The budget, which will delivered to Congress on Monday, projects the deficit at $1.33 trillion this fiscal year

,,,

Obama pledged in 2009 to have halved the deficit by next year, and his failure to deliver has provided Republicans with ammunition as they seek to deny him a second term by portraying him as old style tax and spend liberal.
President Barack Obama has repeatedly claimed that his budget would cut the deficit by half by the end of his term. But as Heritage analyst Brian Riedl has pointed out, given that Obama has already helped quadruple the deficit with his stimulus package, pledging to halve it by 2013 is a joke.

Didn't he also claim that if he hadn't turned the economy around by year three, he would not seek reelection?

You can't believe a damn thing this man says. He's a compulsive and habitual liar.

But the "new" spending is paid for, right......:???:

2/13/10

President Barack Obama is hailing pay-as-you-go budget legislation he signed Friday night as one in a series of crucial steps needed to snap Washington out of a destructive pattern of overspending.

“Now, Congress will have to pay for what it spends, just like everybody else,” Obama said in his radio and Internet address released Saturday morning. “After a decade of profligacy, the American people are tired of politicians who talk the talk but don’t walk the walk when it comes to fiscal responsibility. It’s easy to get up in front of the cameras and rant against exploding deficits. What’s hard is actually getting deficits under control. But that’s what we must do.”
