I just presented my wife with a proposal that I buy me a shiny new car I can’t afford. I asked her if she is going to put family first and approve my proposal now.Click on Patterico.com above for the comments.
It is a bipartisan proposal, even though she doesn’t agree with it, because the word bipartisan sounds good.
And it won’t cost us a cent, because my proposal pays for the car, through unspecified cuts in the “out years.”
One of my bipartisan proposals to pay for my shiny new car includes my wife taking on a second job and not spending any money on new clothes.
She’s not buying my proposal. In fact, there is no such proposal. I made it up for rhetorical purposes. Not that I’m that enamored of my 11-year-old car with 130,000 miles. Here’s the problem. I’m not going to do something we can’t afford and justify it with phony arguments and lies.
Read that last sentence out loud three times, Mr. President.
Sounded nice, huh?
That would have been a better speech.
