The author of Sunday's letter "Tea party writers get it wrong" claims to have the facts on his side while blaming Bush and the Republican-controlled House and Senate for the nation's debt and economic woes. Ever heard of Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid? Are you aware that Congress, not the president, has the responsibility of creating the annual budget? (Granted, the Democrat-controlled Senate has shirked this duty for over 900 days.) While blaming Bush for the wars, did you remember that notable leftists Hillary Clinton and John Kerry, along with a majority in Congress, voted in favor of invading Iraq? (Granted, Kerry changed his mind after the troops were deployed.) Yes, indeed, facts are interesting, aren't they?
