Obama the deficit hawk
“We are not going to be able to perpetually finance the levels of debt that the federal government is currently carrying.” — President Obama, February 12, 2009
That was yesterday, before the Congressional Democrats and three Senate Republicans gave President Obama his national debt-busting $787 billion bailout boondoggle, which will actually cost $3.27 trillion.
Now, with his so-called “stimulus” in hand, Obama will morph into a deficit hawk.
Obama’ has scheduled his “fiscal-responsibility summit” for February 23, and according to the Wall Street Journal, three days later, Obama will start to pressure politicians to address the country’s debt crisis.
Oh the irony hypocrisy Obama. How does this president get away with having everything both ways?
