More proof Obama is unqualified

The continuing saga of the federal budget shows us just how unqualified for the job this president is.

The president’s budget is making “painful cuts” that would slash deficits by $1.1 trillion over the next decade.  Put another way, his cuts eliminate an average of $110 billion per year over the next ten years.  But that doesn’t eliminate the deficit. We would add $7.2 trillion to the deficit over that same time period, or an average of $720 billion per year.

Obama calls these “painful cuts” a “down payment.” The problem is, we can’t afford a down payment.  We need to solve this fiscal crisis now.  And that takes leadership.  Unfortunately, brilliant oration and an MTV image don’t equate to practical knowledge.  That is something that comes with real and actual executive experience, something that Obama had none of before he came to this job.

Elections have consequences.
