Obama's Parsimony

Accusing Obama of stinginess seems strange on the face of it, but consider:

(a) The Obama Administration has been reluctant to spend BP's money to enhance the clean-up effort in the Gulf of Mexico.

(b) Obama has cut NASA's budget. Instead he has NASA attempting group therapy so that the Muslim world can feel good about themselves. (Yes, I know Obama has promised more money in the future. But $6 billion isn't much, and who really believes that Obama's budget commission won't cut that and more from NASA's budget this fall?)

(c) Obama has been very reluctant to spend any money to enforce the nation's immigration laws.
