Did know President B. Hussein Obama's holding a "Fiscal Responsibility Summit" at the White House today? Yeah, you read that right. Barely a week after he signed the biggest budget-busting bill in American history, which doubles the U.S. budget deficit, Obama has suddenly decided that it's time for the gov'ment to start spending its money wisely.
If'n that weren't surreal enough, ol' B. Hussein is now promising that he's going to cut the budget deficit in half within four years. I don't often heap praise on our president, but I have to give him props for making such a cluelessly big-balled statement, indeed.
You don't have to be a Ph.D in economics to know that the Federal deficit ain't gonna be slashed until entitlement spending - i.e., Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, etc. - is cut. Surely Obama -- who ain't an econ Ph.D but who sure fancies himself an expert on everything -- knows such. Is he planning on cutting entitlements? If you believe that, I have a Keebler Elf living in my basement who's available for free cookie-baking tutorials.
President Obama. Again, SO surreal ...
