Don’t Read The Whole Thing

Just read this one paragraph:

Mr. Walker identifies the disease as having a basic cause: “Washington is totally out of touch and out of control,” he sighs. “There is political courage there, but there is far more political careerism and people dodging real solutions.” He identifies entrenched incumbency as a real obstacle to change. “Members of Congress ensure they have gerrymandered seats where they pick the voters rather than the voters picking them and then they pass out money to special interests who then make sure they have so much money that no one can easily challenge them,” he laments. He believes gerrymandering should be curbed and term limits imposed if for no other reason than to inject some new blood into the system. On campaign finance, he supports a narrow constitutional amendment that would bar congressional candidates from accepting contributions from people who can’t vote for them: “If people can’t vote in a district not their own, should we allow them to spend unlimited money on behalf of someone across the country?”

Just kidding, read the whole thing.

Instapundit and I Agree with 0bama

President Barack Obama, calling current deficit spending “unsustainable,” warned of skyrocketing interest rates for consumers if the U.S. continues to finance government by borrowing from other countries.

No shit, Sherlock

A budget with no shortage of lies

It’s nothing new for presidents to give us bloated budgets with phony promises of belt-tightening at the end of the day. But never, ever, in the history of the republic has there been so irresponsibly gargantuan a budget defended by rhetoric so duplicitous as we are now seeing from President Barack Obama.

100 Days, 100 Mistakes

72. On Earth Day, Obama took two flights on Air Force One and four on Marine One to get to Iowa, burning more than 9,000 gallons of fuel.

$100 million?

$100 million? Are you freaking kidding me?

You run the national debt up three trillion dollars and now you think that asking your cabinet to save millions makes you fiscally responsible?

We’re not that stupid, Barack-0.

“The Department of Homeland Security estimated that it could save up to $52 million over five years by buying office supplies in bulk, the official said.”

Wow, just Wow.

“We are on an unsustainable course.” Obama said in his weekly radio address on Saturday.

Well, we agree there.  Our plans to change course vary just a little bit though, Hussein.  My plan involves you with a hand lettered sign reading ‘will work for food’ standing on a street corner in Chicago.
