    One minute, Obama is harkening to right wing ideas about the deficit and how important that is...and harping on 'cutting programs we can't afford' and 'shared sacrifice' really irritates the shit out of me.

    Beating his chest about "fewer regs" and "lower deficit" makes me a bit disheartened.

    But...

    Invoking all the things that old Republicans did? The Interstate? The EPA? That Saint Reagan actually raised taxes?

    I did enjoy that.

    Admitting that "Government doesn't have all the answers"? Bad. But jumping on the idea that "the market" does? Good.

    Wanting to end oil subsidies? Wanting to use war money at home? Great.

    But not enough "Great" to cancel out all the "Bad". Hmm.

    "Government Boondoggles"? That could be anything, couldn't it Mr. President?

    He's still better than Romney, but he's not the flaming liberal socialist the Corporate Right says he is.
