Maddow Blog | Obama’s spending binge is a deficit reduction plan or something

Indeed, Obama is acting like a confident, re-elected president who expects congressional Republicans to start moving in his direction, not the other way around. GOP leaders aren’t accustomed to this dynamic, but it’s probably time they adapt to their new surroundings.

For the left, if there must be a focus on debt reduction, the White House proposal is the right way to do it. The plan roughly meets the broad outline House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) says he wants, but does so in the most progressive way possible. Indeed, Obama’s offer — which was leaked by Republicans, not formally presented to the public by the administration — even includes additional economic stimulus in the form of infrastructure spending, extended jobless aid, and an extension of the payroll tax break.

    It’s interesting to note that Maddow and Al Sharpton were at the White House getting their message ducks in a row.

    What they are doing is not a mistake by their lights. They wish to permanently grow Government, repeal the last vestiges of Reaganism, and begin the slow collectivization of the culture.

    This is who they are.

    Palin was right all along.
