Alan Greenspan

Alan Greenspan said in his new book what many of us fiscal conservatives have been saying for a long time (and I've posted about many times here), that the Republicans got what they deserved in the last election.

The most disgusting of the performances was the parade of Congressmen and Senators on the conservative talk shows before the election whining about how much worse it could be if the Democrats were in power. Well, maybe so, but we didn't work so hard for so many years to get conservatives elected and a Republican majority in both the Senate and the House, and a Republican President, to see spending soar.

In my vocabulary today, it is no longer spending like a drunk sailor, it is spending like a Congressman.....

10,000 earmarks on the highway bill. Not a single veto.

We traded a Democratic administration with sorry personal discipline but good fiscal discpline, for a Republican administration with excellent personal discipline, but fiscal profligacy.

Mr. Greenspan: you are completely right.
