What an Obama Spending Crack Down Looks Like

The White House today announced they are “cracking down” on conference spending – capping all conferences at the low, low price of $500,000 (unless they are granted “special permission”). Please consider the following response from the RNC:   “At $500,000 per conference, “Debt King” Obama is setting such a strict spending limit that next year’s GSA conference will be forced to decide: mindreader or magician, not both....

Will Team Obama come clean on new ad?

There are a few questions about Obama’s latest ad. Obama claimed to have helped the star of his latest ad campaign get a job even though his Facebook page says he was employed since 2006. Can Team Obama verify they helped him with his job? It’s interesting his Facebook page would change when questions were asked. Also, is this the best Stimulus success story the administration can point to? A company that took $299 million in taxpayer dollars only to close a factory and outsource ...
