Clue to the Daily Beast or Newsweek or whatever you're calling yourselves these days... The term 'Big Spender' is defined by the amount of money one spends, and Obama's spending binge is not excused by his (forced) agreement to keep the Bush-era tax cuts.

In fact, isn't it odd that liberals are arguing that tax cuts somehow mitigate increases in government spending, given that they're the ones who basically view tax cuts as government spending? In their view, tax cuts only add to the amount of spending, they don't reduce it.

But even if you ignore that little inconsistency, their complaint just doesn't register. It's almost as if they're claiming that it's okay to gamble away or spend on drugs half of what you make so long as you spend an equal amount of money on something else.
