Technically, Obama is not even President unless he's a "natural born" citizen. RELEASE YOUR LONG-FORM BIRTH CERTIFICATE!

Oh no! He is not going talk about PAYGO again after he has run up the largest deficits in history and has increased the national debt to record levels. It is like saying you are going to quit drinking after you have gone on a bender and have emptied out your liquor cabinet.

Evidently someone in the White House saw polls that showed people were concerned about the deficits and the national debt. So the President is going to make some remarks that will make him appear fiscally responsible even though his actions have not been fiscally responsible.

He has a habit of saying one thing and doing the opposite. Eventually he won't be able to get away with that or with blaming his predecessor for the problem. Then what?

Note to White House: Sometimes it is better to say nothing than to say things that make you look ridiculous. Maybe the time to enforce PAYGO would have been before we went on this wild spending spree.
