I did some quick math. In 2008, the federal government spent $8,900 for every man, woman and child in this country. Last year they spent $10,200. (I used constant 2005 dollars). In 2008 we were able to house criminals, inoculate children, control air traffic and do a million and one sundry other things. Today, according to Obama, we will unleash financial Armageddon if we just slow down the increase a couple of percent. We are spending 15% more and deescalating two wars, and we can’t manage to provide necessary services? I think we need better managers here.

Yes, but we know Obama’s strategy here is to expand govt control/power and advance his ideology of social justice; he's feeling awfully cocky these days and believes he can leverage his manufactured crisis (which he blames on R's) to speed up the process. Not only do we need better managers we need different political animals altogether. Being inept is part of the job description for most of our representatives. We can't fix that.
