President Obama released the proposed 2011 White House Budget of $3.8T beginning in October which would incurr an additional $1.56T deficit. If approved by congress that would bring our current deficit to approximatelyThe President once again blamed the Bush administration for The budget must be approved by congress before it goes into effect. True to his State of the Union address last Wednesday President Obama included $100B for his "second stimulus" which Obama refers to as his "jobs bill." Many, including (R) Sen. Judd Gregg of New Hampshire wonder why we would enact a second stimulus when the first accomplished so little. Today on FOX News Sen. Gregg aptly quote. 2011 delivered his State of the Union address to the American people tonight on national television, his tone and perspective unchanged. Country watching, Obama 2011 Budgetthe President scolded the Senate as well as the Supreme Court while praising the House for initiatives passed and went on to offer the same worn out platitudes of earlier speeches. Can it be Obama is so isolated that he actually believes the American people have not lost trust... in him, not just government and corporations? Or is he just unable to admit it?

Plouffe has described it as a “pivotal moment.” More like "you spin me right round baby, right round."

John BoehnerThe invitation followed the President's State of the Union address in which he told the Republicans if they had any ideas to contribute, he'd like to hear them.

 

Although respectful, neither side held back. (R) Rep. Jason Chaffetz, of Utah questioned the President about seeming contradictions in his State of the Union address including transparency during healthcare reform and lobbyists within Obama's administration. Regarding transparency, President Obama blamed logistics before accepting responsibility for the lack of transparency surrounding healthcare reform. Concerning "lobbyists," although the President recognized their presence in his administration and the dispensations given Obama stated no president had done more to reduce their (lobbyists) influence.... more
