If you've paid any attention to the media talking points surrounding the European Financial Crisis and why it shows that conservatives are absolutely, positively, undeniably and reliably unfit to govern, then you know that one of their favorite attack lines is that an austerity regime in America would turn America into Greece 2.0. "The Greeks tried it, and look at them," the argument goes.
Glenn Beck, in his show today, took this extremely silly attack line apart while pointing out the systemic problems that are dragging Europe toward collapse. According to Glenn, the problem with European austerity isn't that spending has been cut, it's that spending has stayed steady while taxes have increased dramatically. Worse, unions and other left wing interest groups have shut down business completely in countries like Greece.
"You heard the President of the United States say this weekend that Germany has got to continue to bail these guys out. Would you do it?!" Glenn asked.
