Don't let Obama fool us twice

President Obama doesn't seem to care how he spends taxpayers' money. Two years ago, he took us for almost $800 billion (that's "billion," folks, with a "B") with his "American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009."

Remember all those "shovel-ready" jobs he talked about?

Now, he wants us to pony up another $447 billion to create more phantom jobs.

How's that saying go? "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice.... "
