With pitchforks, if need be.

Steve Benen hits the nail:

When it comes to economic policy, now would be an excellent time for the Republican Party to enjoy a little quiet time. We’re talking about a party that insisted that Bill Clinton’s economic policies would be a complete disaster, and then rallied enthusiastically behind George W. Bush’s economic agenda. In recent weeks, these same lawmakers have been questioning FDR, while embracing Hoover.

Given all of this, why the Republican Party believes it has credibility on economic policies is a mystery. After getting everything spectacularly wrong for years, we still hear McConnell, Boehner, & Co. sounding downright Cartman-like, demanding, “You will respect my authority!”
