Obama; Republicans offer criticism, but no plan.

I find the Republican position on the stimulus package quite breathtaking. They are quick to point out the deficits that are being run up whilst, totally and utterly ignoring the fact that the financial crisis which made this necessary happened on their watch.

Nor do they appear to have any solution of their own, preferring simply to carp from the sidelines about a fiscal responsibility which they did not display when they were in office.

Obama is right to point out that they have "a short memory" as he is inheriting a $1.3 trillion annual deficit from them.
