Obama’s weak snort at pork

Earmarks buried in a $410 billion spending bill now before Congress aren’t all ‘pork’ — spending of dubious value. And they total less than 2 percent of the bill’s cost. So why would their passage be such a rite of passage for President Obama? Many Americans seem ready for Mr. Obama to veto this bill as proof he will exercise the fiscal discipline he so often promised in his campaign and continues to advocate. They already have doubts about his $787 billion stimulus bill that received scant review in Congress before being passed and is likely laced with poorly thought-out mandates to spend. These earmarks add insult to injury. When will the president stand up and say thus far and no farther to such dubious spending?
