“Obama is…”

“Obama is out there playing golf and campaigning while Washington is getting buried in debt! He won’t make the necessary cuts. But forget Obama, we need to take care of our debt. PLEASE, give me your credit card.”

“Honey, you have to spend money to make the kind of money we need…”

“No wonder we’re in trouble! As Ray Kroc said and lived, ‘Free enterprise will work if you will.’ We can’t wait on Washington; we’ve both got to start working to get this under control!”

“I won’t take just any job.”

“I hope you can find the right job, but until you do, we need to control spending. Did see the bumper sticker on Phil’s car—‘If at first you don't succeed, do what your wife told you to do?’"

“Very funny.”

“I married you for good or for worse, but you didn’t have to test me! Trust me. Together we can CUT expenditures, CAP future spending, and BALANCE our budget starting today.”

“Remember that priceless proverb from that six-year-old, ‘He who marries for money...better be nice to his wife.’ I think it’s time to follow that advice.”
