Is that in doubt? The Wall Street Journal reported late Sunday night that Barack Obama doesn't think we have a spending problem, or at least that's what John Boehner told Stephen Moore about Obama's response to the fiscal cliff:

What stunned House Speaker John Boehner more than anything else during his prolonged closed-door budget negotiations with Barack Obama was this revelation: "At one point several weeks ago," Mr. Boehner says, "the president said to me, 'We don't have a spending problem.' " ... The president's insistence that Washington doesn't have a spending problem, Mr. Boehner says, is predicated on the belief that massive federal deficits stem from what Mr. Obama called "a health-care problem." Mr. Boehner says that after he recovered from his astonishment-"They blame all of the fiscal woes on our health-care system"-he replied: "Clearly we have a health-care problem, which is about to get worse with ObamaCare. But, Mr. President, we have a very serious spending problem." He repeated this message so often, he says, that toward the end of the negotiations, the president became irritated and said: "I'm getting tired of hearing you say that."

Take a moment from your regularly scheduled dose of daily optimism, and look on the dark side.

The recent political events in Greece, in which a stable government was not formed, requiring whole new rounds of voting, have received some attention on the nightly news. But there's still a feeling of "it can't happen here." That's a great disservice. Because it can happen here. And this is not just "political instability." We're not talking about a political hot potato going nuclear. We're talking about complete financial implosion. That's what happens when government is involved in everything.

Many Minnesota schools and youth-serving agencies are being asked to make significant cuts.

Is it outrageous to see a superintendent leaving a district with more than $200,000, along with medical expenses paid until he's 70- Are some teachers ineffective- Do some schools need better ways to evaluate and remove ineffective teachers- Yes, yes and yes.

Campaigns are won with message, money, and organization, and all Ryan has right now is a message.

But that doesn't mean he wouldn't be able to appeal to a broad spectrum of Republicans and independents, and crossover Dems in those states that allow crossover voting. Our good friend Phil Klein seems to argue that Ryan has nowhere to go, in terms of voter groups. I usually admire Phil's political judgment, but not here. Ryan's record and persona mean that he is one of the few candidates that can pull from multiple voter groups at once.

A Seattle prankster points out the absurdity of a little-known program that's following where you drive.

One morning last week, 38-year-old software developer Phil Mocek was walking to work in Seattle when he paused to photograph what appeared to be civilian vehicles parked in a restricted area near a downtown federal building. He snapped a few pictures and began walking away, when a white truck whipped out of one of the parking spots and pulled up perpendicular to the curb. A large man wearing jeans and a gray T-shirt emerged from the cab and angrily grabbed the camera from Mocek, who hollered for help and fumbled with his phone to dial 911. Police quickly arrived on the scene, responding to Mocek's report of a possible robbery. The black male suspect identified himself as an agent for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and told the officers that he was concerned about Mocek posting images of his vehicle online due to the nature of his job. The ATF agent explained that he had confiscated the camera and examined its contents because he "wanted to delete the picture that was taken of him." Nobody was arrested.

Sometimes the Internet makes a mistake.

The other day, one of my favorite websites embedded a Fox News video about NSA spying. Fox News entitles their video "Citizens Treated As Suspects." At the site showcasing Fox's story, though, the headline reads: "The NSA Grabs Information from Non-Suspects; Ninety percent of those spied upon are under no suspicion." Can this be right? When you're treated as a suspect, you are a suspect, aren't you? You're being suspected of ... something. At least of being somebody who might be up to something worth snagging in an all-embracing fishing expedition. If you're not guilty, somebody else leaving comparable data traces is, surely.

We recently did a study of Internet users around the world and found out something that didn't surprise us.

About 8 out of 10 people, 77%, believe that the videos, pictures and data on their phones are more valuable than the phones themselves. Our phones have replaces so many devices it's nearly impossible to count. They're our constant companion and probably hold more secrets about us than our best friends. Here's how to protect the content on your phone...

While the economic malfeasance of agricultural subsidies may be relatively low on the totem pole of the federal government's massively wasteful and intrusive spending binge (we've definitely got some bigger fish to fry), they are in and of themselves astoundingly terrible ideas that come with a whole host of neighborhood effects.

The plot thickens: The latest batch of (significantly redacted!) emails released last week revealed that, not only did former EPA chief Lisa Jackson make frequent use of an alias "Richard Windsor" email account to conduct government business, but that she supplemented that account with yet another account registered with the New Jersey government from her old job.

Not surprisingly, Ohlson claims he knew nothing, even though he worked with Holder from January 2009 to January 2011 and received routine courtesy copies of weekly reports that referred to Fast and Furious by name.

Eric Holder's former chief of staff, Kevin Ohlson, would like to be confirmed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces - but some senators - chief among them John McCain - want to know what he knew about Operation Fast and Furious before they'll grant him their stamp of approval.
