Mr. Fiscally Responsible
Obama now claims to want a "pay as you go" government. For every dollar of spending there must be a corresponding $1 spending cut or, hold on to your wallets, a tax hike.
Which is to say, that tax cut 95 percent of us were supposed to get, yeah, well, we can pretty much forget about it.
The Democrats' stimulus isn't stimulating and is being spent on bankrupt car companies, social programs and to bail out states that were wildly irresponsible with their own spending in flush times. Still Obama wants to pretend that he is The One who is being fiscally responsible.
Why not? The suckers have bought what he's been selling so far. But one day soon his own audacity will catch up with him. The Washington press corps won't moon over him forever. And when they quit, and when they start seeing him for the political charlatan that he is, it isn't going to be pretty.
