During the State of the Union address, as well as many other speeches he's given over the past four years, this President emphatically continues to state that his programs - his investments in America - "should not add one single dime to the deficit".
Through tears, I watched the SOTU speech and when I heard this statement repeated once again, I was reminded of the scene in the movie Blazing Saddles during which, a posse was riding out after their man. Coming upon a makeshift toll bridge, the posse stops. The sheriff then yells out for "someone to go back to town and get a $#!+ load of dimes.
That, in a nutshell, is America today. This country, and all of its spending issues, is merely a posse looking for a whole lot of dimes to get across Obama's toll bridge!
