This is actually pretty amusing considering the source. You simply can't make this up. 1/20/13: One and DONE!

Cool. Gotta cut spending somewhere. If Texas Village Idiot Dumbya Bush--or any other Republican for that matter--were currently president, they would be spending $1 trillion on useless government swag.

Trusting a Republican to cut government spending is like trusting Britney Spears to babysit your children.

Let's see Barack give up the cocoa lotion with the presidential seal on the bottle.

Would Michelle flying off to Martha's Vineyard for vacation four hours ahead of Barry be an example of liberals being thrifty?

But he is NOT reducing government spending. He's just grandstanding while moving our tax dollars from one pocket to the other.

Notice this; "An administration official said the estimated $4 billion saved by the measure would be reinvested in "things that really matter" like "our nation's infrastructure to help grow the economy and create jobs.""

So instead of wasting our tax dollars on coffee mugs, he will be wasting our tax dollars on companies like Solyndra.

And why has it taken him three years to stop spending our tax dollars on things that don't really matter ??

Glad you understand this, unlike some on here who do not get it?
Yeah but it is perfectly acceptable to waste our hard tax dollars on the Going down hill fast Solyndra. Think they knew about this Company, before going forth, they all need to go now Obama and his MERRY BAND OF THIEVES.

This President, has no problem with spending, thought he was going to be new and different for a new era, my a--> he is such a liar.
Tired of him blaming others for his stupid mistakes, and by the way Bush has been out of here for quite a while, guess some have memory loss!!!!!

Obama has no problem at all digging his own grave, just some are too dang stupid to realize this?

All of the banks have REPAID their TARP loans with interest. I bet not one penny was returned to the treasury and the payments were redirected to other spending.
