About Face

Reading today's op-ed this morning from Krugman, made me wonder at what moment did the GOP decide that government was the solution to economic problems?

Is it just because the problems cannot be ignored that the Republicans have turned their attention away from the severely deluded Reagan line that 'government' is the problem?  Because it seems to me that they now are using government as an instrument -- a tool to attempt to repair the consequences of deregulation. 

And when one considers the social policies of the GOP, they have thought for quite some time that government is a means to advance their agenda on so-called 'family values.'

So, which is it Republicans?  Because it is hypocritical to say one thing and do another.
