Late but brief: Obama's Speech in 3 words

"Tax...and spend."

How on earth was that a deficit reduction speech?  It was vitriolic, partisan, filled with numbers pulled out of the air, and farcical accounting tricks.  But he wants to go back to killing the Bush tax cuts for the 'rich'.  And he doesn't want to give up spending money.

He's a progressive.  He's a tax and spend liberal.  I know, I've gone beyond 3 words.  I refer you back to the first three words.  That's more words than that speech deserved.  And to go even further, Charles Krauthammer did it in one word:


Kudos to Krauthammer for such accurate brevity. And he did it faster than me too.
