Speaking in Commerce Monday, Rep. Paul Broun said the Republican party is the “Party of ‘know,’” a response to criticism labeling the GOP “the party of ‘no’” for its opposition to health care reform.
“We know how to lower your cost of health care — put you in charge of making decisions, along with your doctor,” Broun said. “We know how to solve this energy crisis and make America energy independent. We know how to stimulate the economy and that’s by getting dollars back into the hands of small business so that they can buy inventory and hire new people and put the country back on track economically ... we know how to get the government out of your hair, so you can run your business, run your family without all the government intrusion.”
Really? Then why didn’t the GOP demonstrate that know-how the last eight years?

And why didn't the Clinton administration do it during their 8 years and why didn't....
This is exactly our problem. We never look forward for answers, we look backwards for blame. One year later, it’s sickening to hear references to the Bush administration whenever there is a hard problem to solve.
The democrats are now in control of the White House and Congress. They seem to be blowing it – who can we point at now?
