What part of beneath contempt ...

The Times reports that, at the so-called Tea Party convention:

Palin called the deficit in President Obama's 2011 budget "immoral" and added that because it increases the national debt, it amounted to "generational theft."

This is so disgustingly disingenuous as to be, like all PTR verbiage, beneath contempt. Most of the deficit is a direct result of Bush economic policies. The tax cuts for the rich already had led to a trillion dollar deficit early on in his second term. Most of the rest resulted from his de-regulation policies which created the financial crisis that Obama inherited.

I never heard one peep of complaint from the PTR about the burden on future generations of the Bush deficits.

But why go on? What part of beneath contempt don't we understand?
