Obama Calls a Mulligan

Tomorrow, our president will ask for a do-over.  You see, in February of this year, the President released his budget proposal calling for an increase in federal spending to $3.7 Trillion.  Despite the hype, seen exclusively at http://www.whitehouse.gov/, the budget contained very little in the way of real spending reform.  In fact, the only true nod to reform was a five year freeze on federal employee wages.

In the meantime,  the country has become more vocal in demanding real cuts faster.  The House is preparing to pass a budget that reduces the federal deficits over the next 10 years by $6 Trillion.  More, people have been demanding that our President be involved in this process, that the Leader of the Free World do something novel, like lead.  So, now, with an address scheduled for tomorrow night, the President appears ready to do just that.  Let's hope.
