In the Bush years, things like federal funding and disaster relief were simply more generous to red states than blue states. Their mantra of "elections have consequences" justified this in conservative minds.

Of course, because they did it, they just assume that everyone does it, and are now complaining loudly that stimulus funding is disproportionately going to "blue states".

Naturally, this is complete fiction. Just another made-up political talking point to get "the base" all riled up.
