Can't piss a lick ...

If we're to believe many, many different new reports, President Obama's gonna come out as a super-serious deficit hawk in his State of the Union speech.

Obama, supposedly, is gonna propose a three-year freeze on federal discretionary spending. Funny, but Obama berated John McCain in '08 when McCain said he was in favor of doing just that. Lookit.

My problem with Obama's proposed spending freeze is this:

Entitlements are off the table, and anything education-related is also off the table. Oh, and Military/man-caused disaster-related stuff can't be touched.

So, what fuckin' federal spending can be frozen? Maybe a highway-building project here, and a university grant there; but, wait, ain't highway-building and university-granting hallmarks of Obama's "stimulus"? How can he, in good faith, cut any o' that?!

My Grandaddy Jack used to say this when he encountered a clueless shipdit: "[He/she] can't piss a lick." I hate to say it, but I fear that President Obama can't piss a lick ... indeed.
