Talk is Cheap

Chuck Hagel, who is running for the 2008 Republican Presidential Nomination, had this to say about the deficits that the Bush White House and GOP-controlled Congress of happily racked up these past few years: "That's not the Republican Party I joined. I think we're coming loose from our moorings."
That, you know, might be true. It's one thing to say that at a "Politics and Eggs" breakfast in the Granite State. It's quite another thing to put taxpayer dollars where is mouth is, which Hagel was terminally unwilling to do last week when he voted to pass the budget and increase the federal deficit by several hundred billion dollars in upcoming years.
