The Hypocritical Lies of the Right-Wing Nutbags

So many ways to say the same basic thing about these protests:

If Fox News, Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh were truly opposed to expanded government power, where were they when George Bush and Dick Cheney were expanding federal power in virtually every realm, driving up the national debt to unprecedented proportions, destroying middle-class economic security in order to benefit the wealthiest, and generally ensuring government intrusion into every aspect of people’s lives?  They were supporting it and cheering it on.  That’s what gives the lie to their pretense of “small-government” rhetoric.
