The Orwellian doublespeak gets more pronounced every day.
After borrowing trillions of dollars and racking up more debt in 100 days than Bush did in 8 years, Obama is now lecturing us for running up too much government debt.
So he was against tribunals before he was for them, against GITMO before he was for it, for regulating CO2 before he was against it, for confiscating bank bonuses before he was against it, for banning assault rifles and high-cap magazines before he was against it, for releasing detainee photos before he was against it, and now he was for debt before he was against it.
When he said he wanted to bring change to America, I had no idea this is what he meant.
Is he crazy? Or crazy like a fox? Let's see -- use a crisis to run up trillions of dollars in government debt that will surely cause massive inflation. Then use that crisis to justify more expansion of government power in the financial sector. Meanwhile, the country runs around in a constant state of panic, willing to give him whatever he wants so he can cure the crisis. I'm starting to get the feeling that we're just going to see one crisis after another for the next few years, only to be told that the only way out of each one is to expand the powers of the federal government.
