    Fear mongering.


    SOmetime you need to let the market correct itself, not use it for earmarks and pet projects.

    He lies and says it has no earmarks,.


    YouTube - Obama #1: This bill does not have a single earmark in it, which is unprecedented for its size



    Please to explain.
    We're not talking about the Stimulus Package which was certainly earmarked for all intents and purposes. We are talking about the FY2009 Omnibus spending bill.

    I thought I made it clear, but somehow you misunderstood.

    This is NOT about the stimulus bill, its about the $410 billion bill that was introduced months before Obama's inauguration.

    Again, he said he would not sign a bill with earmarks, here we have 8000+ earmarks.


    Reckless spending with no end in sight.

    My bad..... But still, its pork, it's spending, obama promised to cut wasteful spending and pork, and there is no indication he will veto this idiocy of a spending bill.


    Like Fred Thompson said, Its like telling a fat guy that the way to get skinny is to eat more donuts....


    Makes little sense.

    Okay, I'll break this down again for you. I have no idea if you are actually reading our posts or not but I'll do this again.

    We are talking about the FY2009 Omnibus Spending Bill, not the American Recovery Act (Stimulus Bill). Obama has not signed the Omnibus Bill because it has not left the Senate for his approval or veto.

    I will concede, not his bill, however he is the one who will sign it or veto it.


    The buck stops with him. Do you not agree?

    I have clearly addressed the correct bill in a subsequent post and its correlations to obama's promises. Please try to keep up.


    Do you think he will sign it? What about his campaign promise to end earmarks and pork spending?

    Does the buck stop with him or not?



    Please, I think you are capable of putting things in context and viewing the bigger picture here. Please do not prove me wrong.


    Thanks.

    Let's see what he does with FY2010. I bet he will sign that one and it will, like usual, be laden with pork.

    Did Obama actually promise not to sign a spending bill with earmarks, or did he promise that he, as a Senator, would not requst any earmarks? There is a huge difference here.
