This post is in response to Bob’s post – Who is This Guy and Bob’s analysis of President Obama’s deficit reduction speech.
I had lunch with an older gentleman on Friday and when I am short of things to talk about I will mention our family blog. I told him that one of Bob’s latest posts was about President Obama’s deficit reduction speech and that Bob didn’t feel the president pointed out enough specifics as to how they planned on reducing the deficit.
The older gentleman’s response was “Jim no one gives a crap about how the president is gonna do it they just want to know that he is gonna do it”. He followed that up with “besides if the president did give us specifics most of us probably wouldn’t understand the specifics anyway so why should he mention them”.
I totally agree – Bob here’s the White House fact sheet if you want to dive into seven pages of specifics addressing the tough cuts and savings they hope to achieve in the coming years. Enjoy !
