Wake up: Dems are Repubs on steroids wrt deficit

At some point this August (or later), you might hear somebody ask you - probably with at least a sniff in their voice; possibly with an outright sneer - why it is that all of a sudden conservatives/Republicans now are worried about deficits. What were we, asleep?

Not particularly, of course - nonetheless, I think that this (alas, anonymous) comment about the Columbus Tea Party (H/T: Instapundit) pretty much covers the specific objection:

They might have been asleep for the last 8 years, but when you triple the national debt in 6 months with political handouts, calling it stimulus, it tends to wake people up.

This Heritage graphic shows this graphically
