we have a spending problem.... simple as that.

No doubt Obama inherited a problem by spend happy Bush, but spending more on silliness, passing harmful legislation, and not admitting that congress was liberal during some of that time is just plain selective hindsight.
To put it another way: Expecting Government to solve these problems is like asking Col. Sanders to lead our national effort to stop the slaughter of chickens.
