    Gee... I wonder if hussein brought this up during his "fiscal summit?" Or if he happened to mention the 200 new government agencies his spending orgy created?

    Why the liberals won't acknowledge the absolutely astonishing hypocrisy and lies of obama is beyond me. It's almost as though he has them under some kind of weird mind control.

    I heard that Obama is going to cut the annual deficit he is creating by half. By the end of his first term.............

    Why doesn't that reassure me? Oh yeah--more deficits!! Yearly deficits. Apparently, we are going to need to empower a third party or face insolvency!!!

    Of COUSE they're earmarks.

    They are funding thousands of projects.

    How else could they do it?

    An earmark is an earmark is an earmark... whether it's a "traditional" one or not. I hear echos of clinton..... "it depends on what IS is."

    but they aren't earmarks in the sense that they are pet projects without any purpose.... like bridges to no where.

    They are spending projects... that's the whole point of the stimulus bill.

    (and yes, I know that *you* know that).

    Key words and utter stupidity.

    Man am I sick of the bullshit spewed by the right.

    The good thing is the American public is too and the Rs are losing this battle of word play.

    The public sees right through this latest republican attempt at pretending to be the Fiscal party.

    People who have ballooned the deficit for decades dont have any legs to stand on once people view the facts.
