Has there ever been a bigger hypocrite than Barack Obama?

Before you answer that question, consider on the one hand this story where Obama says out of one side of his mouth that he supports "pay-as-you-go" legislation, which would require that every new dollar spent or tax cut given* would be accounted for by a corresponding spending cut elsewhere in the budget.  

And then consider, on the other hand, this story pointing out that Obama actually has already carved out 2.5 trillion (that's trillion with a T) dollars in exceptions to the "pay-as-you-go" rule for his spending priorities.

Now, feel free, to answer the question posed.

*Note . . . SLC does recognize that tax cuts actually generate more tax dollars collected by stimulating the economy.  Unfortunately, no Democrat since John F. Kennedy seems to recognize that fact.

Probably Caiaphas. Other than that, who knows?
