Candidate Barack Obama vs President Barack Obama?

CANDIDATE Barack Obama promised a line-by-line scrub of the wasteful government programs.

November 2008, Obama said when introducing budget director Peter Orszag:

"We cannot sustain a system that BLEEDS BILLIONS OF TAXPAYER DOLLARS on programs that have outlived their usefulness, or EXIST SOLELY BECAUSE OF THE POWER OF A POLITICIAN, LOBBYIST OR INTEREST GROUP.

We simply cannot afford it"

Why does PRESIDENT Obama strongly encouraging congress to approve ALL that excess spending "pork" in this new "STIMULUS BILL".......?

What happened to: "We will go through our federal budget _ page by page, line by line _ eliminating those programs we don't need, and insisting that those we do operate in a sensible cost-effective way," CANDIDATE Obama.

    Candidate Obama--lies like every politician who uses excessive campaign promises to get votes.

    President Obama--is the typical President who wins an election with all those campaign promises, but doesn't do anything but spend American tax dollars.

    People become so worried about their money that they forget about all gazillion promises he made, making it easier for him not to fulfill them.

    In my opinion, Obama is just a puppet. Now that he's in office, he is just put there to look good. This happens all the time, too bad America is so full of sheep that they could not see thru his facade. Plain and simple, he promised us diamonds but now we realize they were cubic zirconia all along!

    Well, he was talking about the budget. This is kind of the bonus we get with President Obama - a second budget.

    Candidate Obama said what was necessary to get elected. President Obama does whatever his globalist, neo-socialist backers tell him to do.

    Did you do similar posts with the billions of Bushie discrepancies?

    If we had a dollar for every one of those, we'd have paid for the stimulus package.
