The Madness of Barack Obama or, How Can a GOP Landslide "Return" Us to Failed Policies of the Past if They've Never Really Left?

|

President Obama says, "The definition of madness is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results." He's on the campaign trail warning voters about "returning to the very same policies that failed us during the last decade."

If he's talking about bailouts, ineffective stimulus packages, and massive government spending, then we won't be returning to them because we've never left in the first place. The continuities between George W. Bush and Barack Obama and their parties are far more disturbing than the differences.
