An End To An Era

Did I miss the point at which Pravda bought out the Washington Post?
With the 2015 budget request, Obama will call for an end to the era of austerity that has dogged much of his presidency and to his efforts to find common ground with Republicans.
Well, I mean, last year's projections do look a bit like austerity, if you're stone blind.

Obviously that kind of thing can't continue. I had some notion that the correction might run the other way, though.

Whose austerity, though? Congressman Mike Doyle (D, PA) said in a meeting with Biden just prior to the August, 2011, House vote on that year's negotiated debt ceiling raise, "We have negotiated with terrorists. This small group of terrorists have made it impossible to spend any money."

Clearly, Obama's latest budget proposal corrects that defect and prevents the austerity from resuming--not too far off the Post's claim.

Just like Mary McCarthy said of Lillian Hellman, "Every word she writes is a lie, including 'and' and 'the.'"

But he is such a good liar. He sounds so sincere!

Which is why he does it so often. He gets away with it so often.
