Obama WH to Congress: Letís spend a little more before the midterms!
Hot Air ^ | SEPTEMBER 15, 2010 | ED MORRISSEY

What a great idea! With voters rising up to wrest control of Congress away from Democrats in large part because of overspending and regulatory overreach as well as a failing economy, Barack Obama has decided that the next few weeks on Capitol Hill should be dedicated to more ad hoc spending:

Despite coming under daily assault from Republicans over spending, the Obama administration is pushing a $20 billion-plus pre-election shopping list on its Democratic allies in Congress as they prepare must-pass legislation to prevent a government shutdown next month.

Republicans are protesting the spending requests, which include $1.9 billion for grants to better-performing schools, financial help for the Postal Service and more than $4 billion requested by the administration to finance settlements of long-standing lawsuits against the government.

Obama has progressed way beyond being incompetent. Hope and change are distant memories. The American people have had enough and he still doesn’t have a clue.

Obama is worse than a gold-digger shopping with a limit-less credit card.

I understand that a few Donks are circulating a financial transaction tax of 1 percent every time money moves...
The reference is HR 4646. It would nick 1 percent from any check or receipt of money at a financial institution.

Well now I know where Robert Mugabe learned how to govern.

He has a clue; he doesn’t care. He operates as a dictator. There are 41 Republican Senators in the Senate. This stuff only gets through now with the capitulation of at least one. GO TEAPARTY!

he still doesn’t have a clue.

The real problem is that he does have a clue - he is following the marxist handbook and bankrupting the country thus bringing it closer to a marxist run country. The real problem for 0 is America figured him out and his silver tongue turned to tin.
