E.J. Dionne Jr. hit a home run with his Feb. 17 op-ed, "A deficit game for chumps," citing the hypocrisy of Republican deficit hawks who are the architects of the national debt. Would someone remind the next person heard complaining of President Obama's deficit that we haven't paid off those that President Ronald Reagan accumulated?
