Obama's Speech - Waste, Fraud and Abuse

Quoting James Taranto
at The Wall Street Journal
(emphasis mine):
“Even by the standards of the World's Greatest Orator, yesterday's was a dreadful speech

Obama said he was going to start ‘by being honest about what's causing our deficit.’ It's hard to cut spending: ‘You see, most Americans tend to dislike government spending in the abstract, but like the stuff that it buys.’ It's hard to raise taxes: ‘My finely honed political instincts tell me that almost nobody believes they should be paying higher taxes.’ And politicians are selling voters a bill of goods when they ‘feed the impression that solving the problem is just a matter of eliminating waste and abuse.’

What's needed, he claimed, is ‘a serious plan’ that will ‘require tough choices.’ He then outlined a four-step ‘approach’--it wasn't detailed enough to achieve planhood--that showed his promise of honesty to be an utter fraud.
