Not only does he botch the name of Republican Governor Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota, but he also goes out of his way to change "our fellow citizens" to "my fellow citizens". White House, Aug. 2, 2007

Only in Washington can 22 billion dollars be called a very small difference. And that difference will keep getting bigger. Over the next five years it will total nearly 205 billion dollars in additional discretionary spending. That 205 billion dollars averages out to about 112 million dollars per day, 4.7 million dollars per hour, 78,000 dollars per minute.

That's a lot of money even for career politicians in Washington. In fact, at that pace, Democrats in Congress would have spent an extra 300,000 dollars since I began these remarks.
