Tonight I listened to Reagan's first inaugural address and how he talked about how governments bankrupt future generations. It reminded me that Obama has really been given the kid glove treatment and nobody has called him to account for the millstone he is putting around the necks of future generations. The love-in continues, despite the fact that he is pursuing some really destructive and dangerous economic policies.

He is racking up debt in this one budget that we will never see paid off in our lifetimes.

The following is from Reagan's 1981 inaugural address, but it applies equally to what is happening in Washington today:

"The business of our nation goes forward. These United States are confronted with an economic affliction of great proportions. We suffer from the longest and one of the worst sustained inflations in our national history. It distorts our economic decisions, penalizes thrift, and crushes the struggling young and the fixed-income elderly alike. It threatens to shatter the lives of millions of our people.

"Idle industries have cast workers into unemployment, causing human misery and personal indignity. Those who do work are denied a fair return for their labor by a tax system which penalizes successful achievement and keeps us from maintaining full productivity.

"But great as our tax burden is, it has not kept pace with public spending. For decades, we have piled deficit upon deficit, mortgaging our future and our children's future for the temporary convenience of the present. To continue this long trend is to guarantee tremendous social, cultural, political, and economic upheavals.

"You and I, as individuals, can, by borrowing, live beyond our means, but for only a limited period of time. Why, then, should we think that collectively, as a nation, we are not bound by that same limitation?


"We must act today in order to preserve tomorrow. And let there be no misunderstanding—we are going to begin to act, beginning today.

"The economic ills we suffer have come upon us over several decades. They will not go away in days, weeks, or months, but they will go away. They will go away because we, as Americans, have the capacity now, as we have had in the past, to do whatever needs to be done to preserve this last and greatest bastion of freedom.

"In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem. Government is the problem."
