Republicans contributed to downfall of the economy after they took office and stopped being fiscally conservative. So can we stop using the terms Republican and conservative as if they are still interchangeable?
Um, yes, coming into office and implementing every single tenet of conservative philosophy without need of one veto is somehow "stopped being conservative." Leave the lying/fact-skipping speeches to Romney and other nutheads. Conservative Repubs had control. They implemented their agenda. And the reality is "conservative" does not mean fiscally responsible, it means fiscally delusional - it means borrow and hand all the money to a few rich people, and pretend that helps everyone. That's the agenda. These are the results.
Now back to conservatives who pretend conservatism is not conservatism...
