Obama spending tracking website found lacking
 
Yet another huge waste of money.

I find this pretty ironic.

I'm pulling for Obama (even though I didn't vote for him) because he's our President. But I could help laughing at a joke a co-worker told me today:

Did you hear Lindsey Vonn gave her gold medal to Obama? Yeah, no one can go downhill faster than he has.

While on the topic of the President, I found this article in WaPo really interesting. It was from a few weeks ago. I've thought for a while Rahm was the problem. I still don't really care for him, but I've thought it was his ego that was hurting the Presidency. Turns out that may not be the case:

If it was up to date you'd complain that they have too much money tied up into it :p

Here's another massive waste of money from him...I just heard on ESPN Radio a commercial with the President telling men to be better fathers and to go to [URL="http://www.fatherhood"]www.fatherhood[/URL][B].gov[/B]. Seriously...FATHERHOOD [B]DOT GOV[/B]? Are you joking? Not only does the Government have a place telling people how to parent...but actually having a site like this being run by the Government? I know there's a huge issue with single mothers and multiple fathers in urban communities, but it's just not the Government's place to tell people they have to be responsible for lives they create. Do they honestly think they can impact anyone?

"Yo man, your baby momma needs some cash for diapers".

"So what, I gotta pay my cell bill, she'll get it when I have it".

"But Obama said you need to step the #$&@ up as a dad."

"Really, he said that?"

"Yeah man, go check out his site about it!"

"Wow, this changed my life, dawg. I'm moving back in with Jr. and no more ladies for me other than his mom".




Seriously?

Those are the things you get when goverment thinks it can solve all our problems. Maybe if we stopped given these girls getting knock up assisstance and replacing the man with goverment they might think twice about gettin knock up by some looser with no job or income.

Maybe some, but most people were fed up with the wasteful spending on the Republican side as well. Now it just looks partisan, but everyone in this country should want the government to at least try to shed some of its waste.

Yes we are bigots against goverment waist. Bush wasted enough money over 8 years but its only taken Obama one year to fly right by him.

DO you even know what "bigot" means?


Yes, President Bush was far from Conservative in his last term, but also remember it was also a Dem-controlled Congress getting those spending plans on his desk, he's not the only one to blame. With that said, President Obama makes President Bush look like a penny-pincher. On top of that, the Bush tax cuts are not going to be renewed in a recession and soon we'll be paying a lot more in taxes, especially small businesses. The average American will be paying $2,087 more in taxes when they're allowed to expire by this Administration. Like President Bush personally or not, you have to admit his tax cuts (for everyone, not just the "rich" as his opponents like to falsely claim) helped boost the economy greatly after 09/11. The days of paying less in taxes are long gone as long as Democrats are in control.

No pass for W. His tax cuts were nice. Not as nice as they could have been had he figured out how to not spend the money he was not collecting.

Hommie don't play that. Those sound bites and party talking points might work on uneducated dolts, but around here it's just static. We're beyond that BS even if you aren't.

By your stupid-super-retarded logic one is left to ask "do any public service announcements make an impact?"

Because Buster, well, is a stupid man incapable of meaningful thought it must be pointed out the ads were done in-corporation with organizations in the PSA business and wasn't paid for by the government. The campaign was the product of National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse (NRFC) and the [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ad_Council#History"]Ad Council[/URL] with DHS/White House merely making a guest appearance. Since 2008 media organizations across the country, [URL="http://www.fatherhood.gov/media/press/pressrelease1.cfm"]including ESPN[/URL], have donated [URL="http://www.adcouncil.org/newsDetail.aspx?id=276"]38 million dollars[/URL] in free advertising to the NRFC's campaign.

As for the real question of whether the government should be in the business of encouraging fathers to be fathers? I would tend to think the answer is fairly straightforward from moral and social welfare argument.

Not everyone has the same morals. You're right, the government does such a wonderful job.

your beyond that? the first 6 years of a republican congress, and W. had free reign on spending. im not saying i agree with all the money that's being thrown around Washington. but you guys voices would be a lot louder if you had started chirping back then
