Don't you feel the love from this president. First, he proposes the biggest deficit-laden budget in the history of mankind, then he preaches frugality and belt tightening.
Here is what President Obama said about the budget and our fair city in a speech in New Hampshire just now:
"Finally, shouldn’t we all agree that we have got to do something about our deficits? These deficits won’t just burden our kids and grandkids decades from now – they could damage our markets, drive up our interest rates, and jeopardize our recovery right now.
"This isn’t how responsible families do their budgets. When times are tough, you tighten your belts. You don’t go buying a boat when you can barely pay your mortgage. You don’t blow a bunch of cash in Vegas when you’re trying to save for college. You prioritize. You make tough choices. And it’s time your government did the same."
Frankly, I'd like to see more people come blow a bunch of cash in Vegas. A few might even win. But when you roll the big federal government dice, only the bureaucrats win.
