. Not a single one of them would come right out and say that they would cut any program, while at the same time going to Tea Parties and ranting against government spending.

That's hypocrisy.

Republican Governor of Texas, Rick Perry, talks fondly of Texas seceding from the United States, which would put an end to the more than $34 billion pouring into Tarrant County from the federal government and bring an end to all of the institutions mentioned above, and put hundreds of thousands of people out of work. He said recently, "Washington is not trending in the right direction. We need to start pushing the pendulum back in the other direction."

He's saying things like this while happily taking in the $34 billion from the federal government that the pendulum is pushing to him for just Tarrant County alone, not counting the other 253 counties in Texas.

Of the Texas state budget of $167.8 billion, 3l.1% is from the federal government. That's $52.2 billion that Perry takes and spends and doesn't mention it, all the while saying he wants the federal government out of Texas.

That's world class hypocrisy.
