A billion an hour for nearly two months?

The New Era of Spend and Blame

For a guy who talks so much about wanting a new era of re sponsibility, President Obama spends an awful lot of time blaming Republicans for all the wild and reckless spending he crammed into his own budget.

After running a campaign against the $1 trillion deficit he “inherited” from President Bush and the Republicans, Obama quickly matched it. During his first 50 days in office, he and his Democratic-controlled Congress spent $1 billion an hour.

Under Obama’s proposed budget, the overall national debt doubles in five years and triples in 10. [emphasis Murdoc’s]

I wonder if this sort of thing is what Pete Townshend meant when he said that Obama’s election was “the most wonderful result” and that “maybe” the “meet the new boss, it’s the same as the old boss” didn’t apply this time.

I also wonder what the people who voted for Obama on the platform of “change” think. Because I think they were suckers. (via Instapundit)


  1. If he gave me a million…I’d pay off school up until graduate level, then do an about face and become a Republican party official. XD

  2. “…$1 trillion deficit he “inherited” from President Bush and the Republicans…”

    Shouldn´t it say “from President Bush and the Democrats in the House and Senate”? Pelosi and Reid had been running the show for two years.
