I hope this link doesn't go away. However, I will make my comments relevant in case the link expires out.
This is an article about how Obama is put his little pork barrel spending Stimulus bill into fruition and yet he still states he's going to cut the budget. Is he for real? He wants to confront the crisis without confronting how we got to it.
The fact that some many people voted for this man is sheer and utter proof that the nation is stupid and uneducated. Spending another $787 billion dollars is *NOT* the way to reduce a deficit. He states, "We cannot simply spend as we please and defer the consequences." Oh, yeah? It seems as though that is what you are doing with this stimulus bill. He wants to shun, "casual dishonesty of hiding irresponsible spending with clever accounting tricks." Meanwhile, this is exactly what the stimulus bill is. It's nothing more than a pile of casual dishonesty to hide... oops not spending, however, he's hiding what he's doling out to lobbyist and such.
They want to give the government the banks. It must because the US government is sooooo good with it's money
The writer of the article (Liz Sidoti) states, "With his re-election race just a few years away, he also has an interest in avoiding being labeled as a big-government, big-spending Democrat." If he's trying for that label, he's off to a good start.
