Obama's Revolution: "A Very Different Country"

Here's an update to my post from the other day, "Obama Echoes Reagan in '81: Came the Revolution?"

It turns out the Wall Street Journal makes a similarly interesting observations, "
The Obama Revolution:"

In the closing weeks of last year's election campaign, we wrote that Democrats had in mind the most sweeping expansion of government in decades. Liberals clucked, but it turns out even we've been outbid. With yesterday's fiscal 2010 budget proposal, President Obama is attempting not merely to expand the role of the federal government but to put it in such a dominant position that its power can never be rolled back.
Read the whole thing, here. The Democrats are moving very fast: Right now they can still blame the recession on George W. Bush while ferverishly hastening the shift to "a very different country."

Hat Tip:
Memeorandum.

This budget is pure insanity. Can you imagine that the next fiscal year we will borrow two trillion dollars? I am asking my Congressman:
where is the "due diligence". What has he become, a rubber stamp, like some tin pot dictators legisature?

The unintended consequences are going to be a disaster.

Pure insanity ... you said it, Norm.

Actually it makes perfect sense. With a deficit this high they HAVE to raise taxes and put in place more entitlement programs to help everyone who will lose their job as a result of those tax increases on the ebil rich people and those ebil greedy companies.

These are the same people who allowed Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to crash and burn after all...
