I don't think you have a clue at to how much wasteful spending there is. Probably 1/2 of the spending in any year is wasteful, and likely unconstitutional.

kali_fred: Statistically you are incorrect on the wasteful part. The unconstitutional part of spending is near 100 percent.

In form, President Obama came back strongly in Tuesday's debate with Mitt Romney, but substantively he continues to lag behind the Republican candidate. That's because the president has a record to defend and it isn't a good one.

Television being what it is, the president looked and sounded good, but the air seems to have gone out of his messianic balloon as voters focus more on facts and less on spin.

If promises mean anything -- and they don't to most politicians -- Romney hit the president where it hurts: on his failure to live up to most of his promises.
