Default Obama's Failed Policies!

Here it is (and I knew it wouldn't take long).

Obama is now signing legislation that he ADMITS is bad law, and that BUSH HIMSELF WOULD NOT ENDORSE!

This is the smoking gun. This is the tipping point. Obama is now forging his own failed policies, and, too make it worse, he's signing BAD bills that even "the worst president in history" thought sucked and wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole.

We are in trouble. Big, bad trouble...

http://www.ohio.com/news/nation/41133297.html

(Oh, and as a bonus, all Obama's flunkies pork is listed as well...also note that this is an AP article, not Fox News or Rupurt Murdoch or the devil or whatever the uber leftie libs always claim are being sourced).

WASHINGTON: As a candidate, Barack Obama once said that a president has to be able to do more than one thing at a time. Wednesday he proved it, though not in the way he had in mind.
He criticized pork-barrel spending in the form of ''earmarks,'' urging changes in the way that Congress adopts spending proposals. Then he signed a spending bill that contains nearly 9,000 of them, some that members of his own staff shoved in last year when they were still part of Congress.
''Let there be no doubt, this piece of legislation must mark an end to the old way of doing business, and the beginning of a new era of responsibility and accountability,'' Obama said.
He said, however, that it was crucial for him to sign the $410 billion bill as soon as it arrived at the White House from Congress because it's needed to finance much of the government for the rest of this fiscal year. It was largely written last year but was held back while Republican George W. Bush was president because he opposed it.


''I am signing an imperfect . . . bill,'' Obama said, ''because it's necessary for the ongoing functions of government, and we have a lot more work to do. We can't have Congress bogged down at this critical juncture in our economic recovery.''
Obama proposed changing the way special projects are financed, including competitive bidding for spending that goes to for-profit businesses. Aides also said the White House Office of Management and Budget would review the spending bill for examples of wasteful spending. The president then could send those back to Congress as proposed cuts, called rescissions, for an up-or-down vote.
Although Obama insisted that the recently enacted $787 billion plan to stimulate the economy be free of any earmarks — spending on special projects usually in senators' home states or representatives' districts — he made no such demand of this spending bill.
''The president could have done better. He couldn't have eliminated the earmarks in this bill, but he could have at least cut them back significantly,'' said Steve Ellis, vice president of Taxpayers for Common Sense, a budget watchdog group. ''We appreciate how he kept them out of the stimulus, but we think he's only batting .500.''
''The American people know actions speak louder than words,'' said House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-West Chester. ''The president's new promises on earmark reform would carry greater weight if they had been accompanied by a veto keeping his earlier promises on earmark reform.''
Obama signed the bill in private, unlike a number of recent signings that took place with fanfare.
Obama also issued a ''signing statement'' with the bill, saying several of its provisions raised constitutional concerns and would be taken merely as suggestions. He has criticized former President George W. Bush for often using such statements to claim the right to ignore portions of new laws, and on Monday he said his administration wouldn't follow those issued by Bush unless authorized by the new attorney general.
White House officials have accused Bush of using the statements to get around Congress in pursuing anti-terror tactics.

$7.6 billion in earmarks
The bill contains 8,816 earmarks worth $7.6 billion, according to Taxpayers for Common Sense.
Notable among them are $155.9 million in projects that six members of the Obama administration who were members of Congress last year, when the bill was written, inserted into the bill.
Top among them was Vice President Joe Biden. As a senator from Delaware, Biden added 56 earmarks that cost of $52.1 million, including $13.7 million for the Intracoastal Waterway from the Delaware River to the Chesapeake Bay and $190,000 to help build a children's museum in Wilmington.
Others were:
• White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, who as a House member from Illinois added 16 earmarks worth about $8.3 million, including money for a Chicago planetarium and suburban children's museum.
• Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, formerly a Democratic senator from Colorado, $44.6 million.
• Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, formerly a Republican congressman from Illinois, $26.5 million.
• Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, formerly a Democratic House member from California, $15.5 million.
• Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, formerly a Democratic senator from New York, $6.7 million.
The White House has pledged to send legislation to Congress seeking the rescission of all earmarks sponsored by current members of the Obama administration.
Geographically, Alaska topped the list, with 100 earmarks valued at $143 million, or $209.71 per capita. Next was North Dakota, with $110 million or $172 per capita.
The data show that it pays to be a top Appropriations Committee official. Hawaii, the home state of Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Daniel Inouye, came in third, at $165 million, or $128.12 per capita. Fourth was Mississippi, represented by top Republican Appropriations member Thad Cochran, with $324 million in earmarks, or $110.59 per capita.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

"Rescissions" = another way to say "line-item veto?" Didn't the Supreme Court rule presidential line-item veto power to be unconstitutional back in 1998? Although I disagreed with the ruling at the time (and still do) and I think the president should have line-item veto authority as almost every state governor has it, but, as of now at least, it's still unconstitutional per the highest court in the country.

Only a month and a half. . .

I guess the "hate Rush" agenda is out the window. . . since it too doesn't do anything but prove that obama is a empty headed politician.


Funny, everyone was worried about Palin's inexperience. Yet no one wanted to talk about Obama's inexperience.

As usual, Tony Hyp(ocrite)chest can't actually talk about the issue at hand. Deflect away my liberal friend. It's apparent your head is stuck so far up your sheperd's arse...that you'll never truly see daylight unless he tilts his head skyward and belches.
