    Ya we should be glad he wants to cut less than half a penny from every dollar he plans to spend. Of course he could have just NOT put those amounts IN his budget to begin with. A budget he rammed through a partisan congress just like he did with the stimulus bill.

    Context to leftists is only something to be ignored, twisted, or abused, as it suits their agendas.

    Whine whine whine all the time. I wonder how many looked into context as a budget surplus went down the tubes not so long ago. And sometimes you have to start someplace, that would seem like the right thing to do in this context.

    Idiot

    FOR THE UMPTEEN BILLIONTH TIME... THERE WAS NO FUCKING SURPLUS... THIS HAS BEEN PROVEN OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN

    Do I complain that he has made some cuts?? Nope... Do I complain that it is a smokescreen and a mere drop in the bucket when you take into account the spending he is ramming down the American people's throats?? HELL YES
