That about says it all, other than blasting the automatic tax raise if the debt goes up. If Congress spends, taxpayers automatically pay. Wasn’t that slick and slimy? From The following are Krauthammer’s remarks today after Obama’s budget speech. See the video below.
“I thought it was a disgrace,” he said. “I rarely heard a speech by a president so shallow, so hyper-partisan and so intellectually dishonest, outside the last couple of weeks of a presidential election where you are allowed to call your opponent anything short of a traitor. But, we’re a year-and-a-half away from Election Day and it was supposed to be a speech about policy. He didn’t even get to his own alternative until more than halfway through the speech. And when he did, he threw out numbers suspended in mid-air with nothing under them with all kinds of goals and guidelines and triggers that mean nothing. The speech was really about and entirely an attack on the [Rep. Paul] Ryan plan.”
I want to point you to some excellent commentary on Obama’s budget speech at The Other McCain. Take a look at the fuzzy math – The Impressively Large Number trick. Visit Memeorandum for the growing discussion.
