Too bad they can't just cut the military like Clinton did

In the latest puff-piece designed to help re-elect Utah's highest ranking Democrat, Jerry Spangler of the Deseret News uncritically regurgitates propaganda from Rep. Jim Matheson's office.

Yeah, those "Blue Dog" Democrats sure would stop that out-of-control spending if they were in charge, yessiree. I guess that's why only one Democrat Senator dared vote for the Coburn Amendment, which would have defunded a single Republican pork barrel project in Alaska. And that's why another Democrat senator, Patty Murray, threatened to cut anyone else's pet projects if the amendment passed (links via Professor Reynolds).

Democrats are fiscally responsible? Excuse me while I guffaw.
