Obama’s $410 Billion Mardis Gras

It’s Fat Tuesday and terribly fitting that President Obama should roll out his $410 billion,big, fat, pork-laden spending plans for you, America!

Including these items, found by Sen. Jim DeMint staffer Tom Jones:

*Tattoo removal program

*Money for Maine lobsters

*Promotion of astronomy in Hawaii

*Money to combat bullying

*Totally Teen Zone (Wii and Xbox, DJ, and snack booth)

*Money to study seals

Play “Find the Pork” yourself here.

Tonight we’ll see, if given ANOTHER chance, Obama will be able to conjure up any of his campaign-style messages of HOPE for the American economy.

You know, like:

“We start 2009 in the midst of a crisis unlike any we have seen in our lifetime…”- Barack Obama (1/8/09)

“…this recession could linger for years. The unemployment rate could reach double digits. Our economy could fall $1 trillion short of its full capacity.” –Barack Obama (1/8/09)

…a bad situation could become dramatically worse.” –Barack Obama (1/8/09)

“…only government can provide the short-term boost necessary to lift us from a recession this deep and severe.” -Barack Obama (1/8/09)

Or, my personal favorite:

“Never let a serious crisis go to waste. What I mean by that is it’s an opportunity to do things you couldn’t do before.” -Rahm Emanuel (11/9/08 )

You know, like socialize, er, CHANGE, America…

By the way, is Nancy Pelosi done writing that speech yet?
