Barack Obama's definition of "fiscal responsibility"

Thomas L. Knapp takes Obamao to task for defining "fiscal responsibility" as spending only half a trillion more than his company takes in, instead of a full trillion.

I watched the president's speech last night. As always, he can be counted on to give good speech. He got in a good zinger about those CEOs and their private jets. For some reason, he decided to hold off on announcing that he'll be giving up his personal jet -- you know, the one he used last week when he flew all the way to Denver to sign a bill he could just as easily have signed on the top of Teddy Roosevelt's old desk in the Oval Office.

Make no mistake here: Barack Obama is a CEO, just like the ones he's chewing out.
