This is amazingly dumb: Obama Seeks Freeze on Many Domestic Programs

Not surprisingly the blogs are all over it.

Please tell me that this isn't the first dividend of the Citizens United ruling.

    Actually, Obama is pretty sure the American public is a bunch of idiots. His “freeze” “would not apply to “entitlement programs such as Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid,” “would not restrain funding for the $787 billion economic stimulus package Obama pushed through Congress early last year,” would not “apply to a new bill aimed at creating jobs,” and would be “unlikely to affect the approximately $900 billion health-care bill.”

    In fact, according to one calculation, it would only apply to approximately 11 percent of the budget. The portion of the budget that represents $3.3 trillion in fiscal 2010 would still be permitted to grow.

    Additionally, Dems in Congress have already rejected the idea.

    So really, it’s just a PR move (yet another) made by Obama to make it look like he’s doing something, knowing that nobody will ever dare to fact check him in such a way that the masses ever hear it.

    He thinks you are an idiot, and he’s not afraid to tell you over and over again.
