… but subtlety has never been their strong suit:

I deplore eliminationist rhetoric no matter whom it comes from.

At the same time, it is worth noting that the economic policies of austerity enacted in Ireland have not helped that nation’s economy, which just a few years ago was the envy of the world. Indeed, they have had precisely the opposite effect. And yet all the Responsible People here in the U.S. want us to do the same thing Ireland did.
