"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Obama's Budget

The AP is reporting a sort of movie preview build-up to Obama's budget. Article here.

Apparently reducing the deficit has to do with raising taxes on the wealthy (like Tom Daschle, Tim Geithner, Wesley Snipes, and company) and cutting the defense budget (while calling up 30,000 more troops to be pushed into Afghanistan).

While I don't want to make any criticisms until an itemized budget is released, how can Obama possibly talk about cutting the deficit just one week after pushing through an historically large spending bill? Come on... This appears to be, once again, shockingly naive.
