Not Obama's Budget

The lamestream media told you:

"President Barack Obama's first federal budget lays out the most far reaching agenda for American life since Lyndon Johnson's Great Society. The Obama priorities reflected in the $3.6 trillion budget guarantee a fierce political battle ahead over taxes and spending," according to the Associated Press.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

It is beyond impossible for one man to develop a budget that large within the first four weeks in office. Suggesting it is "his" budget misleads the public to the point of deliberate fraud. It has become so routine in "news" circles however it is barely noticed, let alone scolded.

The federal budget is a product of thousands of bureaucrats, apparatchiks, departments, clerks, special interests, vested interests, lobbyists, specialists and writers working non-stop in cubicles year in and year out, lined up to grab tax dollars and public debt dollars with two hands. The president (reportedly a very busy guy) can't even know what's in it any more than any other single individual can, let alone be in a position to call it "his."

"Hundreds of unidentified federal operatives today announced the release of a 3.6 thousand billion dollar budget which they have typed up and delivered to the Democrat-controlled Congress and newly elected president, who have agreed to call it their own," is more like it. "Congress and the president are rumored to have had some input on parts of it, but which parts are unknown, and the rumor could not be confirmed. Names of people who actually wrote the budget have not been released."
