Promises, Promises, Promises

Jack Trapper of ABC News has a good roundup of Barack Obama’s lengthy promises. No one can say the Illinois senator is at a loss for ideas.

Of course, as Trapper notes, we’re in for a net loss of $428 billion during Obama’s first term if all his plans are enacted (that’s from the bi-partisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget). Obama’s assertion that he’s offered more than enough spending cuts to cover his new spending is just a wee bit spurious.

O.k., it’s a lie but it’s a lie all politicians tell so no one seems to care.

The question is: if elected, will Obama be the kind of spendthrift his programs indicate he’ll be or will he set aside a good portion of his plans for the health of our budget?

I guess we’ll find out if we elect him.
