Show Me the Money -- Not Spent

Instapundit posts that porkbusters are glad that the President will include a reference to earmark reform in his State of the Union address set to begin shortly. One supposes that it is impolite to criticize the President for coming late to this party, but the words ring hollow given his six years of routinely signing inflated spending bills and otherwise exercising no real leadership on this issue. The Republicans once virtually owned the cause of fiscal restraint. Today, largely due to the excesses of Republican governance, no one who is not a partisan really believes the rhetoric any more.

The Oracle dislikes the annual grocery list that goes by the name "State of the Union," regardless of who is delivering it, and has not decided whether to turn on the television.
