Newsweek gets balls on the way out.

I took away a couple of lines from the article:

"He may well be the greatest hoax in history."

"What could this breed if not the sort of empty narcissism on display every time Obama speaks? In 2008, many who agreed that he lacked executive qualifications nonetheless raved about Obama’s oratory skills, intellect, and cool character. Those people – conservatives included – ought now to be deeply embarrassed. The man thinks and speaks in the hoariest of cliches, and that’s when he has his Teleprompters in front of him; when the prompter is absent he can barely think or speak at all."

Although I don't agree with the "conservatives included"; conservatives either reluctantly voted for the alternatives, or stayed home from the polls.

The man(or woman) in office makes no difference, they're just the person people point their fingers at when things go wrong. Ultimately a country is run by the people who live in it and what they're willing to put up with from their "leader".

I wonder why we are so in debt? It couldn't have anything to do with two unfunded wars that raged for a decade, could it?

Nope: Try Welfare, Pensions, & Health Care. Can you say Socialism? Don't forget, $8 trillion (that's almost 1/2 of the 18) has been accumulated on Barack Hussein's watch--and he doesn't fight wars.

Not against totalitarian regimes that is--he's too busy waging war on the middle class. Successfully too; call it redistribution, retribution, socialism, whatever you want--he has brought about the change he championed on the campaign trail.

What's the source for that pie chart?

I looked at several charts; they're all basically the same. It's just a breakdown of the budget--can't be manipulated to any advantage really.

The one from the CBO only muddies the waters--Intentional?--I'd bet my bottom dollar. They combine discretionary & nondiscretionary on the same chart.
