Idiots, because their preferred policies do real damage to our economy (see: Depression, Great; S&L Crisis; 2008 Financial Collapse), and I just don't know that they are smart enough to understand cause and effect (well beyond the immediate I vote for big business, they give me sweet campaign cash and cushy job once I leave my current gig):
Goodness knows we wouldn't want to actually know what's going on in the derivatives market. Might step on some Galtian's toes, were we able to enforce regulations that rein in rampant speculation, and we cannot have that.
Evil idiots because, well, just read for yourself:
Hmmmmmm. I wonder what the children in the "urban areas" being cut from meal programs, and the inner-city men "not even thinking about working or learning the value and the culture of work" that Paul Ryan warned us about have in common (at least in the eyes of the GOP).
They aren't even trying to hide the racism anymore. I guess their base demands it these days, but the rest of us should be rightly calling them out on this garbage. It is despicable. It is the Republican Party. And you do not get to think of yourself as a middle-of-the-road centrist if you vote to enable these people. The Eisenhower/Rockefeller/Romney Sr. Republican party of your imagination no longer exists, and pretending otherwise just aids and abets the reactionaries who are truly at the helm.
