My amusement at this is the outright hypocrisy of the occupant of the Oval Office. He has essentially used the taxpayers money as a personal checking account to pay off political favors to unions, banks, corporate cronies, and just about anybody else who he thinks can benefit him politically. His spending plans are increasing the nation's debt by an average of over $1.6 trillion per year.
What kind of pork has Obama passed in his budgets and stimulus?
Just to name a few, from the Wall Street Journal Online:
$1 million to upgrade the Los Angeles County Convention Center elevated "catwalk" for cameras and lighting;
$350,000 for an Albuquerque, N.M., fitness center;
$94 million for a parking garage at the Orange Bowl in Miami;
$4.5 million for Gretna, Florida, to bottle water with recyclable bottles;
$35 million music hall of fame in Florissant, Missouri,
$3.1 million for a swimming pool in Tulsa
And let's not forget the over $500 million payoff to the now bankrupt Solyndra, the UAW payoff with the bailouts of the GM and Chrysler, Wall Street, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and so many others.
Does Obama really want to go down this path?
