Days after signing a record DoD budget, Obama is going to ask for another $33bn in 'emergency war funding'. Shades of Feckless Leader! And I had remembered that Obama had made a big point to end this type of off budget trickery, but my memory isn't what it used to be, after all, we have always been at war with Eurasia, right?

Somehow, the following paragraph was reported as being in the last State of the Union speech by Fettered Leader, and my memory recalled the same, but we both must be mistaken in remembering this:
Finally, because we’re also suffering from a deficit of trust, I am committed to restoring a sense of honesty and accountability to our budget.  That is why this budget looks ahead ten years and accounts for spending that was left out under the old rules – and for the first time, that includes the full cost of fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.  For seven years, we have been a nation at war.  No longer will we hide its price.
Sorry about that, and the White House should hurry up and correct the faulty record they have of the speech.
