Another deficit reduction commission

Yesterday, Obama set up another deficit reduction panel.

President Obama created an 18-member fiscal commission Thursday charged with coming up with ideas to begin erasing $14.3 trillion in government red ink.

"These are tough times, and we can't keep spending like they're not," Obama said.

In the words of Chuck Todd of MSNBC, "Obama wants to be seen doing something about the deficit".

That's the problem.

Everyone knows he doesn't care about the deficit.

He just wants to be "seen" doing something about it.
