New National Review piece: Defending Fiscal Insanity “Demagoguery” is not too strong of a word to describe Obama’s speech

My National Review piece starts this way:
In President Obama’s address to the Associated Press Luncheon on Wednesday, he claimed that he is preventing disaster. Republican congressman Paul Ryan’s proposed budget cuts would still allow publicly held debt to increase by $5.5 trillion over the next ten years, but to Obama, they mean Americans will be dying from starvation and defenseless from hurricanes and other natural disasters. “Demagoguery” is not too strong of a word to describe Obama’s speech. Two million mothers and young children will be left without “access to healthy food.” Violent crime will soar and illegal aliens will flood across our borders because of cuts in law enforcement. “Hundreds of national parks” will close. We won’t be able to “protect the air we breathe, the water we drink, or the food that we eat.” Airline flights will be cancelled or delayed, and safety will be threatened in parts of the country. “Weather forecasts would become less accurate.” Governors and mayors will “wait longer to order evacuations in the event of a hurricane.” The list went on and on. . . .

Markie Marxist sez: "My commie compadre, Comrade President Obama, is correct. Overspending is our first priority. How else are we going to get America to the 100% taxation that is communism? It's just common communist sense to melt the national credit card and bankrupt capitalism. Socialism will look good by comparison after we've collapsed capitalism, and we’ve been making substantial progress on that. We don't call ourselves 'progressives' for nothing, you know. Ha! Ha!"
