    Budget Chief: Obama Will Sign Spending Bill

    WASHINGTON -- The White House on Sunday downplayed massive deficit spending and President Obama's pledge not to sign legislation laden with billions in earmarks amid Republican criticism that he was recanting on a key campaign promise.

    The administration's top budget official, Peter Orszag, said Obama would sign the $410 billion spending bill despite a campaign pledge that he would reject tailored budget requests that let lawmakers send money to their home states. Orszag said Obama would move ahead and overlook the time-tested tradition that lets officials divert millions at a time to pet projects.

    It was the Washington equivalent of officials pinching their nose and swallowing a bitter pill.

    "This is last year's business," Orszag said, offering an acknowledgment that Obama would sign a bill that doesn't conform with his campaign vows. "We want to just move on. Let's get this bill done, get it into law and move forward."

    So when will they run out of excuses and reasons to blame Bush? What happened to the hope and change?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    The change is where the money is going to be spent. Instead of Iraq and cost plus going to the defense industry and it's supporting cast and crew it's going to be the technology and social programs interest groups. That's change.
    *insert profound statement here*
