Looks like in matters of federal domestic spending, Barack Obama’s First Term has become George W. Bush’s third.
“THE NEW ERA OF SPEND AND BLAME: ‘After running a campaign against the $1 trillion deficit he â€˜inherited’ from President Bush and the Republicans, Obama quickly matched it. During his first 50 days in office, he and his Democratic-controlled Congress spent $1 billion an hour. Under Obama’s proposed budget, the overall national debt doubles in five years and triples in 10.’”
For all Obama’s talk of change, we’re only getting more of George W. Bush’s domestic policy with a healthy dose of blame your predecessor thrown in so the incumbent Democrat can distinguish himself from the Republican who, media reports notwithstanding, never did blame his.
