Are You Kidding Me?

The President's irrelevant budget submission to the Congress for fiscal year 2012 is a plan to increase the national debt another $13 trillion over the next ten years, almost doubling its current size. So much for this from the state of the union address:
We need to take responsibility for our deficit and reform our government. That's how our people will prosper. That's how we'll win the future. (Applause.) And tonight, I'd like to talk about how we get there.
You used to have to search years back to find youtube video of Obama contradicting himself, this must be a new record, less than a month.

The real issue is the entitlement spending; which we still don't have the stomach to touch. I doubt that the Republican budget will reduce the size of the debt either, although there should be hell to pay if it doesn't attack it far more aggressively than Obama. The real battle lines are over finishing out the current fiscal year and the debt ceiling. The Republicans should be able to get some legislative movement in their direction if they are willing to use the debt ceiling as a negotiating tool. Let's see if our guy is up to the risk and the challenge.


  1. what's really neat is the stark contrasts of the headlines of WaPo and the WaTa.

  2. just another sign DC elites think American's are morons.
