Even the Washington Post Editorial writers are saying Obama's budget ain't all that and a bag-a-chips...http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/05/09/AR2009050902143.html
Obama's budget not only defers hard choices to future presidents, it makes it almost impossible to get out of the hole he's digging. I should say "we are digging" because the American people are eating this all up as judged by Obama's approval ratings. At this pace, there won't be a whole lot of choices requiring anything less than radical reconstructive surgery available to future presidents.
I've always had sympathy for those who had to live in socialist, bankrupt regimes where individual initiative and personal freedom was limited or impossible. Obama is moving America in a direction where before long I will probaby know all about it myself. Hyperbole? I wish.
