I only feel obligated to comment on Obama’s new deficit hawk stance because if, years from now, archeologists use my blog to recreate the record of this day, I can’t let such an idiotic statement go unchallenged. The man that tripled our deficit in a single year now wants to talk about deficits. When Obama says that he is going to freeze spending to control deficits, that is like a man sticking his finger in a hole in the damn while planting explosives with the other hand. Of course, defense, entitlement, TARP, and stimulus money is off the table. I also plan on a personal budget freeze, except for house, medical, food, utilities, personal, entertainment, clothing, giving, automotive, Netflix, fitness center, and cell phone. Don’t get me wrong, I will take what I can get and hope he does freeze spending. Every penny not spent in Washington is good. I just want to make sure that the “freeze” is put into proper perspective.
