    •  Yes, because the size of the federal (0+ / 0-)

      government is just what it was 200 years ago. Are you aware that since 1901 the federal budget has grown by a factor of 8,000?

      •  2008, then (0+ / 0-)

        seemed to be ok then. And that was only four years ago, when  the federal government was only one thousand times smaller than it is now :)
        Besides, as per an earlier comment, the Romney campaign team was essentially the same as the transition team. they were awfully busy trying to convince us all the Moneybags had a chance to win this thing. They weren't spending their time vetting potential appointments or engaging in covert diplomacy with the Syrian resistance.
