Doctor Obama, Heal Thyself

Do as I say not as I do seems to be the Barack philosophy. At his town hall meeting in Nashua, New Hampshire, Obama discussed the need to cut spending during tough economic times. "When times are tough, you tighten your belts," the president said. "You don't go buying a boat when you can barely pay your mortgage. You don't blow a bunch of cash on Vegas when you're trying to save for college."

Now, that seems to be sensible advice and a common sense approach to the problem. In fact, it's so obvious it should not even need to be stated. Why is it then that the federal government will grow to 2.15 million employees this year, topping 2 million for the first time since President Clinton declared that "the era of big government is over"?

As usual this president preaches one thing and does another. Remember, liberals do not feel bound by their own rules or, for that matter, even the law.
