What's Mallard raving about today?
President Obama, Debt.
Given that Mallard Fillmore did not say anything while the debt was being run up, he has no standing to criticize now.
Getting up on my soapbox for a bit here, this has never been about debt or Government Spending. If so, the national conversation would have started when the debt started piling up and not on January 20, 2009.
This is and always has been about who benefits from Government Spending and now that a Democrat is in office, Republicans worry that Government Spending might not benefit the right people (them and their direct financial contributors) at which point it has to be shut down.
I'm going to say it right now: when the Super Commission fails at its work, the spending cut triggers kick in, and the GOP introduce a Bill to restore Defense Spending (because, don't you support the Troops?)...anyone who does not immediately and without qualification denounce them and their actions is never allowed to speak about deficit spending ever again. Because you don't get to care about it, but only until it affects one of your sacred cows. Because then you're just a hypocrite.
