Tuesday Linfest: Dems Promise To Restrain Spending :)

Happy Tuesday. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, spending time with friends and family, giving that perfect gift, reflecting on what the day meant, and, for our Left side buddies, a day of, hopefully, less seething.

Now, New Years is coming up on us fast, and the Demos are already making their resolutions, which, like all others, they will learn to break

Determined to banish their old tax-and-spend image, Democrats want to shrink the federal deficit, preserve tax cuts for the middle class and challenge the president to raise money for the Iraq war when they take control of Congress next week. But it won't be easy.

The incoming Democratic chairmen of the House and Senate Budget committees said they plan to honor a campaign promise to devote billions of additional dollars a year to homeland security and education. And they reiterated a commitment not to cut off funding for U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

However, everyone knows better, as do the Democrats, who are already looking for ways to backtrack blaming Iraq, the military, Intelligence, tax cuts, and Bush. Yet, they fail to see that revenues are up because of the tax cuts.

"In terms of practical politics, the reality is this: We have to be on good behavior so we have a chance to win the presidency," said Rep. Jim Cooper (D-Tenn.), a leader of the Blue Dog Coalition, a group of conservative House Democrats whose ranks swelled to 44 in the November elections. "We have a chance now of having a new Democratic Party that supports the middle class and has middle-class priorities at heart."

Got that? They have to act like the class troublemaker, who knows that he/she will not go on the field trip if he/she doesn't cool it for a little while. Also, Cooper has admitted that the Democrats have never really gave a shat about the Middle Class, and now have to fake it. Typical, and unsurprising.
