How come Obama still continues to spend money we don't have, didn't he get it when the Dems were defeated?

And with zero federal money. Yet Obama wants to use NMU as a model for federal WiFi spending. Obama hearkened back to FDR’s Rural Electrification Administration in advancing a new federal infrastructure program — even as the rural, 21st-century town in front of him already had privately financed WiFi.

Obama has already been “investing” millions in rural WiFi as part of his mammoth stimulus bill. The deceptively titled Recovery Act — actually a front for an Obama New Deal to spend on self-indulgent, “transformative” tech — provided some $7 billion for broadband toys, including $2.5 billion for the Rural Utility Service (yet another federal bureaucracy tucked away in the rolls of federal-budget fat) at the Agriculture Department. Michigan’s Oakland County, for example — the fourth-richest county in America — has received $32 million in stimulus welfare for its “rural” population.

One would take an educated guess that Obama must be a slow learner, the Congress lost the Democrat control by a landslide in Nov, as did the Democrat Governors because of the very idiotic spending spree and agenda of the liberal left and the Obama Cabal.

The chant in 2012 will be "ANYBODY But Obama"

    He tries to hide the huge increases behind a few cuts of much lower value. Then he tries to call himself a budget cutter.

    Do we really have any illusions as to why Obama Care will be launched at the end of his second term. I would hate to be president in 2016 if Obama and Obamacare survive..

    Every President for the last century has spent money the government doesn't immediately have on hand.

    The relevant question is whether, considering the interest rate on borrowing, a particular federal project is worthwhile. Congress makes that decision.

    If Obama could not spend any borrowed money at all, he would be forced to shut down the entire US military immediately. Is that what you really want?

    It takes a whole lot to fix up something compared to doing it right the first time. For 8 years Dubya sold our country out, didn't protect, defend our preserve and NOW you don't like what it takes to repair it.

    It's not like Republican voters didn't have a clue each time a Republican gets into office we have bail outs for the banks, mortgage & insurance companies.

    You will find when our country is suffering the consequences, the republicans were the ones who fought us saying that it was too costly while giving all our money to the rich and saying that the rich will take care of us if we don't make them pay taxes also.

    So quit your gripping.

    Because spending was so out of control when he took office that the only way to balance the budget now is to shut down the government or borrow it and keep it running.

    What will the republican congress do now?

    Because the budget is controlled by Congress, not by the President.

    Obama can't spend money

    Congress spends money

    the President can propose investments, he has a right to do so, but it is up to Congress to put them into law

    But you're ok with spending money we don't have on tax cuts we don't need and two wars we shouldn't be involved in and accomplish nothing, right? Because that's the kind of deficit spending conservatives can't get enough of?

    Maybe he should spend a few trillion invading Egypt - but get sidetracked invading Lebanon and let Mubarak get away...

    Oh wait, that's what Bush/Dick would've done.
