    So much for transparency. He's just covering the tracks on himself and his cronies. How's the hope and change working for all of you who voted for the Charmed One?

    It should read Obama's Charm IS Offensive.

    Perhaps President Obama can explain why his mythical $1.2 trillion spending cuts he claimed he accomplished in his state of the union speech had no cataclysmic, devastating impact on every aspect of our lives while he claims the relatively miniscule $85 billion sequester decreases in planned spending increases will totally destroy America!

    Charm, really! It will take more than charm to fix the financial cliff we are headed for trying to run our country without knowing where we are going. I wonder if the word budget is in the Obama family vocabulary with all the money he spends flying those 747's around on private vacations, golf, etc. He is certainly taking advantage of an opportunity to reward himself and his family at taxpayer expense big time with our kids having to pay the tab on all these borrowed funds.
