Who's Guarding The Purse?

When I read stuff like this, it continually amazes me how people actually think Bush and the Repugs are bona fide conservatives.

From the "Air America" web site:

Five years into his administration, the president has yet to exercise a single veto, a record unprecedented in modern history. With no presidential restraint, Congress has gone on a record binge of profligate spending, raising concerns about the traditional system of checks and balances.
And more...

According to a recent article in The New York Times, the rise in the average price of gasoline last week was the largest since records have been kept. The national average of regular unleaded stood at $2.55 yesterday, and most analysts expect the cost of fuel will continue to rise through Labor Day.
If anyone ever tells me that the Repugs are the "party of fiscal conservatism" again, I'm going to have a great big belly laugh right in their faces.
