Michael Walsh: Time to end the spending shell game

Michael Walsh is in-studio today and we’ll be discussing his New York Post article out this morning. He’s also promoting the release of one of his earlier novels available for your Kindle and Kindle apps.

Walsh is pointing out the the spending shell game.

The country teeters on the edge of bankruptcy, operating without a budget for the current fiscal year while Congress debates relatively minuscule spending cuts and President Obama fills in his March Madness brackets, lectures the nation on school bullying and prepares for a trip to Rio.

Just yesterday, I figured that in February we were running a deficit of more than $10 billion every business day and Congress is talking about $6 billion in total cuts. Are they kidding?


By the way, Walsh has released one of his novels on Amazon for the Kindle a few days ago. EXCHANGE ALLEY can be picked up for only 99 cents. From the Amazon review…

Was there a link between Lee Harvey Oswald’s years in Russia and the J.F.K. assassination? In this stylish, darkly twisted debut thriller by a former music writer for Time magazine, New York police detective Francis X. Byrne uncovers just such a connection as he probes the grisly murder of a kinky Danish diplomat. Byrne also finds that his own FBI agent brother and their Polish American mother are important pieces of the puzzle.

    We need a leader who seriously wants to tackle the issues that face us now and in the future.  Heard an interesting comment today and it is so true, President Obama has, so far, been a wonderful first lady.  He seems very comfortable doing those king of duties.

      I have to agree with that.

      I am reminded of the 2008 dem primary campaign when people were speculating as to what type of first lady Bill Clinton would be if Hillary became president. Honestly, I think we are witnessing that in BHO now.  All the Hollywood and motown and sports gaylas, along with the "bullying" summits, beer summits, and the "NObel prize for nothing" are exactly what I would expect from a first lady Bill Clinton.

    We've gone from "the buck stops here" to "just print up more bucks (and sell more debt to the Chinese)"…
