When you see such waste as a $5million dollar goldfish study, you really have to ask yourself, how is it the government is completely unable to cut spending?

Obama has been kicking and screaming for years, refusing cuts, insists on more spending. If he skipped a vacation, or couple rounds of golf, and perhaps spent a few quality moments reviewing government waste, spending, etc.. he could have avoided a good lump of the economic issues he is currently whining about.
But this just confirms yet again, that he has NO interest in doing his job, he has NO interest in helping our country, he is merely a destructive egomaniac, who wanted to hang out in the White House for a couple years and play with celebrities.

When it comes to his apocalyptic speeches on how the Republicans are getting in his way, think about that for a while.. exactly how have THEY gotten in HIS way, and what has HE done? Think about what he has shoved under the door during his term, he obviously knows how to skip around the rules.. when some focus starts to shift towards him, he blames everyone else.
This is not a man, this is a toddler having a fit. And we all get to watch & pay for it.
