News Flash from the White House: Too much debt is bad, mkay?

No, really, the President is issuing a Stern Warning™ that if we don't get this pesky deficit under control, the recession could just auger in. It's like he finally started reading the reports the CBO has been sending him. Not only do we not have any more money, we don't have any checks left either. Something has to give.

So why, Dear Leader, are you forcing so much debt on us? You do remember you aren't a Senator any more, right? You have a veto. You don't HAVE to allow this flabbergasting debt increase on your watch. And really, your warning is unnecessary since we (meaning people who know how to balance their checkbooks) have been trying to tell YOU this for months now.

He'll only chirp that tune until it comes time to buy more votes -- there's no way he'll cut the SEIU loose to fend for itself.

I see by the comment above that the troll must've been pretty vulgar.

Anyway, back on topic. It's official:

"President Obama has shattered the budget record for first-year presidents -- spending nearly double what his predecessor did when he came into office and far exceeding the first-year tabs for any other U.S. president in history.

"In fiscal 2009 the federal government spent $3.52 trillion..."

Why do I feel a tax increase coming on?
