    Re: Obama Seeks $100M Budget Trim From Cabinet

    In what amounts to a scene out of Hollywood's version of executive power, President Obama will convene his first Cabinet meeting this morning and order his department chiefs to immediately cut a combined $100 million from their budgets.
    Ya know, call me radical, but doesn't it seem odd that this is only Dear Leader's FIRST Cabinet meeting? We're on day what? 60? 70?

    He seeks to trim $100 million. He's done nothing but talk so far, and we've seen how his words & promises have turned out.

    Re: Obama Seeks $100M Budget Trim From Cabinet

    First, let me give credit to Obama for cutting $100M from the Budget. That's $100M more of our money he's not taking then previously.

    Second, give me a ****ing break. So the budget is $3.4T instead? That's still a record setting budget yes? That's still THREE POINT FOUR TRILLION DOLLARS of our money is it not? Obama pushed for a great portion of the budget, yes? The democratic congress was the one primarily creating the budget, yes? Obama would be signing the budget, yes?

    Jesus Christ, MASSIVELY slapping Obama on the back for cutting $100M out of that is like your boss telling you he's lowering your hourly wage to $1.00 an hour but then saying "Don't worry, I'm going to give you a 3% bonus on top of it."

    Thirdly, weren't some of the same democrats in the media and on this board and sitting as PRESIDENT the ones that lambasted and attacked McCain and his followers for the fact that cutting out earmarks would only account for a small percentage of the total money spent? Well, how are you going to justify attacking McCain over that when you're now trying to get pats on the back for a less than THREE PERCENT cut out of the budget. To me, that looks like a "small percentage" does it not? So why was McCain's talk of cutting earmarks out of the budget to help save money a "distraction" and a "stunt" that would have little real impact or meaning because it was a small percentage but yet this is somehow a great sign of compromise and bipartisanship and fiscal responsability from Obama.

    Give me an F'ing break.

    Nice job on cutting $100M from your overly bloated over the top budget, glad for it. However you don't get a ****ing cookie because you're still spending a record amount.

    Why do you call him dear leader?
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    I'm not trying to sound overly partisan here but this... this is insulting. It makes me realize how stupid the public is. "Hey, I know we just wasted TRILLIONS of dollars, and have budgets so high that you're grandkids will still be paying off our debt,m but hey look, we're gonna TRY to cut 100,000,000.00 from our budgets! See we get it, we care!"

    Hypocrisy is not a friend of just one side here, is it?
    While this in fact true, remember that Bush never really pushed for such cuts at the same time as signing lots of spending bills. Cutting has to start somewhere and Obama is at least on the right track in doing so. While $100 million is pennies on the dollar, you gotta start somewhere. Historically, looking at HW, who did sign spending bills, he did also start serious cuts at the same time as raising taxes to get out of Reagan's red pool. If Obama can do much of the same, then maybe he won't be as much of a failure as people are predicting.
