19. Intended Consequences...
1) Republicans spend like crazy, driving the nation into debt.

2) Republicans invariably screw up and get booted out of office.

3) Democrat takes office.

4) Democrat looks at the budget and screams, "HOLY SHIT! We gotta pay this off before the interest kills us!"

5) Democrat raises taxes.

6) Republicans immediately take to the air to condemn yet another "tax and spend liberal", who "raised taxes to pay for social programs."

7) Media outlets jump on the buzzword, which spreads like a virus through the homes of centrist and right wing Americans across the country.

8) People turn on the Democrats and elect another Republican disaster for another eight years.

9) Sensible Democrats take a look at said Republican's disastrous proposals, knowing full well they are, in fact, disastrous, and refuse to jump on board.

10) Opportunistic Republicans seize the day yet again, and point fingers at the Democrats for being "partisan".

After all, when Bush doesn't budge, regardless of the mountains of factual evidence which proves his "opinions" groundless, he is "STICKING TO HIS GUNS". Whenever the Democrats don't do exactly what the Republicans want them to do, they are being "partisan".
