“The Brain” Says Spain Should Mainly Try to Rein

Yesterday, President Obama spoke with Spain’s Prime Minister Zapatero, encouraging him to curb spending:

“US President Barack Obama spoke to Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero Tuesday on the debt crisis and discussed reforms needed to rescue the Spanish economy, the White House said.”

Rob Port of Say Anything wins the Grand Rants Calling A Spade A Spade Award with his post: Hypocrite: Obama Calls On Spain To Rein In Government Debt. :

The leaders “discussed the importance of Spain taking resolute action as part of Europe’s effort to strengthen its economy and build market confidence…

Port notes ironically:

Yesterday the Obama administration announced a 7.4% hike in its deficit projection for 2010 to $1.26 trillion. Spain’s entire economy, the nation’s gross domestic product, is $1.6 trillion. The national debt Obama is running in one year is roughly 79% of Spain’s entire economy.

By Jove, I think he’s got it!
