The Bitter Taste of Irony
Funny how items show up in spending bills without any notice -- like an earmark for a president who promised not to seek any.
President Obama, who took a no-earmark pledge on the campaign trail, is listed as one of dozens of cosponsors of a $7.7 million set-aside in the fiscal 2009 omnibus spending bill passed by the House on Wednesday.
Never fear fan-boys. They are going to "edit" the bill to remove his name. Uh yeah, so boom, history rewritten. Enjoy.
This story will not have any earmarks.
Remember folks, the ENTIRE deficit was inherited by this administration, who just happened to be part of the assemblies that added earmarks to bills.
Oops, sorry I promised no earmarks to this story. Don't worry I'll edit those out later.
