I’m a deficit hawk. I hope you’re one as well. If you are it means you want to see our gargantuan government put on a strict diet. You want to force it to live within its means, rather than borrow trillions of dollars to spend on programs we don’t want or need. ([b]As one crazy example, we just agreed to borrow a billion dollars from China so we can send it to Brazil to bribe them stop cutting down trees. That’s just one of the Administration’s new “ecology” programs.) [/b] Deficit hawks are sick and tired of the way deals are done in our nation’s capitol (and far too many state capitols). We get angry knowing that our representatives use our money to bribe other voters so they can play “Big Spender” in Washington. We’re seriously afraid that our leaders will destroy our currency and bankrupt our country. That’s what the phrase “deficit hawk” means.[b] What does that make our president? I know President Barack Obama, and I can assure you he’s no deficit hawk. Despite all of his talk about cutting spending, trimming needless programs and being as frugal as possible with our money, he’s more like a deficit peacock. By that I mean he’s much more concerned about how he looks and sounds than believing what he says. I’m sorry to have to say this, but our president is living proof of the old cliché about how you know a politician is lying (answer: his lips move). I’m beginning to believe that the narcissistic egomaniac who occupies the Oval Office actually believes his own rhetoric. How else could our Teleprompter in Chief sound so sincere and convincing when he gets in front of a microphone to ‘splain things to us? Here’s the Straight Talk rule for deciphering a politician’s rhetoric: Forget about what he says. Instead, watch what he does. What Barrack Obama has done is promote a spending spree that would make a drunken sailor jealous. Obama has taken federal spending to a whole new level. If you thought George Bush, with his “guns and butter” social conservatism was irresponsible, W was a miserly skinflint compared to the smooth-talking sugar daddy who replaced him.

I believe that our president is deliberately trying to bankrupt the country. Once he tears it down he thinks he can rebuild it the way he thinks it should be. He's destroying the middle class and soon everyone will depend on the government. Then he'll have power. Another theory I came up with this morning is that our government is trying to prod us to the point where we get violent. They can then declare martial law--elections are suspended and everyone is controlled through military force. I'm a deficit hawk but it does no good.

Well, I definitely think that he wants to rebuild the government the way he thinks it should be (a.k.a socialist). He's definitely destroying the middle class. His idea of the middle class is actually the lower class, and that's the only group that he has helped so far.

OMG dragon54u now you have really given a horrific scenario. I just pray that it never comes to violence. Although one can never tell when we have a megalomaniac running our country.

When I lived for 4 years in a North African Muslim country it was well know that there was only two classes of people - the very rich and the very poor. There was no middle class and it was intentionally kept that way as the very poor had no education and therefor were of no danger to the rulers who were rich and very well educated usually in the UK or the USA.

I agree with the article as well and I agree with the comment that Obama is trying to tear us down to rebuild in his image. There will be no middle class, no "American Spirit", and no HOPE.

What a terrible future for our once great country. I really wonder if the good days are gone for generations to come.

I don't think it's too late. The election of Scott Brown really showed that the American people aren't going to continue to put up with the policies taken so far during Obama's presidency. Ever since then, he's started to change his tune...but not enough!

The article just confirms what I have been seeing and saying about Obama since he started running for the Presidency. A "joke" that has been circulating about Obama is unfortunately being proven true. In case you haven't come across it yet - "Before Obama we had Bob Hope and Johnny Cash. With Obama, we have NO hope and NO cash!" What is really scary is the fact that there are still large numbers of people who believe what he is saying.

Very clever but too scary to be funny. Thanks for sharing I am going to pass it on.

I am impressed with the term, deficit Peacock. Is that something that you came up with? I like it very much because it is a great descriptor. I do agree that we are doing a lot of things wrong, or rather, the government is doing a lot of crazy wrong things. Some problems can be blamed on previous administrations, but Mr. O is certainly doing his share as well.

No I did not come up with that term. The person who wrote the article (see link) came up with it. I agree that the previous administration caused some of the problems but Obama is only adding to them instead of trying to rectify them.

I definitely agree with the article. He is not concerned with the deficit or the national debt. He disregards it so blatantly and flippantly that it very well could be that he is intentionally trying to destroy our economy. It could be that he thinks if he does that he can declare emergency powers and enact whatever he sees fit "for the good of all", otherwise known as socialism or communism. If you look at the big picture, the recent drastic problems with our economy started a long time ago, with policies put in place during the Clinton administration. Bush inherited that but didn't do anything to correct it, indeed he made things worse. While he tried to enact some safeguards in the form of reining in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and their Las Vegas casino style money management, his efforts were thwarted by democrats in congress, such as Chris Dodd and Barney Frank, who were in cahoots with execs from these lending institutions and protected them from any oversight or regulation. The Bush administration did a good impression of the Democrat party with his record deficit spending, which proves it's both parties that are responsible for our situation in regards to the record debt and budget deficits. The problem now is that everybody that voted for Obama did so with the hope (and his promise) that he would change Washington and correct the course of the country. What he's actually doing is more of the same that Bush did, only a lot more of it. Our only hope is to vote 90% of congress out at the earliest opportunity, which is next November. We need to get rid of these career politicians that have been in there for most of their adult lives and are corrupt. I'm not an advocate of the Republican party, but we need to get more Republicans and true Independents into office if only to restore our checks and balances and end the one party control that we have right now. Then we need to vote people into office that will actually change Washington and make it work like our founding fathers originally intended. We need candidates that will run on a platform of reform and change to fix our government and if they don't want to do it, we find somebody else that will. That's really what the Tea Party movement is all about. Most people in this country are totally disgusted with our government, both parties, and want real change. So far, we're not getting it and there's not much hope of getting it under this administration.
