Dear Mr. President

Mr. President,
I expect you to be a man of your word.

You said in your last State of the Union Address on January 28, 2008:

And members of Congress should know: If any bill raises taxes reaches my desk, I will veto it. (Applause.)

Just as we trust Americans with their own money, we need to earn their trust by spending their tax dollars wisely.

The people’s trust in their government is undermined by congressional earmarks — special interest projects that are often snuck in at the last minute, without discussion or debate. Last year, I asked you to voluntarily cut the number and cost of earmarks in half. I also asked you to stop slipping earmarks into committee reports that never even come to a vote. Unfortunately, neither goal was met. So this time, if you send me an appropriations bill that does not cut the number and cost of earmarks in half, I’ll send it back to you with my veto. (Applause.)

    I’ve observed that most liars have cunning intelligence, I’m afraid this individual is just a run of the mill dunce. He does not even know what he says from year to year.

    He is fool, the court jester in a monarchy who sits with the crown on his head while the real power rests with people whose wealth and power is NEVER threatened.
