Question: How can America tell that President Obama isn’t at all serious about cutting spending?
I mean other than his history, his track record, his attitude, his statements and his general disregard for anything that really matters?
There are actually two easy answers to this so-obvious-it’s-barely-worth-asking question…
Answer Number One: The Obama administration has warned White House Easter Egg Roll ticket holders that the annual event might be canceled due to budget cuts… but is making no such considerations concerning tonight’s St. Patrick’s Day bash.
According to White House Dossier, last year’s event featured “hundreds of guests” with more than enough alcohol to accommodate them all. And there’s no reason to think that this year will be any different.
Answer Number Two: When asked how Obama can “justify lavish vacations and a golf trip to Florida at taxpayer expense” with “millions of Americans unemployed and family budgets that have been cut,” White House Spokesman Jay Carney only spewed forth his normal babble about the President’s commitment to “policies that create economic growth and help advance job creation.”
He never once addressed his boss’ opulent, expendable, government-paid habits, undoubtedly for the simple reason that Obama has no plans to make a single sacrifice for his country.
That’s how we know he’s not at all serious about cutting spending.
