If everyone else does their part and budgets responsibly, the Democratic controlled Senate and White House can pretend they are budgeting too?

And all the Sheeple will Bahayahahayh Yup, Yup, Yup.

It took a real effort for Government Schools to destroy logic, common sense, decency, and any sense of History.

The Sheeple do not even blink when the Propagandists release news like this.....They just Bahayahaha in unison.

And then they stood around the Oval Office, toasting their brilliance with 50 yr old scotch, fine cigars, patting each others backs, and working on the next ingenious presidential proclamation that
does...nothing. Trying to stay relevant. And they lived happily ever after in a $20 mil mansion in Hawaii. Cue the theme music from Fractured Fairy Tales.

Let's all pretend... Obama didn't inherit a "over-mortgaged" economy, because otherwise, the wing nutters have some culpability....

Off budget/multiple wars
tax cuts for the rich
Katrina mess ups
TARP
Agricultural subsidies were doubled between 2002 and 2005.
Tax expenditures—the vast system of subsidies and preferences hidden in the tax code—increased more than a quarter.
Tax breaks for the president’s friends in the oil-and-gas industry increased by billions and billions of dollars.

Some portion of the damage done by the Bush administration could be rectified quickly. A large portion will take decades to fix—and that’s assuming the political will to do so exists both in the White House and in Congress. Think of the interest we are paying, year after year, on the almost $4 trillion of increased debt burden—even at 5 percent, that’s an annual payment of $200 billion, two Iraq wars a year forever. Think of the taxes that future governments will have to levy to repay even a fraction of the debt we have accumulated. And think of the widening divide between rich and poor in America, a phenomenon that goes beyond economics and speaks to the very future of the American Dream.

In short, there’s a momentum here that will require a generation to reverse. Decades hence we should take stock, and revisit the conventional wisdom.

I’m guessing that George W. Bush will have earned one more grim superlative.

Sorry Bushwhacker, your argument doesn't stand. None of the items you've listed are reflected in current spending, which is 1 TRILLION more than is taken in. Bill Clinton cut taxes and the economy flourished. The point of the "proclamation" was to promote responsible household spending. Unfortunately, if we spend more than we have, WE can't vilify the rich and raise there taxes to cover our spending addiction.

Mikey, Bushwhacker(AKA Seattle Slew) doesn't have any real arguments. If you search, the Slewster typically cuts and pastes everything from published sources. In other words, only the insults and childish name calling are actually Bushwhacker's. So, don't expect an intelligent response from her unless it can be found published somewhere else.

A guy who's never even paid for his own lunch, teaching fiscal responsibility?
And, when is he going to explain how he paid to attend 2 of the most expensive colleges in the country without wealthy parents, and no visible means of support, or good grades?
