    "As President, on Day One, I will focus on rebuilding America’s economy. I will reverse President Obama’s massive defense cuts."


    2006 $522B
    2007 $551B
    2008 $616B
    2009 $661B
    2010 $694B
    2011 $768B (estimated)


    Last time I checked, when something gets increased by hundreds of billions of dollars, thats not considered a cut.

    I'll just say he's uninformed.

    You're very polite, HD.

    I hate when they say, "On Day One...."

    On "Day One," no president does anything but get sworn in and party. And he can't just change a budget without House and Senate approval - not unless he wants to start out with absolutely everyone, including his own party, hating him for the next four years.

    Lies work. The Republicans have mastered that with Fox News and Rush Limbaugh at the helm. Hell, Bush got away with needlessly killing 4500 American troops by making up crap about Iraq's WMD and nuclear weapons program. The Republicans don't care.

    Actually the only one uninformed here is you. When talking about government spending, it is perfectly acceptable (and in fact commonplace) to use the term "cut" when you are really referring to a reduction in the level in increase.

    First and foremost I think half a trillion dollars should be enough to defend this country. Give or take anyway. Second to that, and to the question posed in the title, I thinks it's a bit of both, and plays to what Wolf said. In DC, or in political speak, a lot of times they talk about a lesser increase as a "cut" when it suits them.

    How does that reasoning compare with this?

    Transcript of Obama’s Speech on Debt Deal - Washington Wire - WSJ
    Here is the CBO score for the "debt deal":

    Weird...

    It must be a Harvard Law thing.

    I get a kick out of people who are not fully informed on an issue accusing others of being uninformed.

    I don't agree with him that we need an even bigger increase in spending, but he is not being dishonest or clueless when he discusses cuts in the rate of growth as spending cuts...he's just talking like he's already acclimated himself
    to Washington-speak.
