David Frum came on 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. with David Shuster and took the GOP to task for their theatrics in opposition to the stimulus bill. Apparently Frum isn't too impressed with the hissy fits he's seen them throwing on the House and Senate floors. But here's the trouble with his argument. What does Frum think are the very serious solutions that the GOP should be offering as their substantive policy solutions to our economic woes? More tax cuts. Um..I think they did offer that up David, and got some of them in the bill and as Ian Welsh over at Firedoglake notes, those tax cuts are not what we need to get us out of this hole we're in.

A Stimulus Bill With 40% Tax Cuts Won't Do the Job

What's brain dead is doing the same thing over and over again and thinking you're going to get a different outcome. It does warm my heart a bit to see these guys eating their own and someone actually calling out the Republicans in the Senate and the House for acting like drama queens.

Can you help us out?
