Obama to propose spending freeze – Glenn Thrush and David Rogers – POLITICO.com

Imagine that, Obama the deficit hawk. In what appears to be a political move intended to appease deficit-weary politicos and the public alike, Obama is poised to announce a halt in non-security discretionary spending. Cutting spending and pushing through an aggressive legislative agenda simultaneously will prove to be quite the balancing act, but I suspect the employment of creative fiscal gymnastics by Team Obama will make matters easier.

    Obama has revealed himself to be a pragmatist. And what else is “pragmatic” when our country is facing bankrpuptcy and reduced credibility in international markets other than cutting back and trimming the deficit?

    He’s only a conservative when it’s his only option, I guess. Not the kind of friend I’d trust with my money!
