Out of public view Wednesday, Obama signed a $410 billion spending bill that includes billions for items known as earmarks, the targeted spending that lawmakers direct to projects in their districts. Obama promised during the presidential campaign to curb such spending.

Does the hypocrisy never end? Im just curious when we as Americans are going to stand up and say something. Im always willing to give someone a chance, but why does it seem that no matter what this man does, no matter how sneaky, no matter the fact that hes doing EXACTLY what he said he wouldnt do in so many areas, people still stand by.

Come on guys, when is it going to come time to concede that this guy is just another politician and we need to stand up and take control of whats going on in OUR country.

Democrats and Liberals need to make a stand as well, ok so a lot of you voted for Obama. Thats fine, not a problem, but just because you voted for him doesnt mean what he is doing right now is whats in the interest of our country, have the courage to stand up against your party and do whats right.

Alright, so now you have our attention. What, pray tell, does that statement actually say? Does he pretend to oppose all the earmarks, or does he just praise their largesse?

So we were right again when pointing out that Obama would use them as well... big surprise there... NOT.

Obama is a phoney and he's like all the others president, a dirt bag.
