RUSH: Every Republican in Washington ought to be running to the nearest microphone and proclaiming Obama’s budget is dead on arrival, just as the Democrats did every year to George W. Bush and to George H.W. Bush before that. It is an abomination.
From Power Line, posted yesterday: ‘Today the Obama administration unveiled its budget for FY 2011. Obama said, ‘Our government is deeply in debt after what can only be described as a decade of profligacy,” but we have established that as recently as 2007, the budget deficit was only $164 billion, 176. And now it’s a trillion because of policies implemented in 2009. ‘So he proposes to put the country far more deeply in debt through profligacy of a sort that was undreamed of just a few years ago. … Either Obama has completely lost touch with reality, or he thinks we have.’ In truth, it’s neither. He’s not lost touch with his reality, and he doesn’t care whether we have or not. I mean he would love to fool us, but he doesn’t care. Just like he doesn’t care what you think about illegal immigration, cap and trade, or health care. He doesn’t care. He and his buddies have a mission and it is to remake this country. The choice is between the death of America and America’s survival. Put plainly, that’s what we face with Barack Obama. Not just this budget, but with his entire presidency.
