This from Andy Sullivan via Reuters in his article titled, Analysis: Budget constraints limit Obama’s second-term agenda, comes this unintentionally hilarious howler:
Since taking office in 2009, Obama has tried to balance his belief in an active government with concerns that the nation’s finances are on an unsustainable course.
Classic. I assume the hilarity is unintentional. Andy’s probably swallowed Obama’s occasional verbal sops to fiscal restraint and typed that sentence with a straight face.
Since rising to stardom, Lindsey Lohan has tried to balance her belief in a hard-partying lifestyle with concerns that her career is on an unsustainable course.
The possibilities are endless.
This video pretty aptly sums up Obama’s balance between belief in an active government and concern for the nation’s finances.
