As you will read below, it's between "Economy and Liberty, or Profusion and Servitude." One is in the spirit of the Constitutional, one is not. That's what American's have to decide this fall. It's not about Obama, per se, but which direction we want to see America headed.
Obama's Budget Blather
Will Republicans reverse Liberty's slide into the socialist abyss?

More likely, the 2012 election will be a referendum on Republican leadership unless they renew their commitment to abide by their constitutional oaths, and, accordingly, make the case that the only path to restore our economy and ensure prosperity for all is to, first and foremost, restore the integrity of our Constitution.
If the federal government collected taxes only for expenditures specifically authorized by our Constitution, our nation would not be on the verge of economic insolvency and dissolution. The only way to restore Rule of Law is if John Boehner and his fellow Republicans in the House and Senate will comport with their oaths.
As Thomas Jefferson proclaimed, "The multiplication of public offices, increase of expense beyond income, growth and entailment of a public debt are indications soliciting the employment of the pruning knife." Jefferson understood the consequences of unbearable debt, and insisted, "We must make our election between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude."
It's not just a Republican verses Democrat debate this fall. It's the Constitution verses (as Jefferson put it) Servitude... Or insolvency. To my mind, they're both different sides of the same coin.
