     Rather than seeking unbiased opinions on what to do about the economic crisis, Republicans were only interested in opinions that disagreed with President Obama’s solution:

 

·        “ATTENTION ECONOMISTS: ARE YOU A STIMULUS SPENDING SKEPTIC? ...House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) is compiling a list of credentialed American economists who would like to add their voices to the list of stimulus spending skeptics.”--from the Office of the House Republican Leader website.

     No wonder they are called “The Party of No”.

 

 (Authors note: I use the words Republican and Conservative interchangeably--since the Republican Party became a tool of its right-wing conservatives.)

 

******

 

     Conservative brains also demonstrate a limited ability to recognize hypocrisy.

 

     ThinkProgress.com compiled a list of 23 Republicans and one Blue-dog Democrat, who voted against President Obama’s economic recovery package, then went home and bragged to their constituents about the benefits they will receive as a result of the legislation.

 

·        “The Republicans’ sudden reversion to the solemn frugality of their forebears would be amusing were it not so dangerous. Having established a record over the past decade or so as the wildest wastrels in the nation’s history, they now present themselves as straight-laced accountants who simply cannot abide a misspent dime.”-- Joe Conason, journalist, 1/8/09
