Call this the laugh of the day from Politico:
plans to announce in next year's State of the Union address that he wants to focus extensively on cutting the in 2010 – and will downplay other new domestic spending beyond , according to top aides involved in the planning.
The president's plan, which the officials said was under discussion before this month’s , represents both a practical and a political calculation by this White House.
Is Obama so stupid as to think that a few tough words on cutting spending will erase the fact that he and the Democrats ran amok with a buck wild spending spree? Sorry Charlie, that ain’t gonna fly with hardly anyone. Unless Obama can find a way to cut hundreds of billions, if not trillions, out of the deficit before 2010, much of the Democrats will be gonners.
We should also take this as a tip off that the Democrat DID receive the message on election night.
