It's pretty hard to stomach when President Obama even talks in terms of cutting the deficit, because his entire economic philosophy compels him to keep spending as if his goal were to impoverish our children and because he continues, in fact, to spend at such bankrupting levels.
Reuters reports that Obama's proposed budget would cut the deficit by $1.1 trillion over 10 years. Are you kidding me? We wouldn't even come close to balancing the budget if we applied all those cuts in one year, but spread out over 10 years, they are insulting. Plus, many of these "cuts" would be solely the result of bringing troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan.
We also learned that Obama's deficit for 2011 would not be the outrageously obscene $1.5 trillion the Congressional Budget Office revealed last month, which was already substantially above last year's $1.3 trillion, but a staggering $1.65 trillion.

Zer0 can only spend if Congress lets him. There’s plenty of blame to go around, especially if the House doesn’t take firm action.
What do I do with all the ‘WTF, Obama?’ TShirts?
Protectives speculate wisely.
I prefer Owning My Federal Government and Loving Our Liberty.
Whatever they can’t cut, they should transfer in whole to the States. We will then wage a war of interstate attrition upon theses “popular” programs in the market of interstate competition. ;)
More like STP [Screw the pooch].
0 can’t even break even in the present.
