Judd Gregg, Spinmeister

Check out this comment by Judd Gregg from today’s Wall Street Journal article on the massive deficits the Congressional Budget Office says our government will run for the next decade.

“These numbers are just staggering, and it appears that the sky is the limit for this tax-spend-and-borrow Democratic majority,” Sen. Judd Gregg (R., N.H.), the senior Republican on the budget panel said. “Despite all of the dire news about our mountain of debt, the spending spree continues, and only lip service is being paid to the issue of debt reduction.”

Yes, the numbers are staggering. But so is his disconnect from reality. Gregg was there during the tax-cut-spend-and-borrow years of the Republican majority. He can’t seriously forget that Bush inherited surpluses and wound up with (then) record deficits. Is Gregg trying to make up for accepting the job as Obama’s Commerce Secretary?
