McCain: "So much for change, Mr. President"

As the Associated Press reminds us, Barack Obama campaigned on the promise to go "line by line" to remove earmarks from porkified legislation.
McCain's attempt to strip out an estimated 8,500 earmarks failed on a vote of 63-32. The Arizona senator's proposal also would have cut roughly $32 billion from the measure and kept spending at last year's levels in several federal agencies.

Last year's Republican presidential candidate said both he and Obama pledged during the campaign to "stop business as usual in Washington," and he quoted the president as having said he would go line by line to make sure money was spent wisely.

The White House has said that Obama intends to sign the legislation, casting it as leftover business from 2008.
Proving Barack Obama is a liar.

Oh, and he wants to effectively limit how much "the rich" will be able to deduct in contributing to charity. Even Charlie Rangel is balking at the dangerous implications of this one.

What is wrong with this man's soul?

You remember the preview for the movie The Blob where all of movie goers run out of the theatre screaming? That will be the Obama supporters as they realize more and more that he is coming for their money too! (Unfortunately, by then I'll be broke and living on a park bench - which, hey, means Obama will help me! Cool!)
