A Telling Tactic

This is an interesting article and goes to the root of the Bush Administrations behaviour. It explains that we'll have a record budget deficit. No surprise, we know the neo-conservatives in office wouldn't know "fiscal conservatism" if it bit them in the ass. But the interesting part about the article is oddly Orwellian.

The administration sees the budget projection coming, they inflate the deficit number, bring reporters in and tell them the inflated number. Then they come in with the actual estimate at the end of the year and claim to be heroes because the number wasn't as high as their inflated estimate.

It's just changing history in advance and they've done it every time.

Dishonesty runs amok.
