Banging Obama's drum

Our president assumed office in the middle of the biggest recession since the 1970s. Since then, he's done everything he can to make it worse. His dream of a socialist utopia is going to break the back of the country, and I can't find too many people who disagree with that. In stark contrast to reality and the wishes of The People stands the NY Times. These fellow travelers are dutifully banging the drum in support of a man who is communist in all but name.

    On paper, President Obama’s new $3.7 trillion budget is encouraging. It makes a number of tough choices to cut the deficit by a projected $1.1 trillion over 10 years, which is enough to prevent an uncontrolled explosion of debt in the next decade and, as a result, reduce the risk of a fiscal crisis.

Reducing the deficit by $1.1 trillion over 10 years is pathetic. Obama and his megaphone -- The New York Times -- must be hoping the populace isn't savvy enough to know the difference between deficit and debt. A more accurate description of Obama's budget would be, "Reducing the wild overspending that threatens the nation will occur at a snail's pace over more than a decade."

We need a constitutional amendment forbidding deficit spending so there are no Obamas in the future. I'm not voting for any presidential candidate unless he or she promises to push for such an amendment, and makes it central to their campaign, and makes me believe them.
