Andrew Sullivan sees the light

Just how bad is Obama's new budget?  So bad that Hope Dope Andrew Sullivan tore himself away from Sarah Palin's reproductive history to pen this scathing critique.

They[Senators]  have to lead, because this president is too weak, too cautious, too beholden to politics over policy to lead. In this budget, in his refusal to do anything concrete to tackle the looming entitlement debt, in his failure to address the generational injustice, in his blithe indifference to the increasing danger of default, he has betrayed those of us who took him to be a serious president prepared to put the good of the country before his short term political interests. Like his State of the Union, this budget is good short term politics but such a massive pile of fiscal bullshit it makes it perfectly clear that Obama is kicking this vital issue down the road.
To all those under 30 who worked so hard to get this man elected, know this: he just screwed you over. He thinks you're fools. Either the US will go into default because of Obama's cowardice, or you will be paying far far more for far far less because this president has no courage when it counts. He let you down. On the critical issue of America's fiscal crisis, he represents no hope and no change. Just the same old Washington politics he once promised to end.
If Obama's budget is so bad it makes Andrew Sullivan wake up and take notice, then there is hope that Congressional Democrats will see the light too.

Hey Kiddo, how have you been? Yep, the left is getting quite an education about the real Obama.
