President Bush visited New Hampshire today to talk about his proposed budget.
The right-leaning Union Leader ran an editorial today that concluded, "Mr. President, you are not fooling anyone. Stop these short-term political games and give us a budget that brings federal spending down to a sustainable level. Don't let the American people down by passing this problem on to our children."
The middle of the road Nashua Telegraph editorialized, "Your administration says the nation is still on course to reduce the deficit in half by 2009. It sounds much too good to be true. And while we're at it, some of those cuts, especially in Medicare and Medicaid programs, as well as for education, could impact our state budget severely. Lowering federal responsibilities by hiking state or local budgets is a deceptive way to achieve deficit reduction."
And the Portsmouth Herald ran an editorial saying "We are concerned about your priorities and find it hard to understand why you would seemingly sacrifice government aid to the nation's most needy for the sake of building up armed forces that are already the strongest in the world.... There is a trust issue involved here, Mr. President."
