barack obama's ideas on spending are the same as michelle's! There used to be a common phrase for a person who spends money so foolishly! It was something............rich? Something...........rich? I just can't remember what it was exactly? It was a term used to refer to a selfishly extravagant person who has no prospects of ever paying off the debts they incur. (Esp. someone whose sole purchasing power comes from disreputable credit cards or drugs.)

Michelle Obama "Stubborn inequalities still persist--in education and health, in income and in wealth." Solving these problems is going to take money--a lot of it--and all of it is ours. But at least Michelle will have a sense of pride in her country.

President Obama's latest news conference was further confirmation that his voracious appetite for spending was not satisfied but whetted by the fiscal cliff deal, which he views as an appetizer.

We were told that the GOP achieved a coup in the fiscal cliff negotiations because they lured Obama into an agreement to lock in the Bush tax rates except for the highest-income earners. Never mind that Obama agreed to no spending cuts or entitlement reform after demanding a "balanced approach" to deficit reduction; they told us he'd be forced to address those matters in a couple of months in the debt ceiling...
