Now that the “Plouffe You, You Dirty Effing Bedwetter Brigade” has taken over the public communications again for the Obama administration, we are treated to the Trial Balloon of the State of the Union address, which says the President wants a 3 year spending freeze which would exempt the Pentagon, Veterans affairs, and Homeland Security. Of course, the senior Administration official spoke anonymously.
I don’t think this is a good idea.
Just in case I was having a bout of alternate unpragmatic netosphere universal misunderstanding, I peaked at the highly respected Chicago writer and Democratic activist icebergslim’s twitter feed, http://twitter.com/icebergslim… and saw this:
Obama Embraces Hooverism with a link to this at GOS:
Which has the first sentence:
There are no words to describe how disasterous this news is from TPM
Which has now been frontpaged over at GOS. Somehow the author has not been flogged nor auto banned yet.
Phew. I always worry for the ones that they haven’t taken out back and handed a shovel to dig with, yet.

The president’s latest rollout of ideas served as a preview of his prime-time State of the Union address. The economic elements of that speech will also cover Obama’s plans to boost job creation and reduce swelling budget deficits — areas of concern to the public.
Obama’s address will outline his second-year agenda across a spectrum of issues, including tighter rules on Wall Street behavior and a push for financial discipline in Washington. He also is expected to touch on the issue of gays in the military.
In an interview Monday, Obama defended his agenda and said he would not support only smaller issues that avoid controversy. “I will not slow down in terms going after the big problems,” he told ABC News.
The story also goes on to say that Obama wishes to give more tax credits (that’s also known as increasing the deficit….. ) for child care for middle class families, and telling employers to offer employees IRA savings accounts, and allegedly offering money to people to care for elderly parents.
So, my advice to you, the unemployed of America, all 15 million to 30 million of you, official or off the grid, is to sign up for those Training Centers for Day Care workers as soon as possible. Since the average yearly salary for day care workers is about $27,274 a year, you should be in chicken and dumplings real soon.
