Something to remember

"The strongest section of the President's speech was a history lesson. We didn't have a significant deficit problem 10 years ago. We had a budget surplus. We did have the long-term question of how to pay for the baby boomers' old-age benefits, but that was, and is, a manageable problem. The 'crisis' we face was visited upon us by the very people [Republicans] now screaming loudest about the budget deficit." (Joe Klein, Time, "Mr. Prudent: Obama Preaches Deficit Sanity")
