Former House rep J.D. Hayworth was on Hardball last evening blaming George Soros and Chuck Schumer for the economic collapse.
Absurd! Soros and Schumer played their roles, but it took a lot of greedy people many years (centuries - see post below) to cause the world's pyramid scheme of worthless paper money to show its true (blank) face.
Now I don't know much of Hayworth's career in Congress (R-AZ; 1995 - 2007), but I don't remember his doing anything worthwhile about the monetary situation while there, do you? He played his role, too.
There was a forgery incident in 1996 (his signature forged by staff on a campaign affadavit - he fired the culprits, kept himself) but other than the fact that he was a TV sportscaster and radio journalist prior to coming to Capitol Hill, I know only what I read of Hayworth on Wikipedia.
So for some reason GOP strategists seem to have called on Hayworth to stem the tide against the many criticisms of 8 years of Republican overspend by arguing on Hardball.
This is the kind of political damage control that always reminds me of the Sabian Symbol for America's natal Jupiter, planet of expansion, money, ideals, and optimism:
'6 Cancer': "Gamebirds Feathering Their Nests"...METICULOUSNESS...
positive: high intelligence and skill in enlisting the potentials of experience for the service of self;
negative/unconscious/shadow side: unnecessary concern over everyday security. (The Sabian Symbols in Astrology, Marc Edmund Jones.)
And here's an excerpt on '6Can' from Lynda Hill's book 360 Degress of the Zodiac: making yourself comfortable and right at home; raising money; preparation; laying the groundwork for those to come; creating a base to feel safe; taking over other people's territory (that we did.)
