Update: No one is close, so far. While it really doesn’t matter who said it, it is relevant that the same person in October 2008 also said this (again, no Google searches allowed):
Of course Bush didn’t do it alone, for six years he had a Republican-controlled Congress that helped him do it. Because of both of them, the Republican Party has lost all credibility with the American voter as the party of fiscal conservatism. It will take a long time to earn that reputation back.
Thanks a lot, Mr. President. For nothing other than a boat load of debt.
The point is that some of the people now lashing out at the Tea Party movement and singing the praises of the old GOP, previously were harsh critics of the old GOP.
Update No. 2 – Case Closed 1 p.m. No winners, which is a good thing. This is a real person, a writer about politics at a prominent blog, but his/her identity is irrelevant. The fact is, it could have been almost any of the people you named (except for the ones suggested by Kent), be they Democrat or Republican. So what does that tell you about what really is going on in our political landscape, and why people are so angry at the political class?
(Now I’ve started getting the right answer in comments, as people take to Google. But I’m not printing the person’s name since the point of the post was the hypocrisy and attitude, not the person.)
