The GOP, 2000-2008: "Deficits don't matter."
The GOP, during the House campaign, 2010: "Only Jobs matter."
The GOP, after the election to the present: "Jobs don't matter. Only deficits matter. And abortion." 

Isn't that interesting?

At least it has a precedent: it's what Hoover preached. Lessee, what was the outcome of that?

The Great Depression.

And then again in 1938, when FDR drank the Kool-Aid, and the nation sagged back into it.

Of course in the Republicans' Looking Glass World Hoover was defeating the Great Depression and FDR created it. Orwell would have loved these guys.
