Obama actually used the monopoly line for his health care rally in St. Charles, Mo:
As we were driving in, I was saying, boy, it’s just good to be back in the Midwest, this is about as close as I’ve been to home in a while.
Dude…you grew up in Indonesia and Hawaii…who do you think you’re kidding?
And part of the reason it’s just good to be back is because Washington is a place where tax dollars are often treated like Monopoly money — they’re bartered and traded, and they’re divvied up among lobbyists and special interests, and where waste — even billions of dollars of waste — is accepted as the price of doing business. When we proposed, by the way, those $20 billion in cuts last year, we were ridiculed by the press, said, “Ah, that’s just a spit in the bucket.” Now, I don’t know about here in St. Charles, $20 billion, that’s real money, isn’t it?
It’s kinda funny that President Fancypants chose to drop such a disingenuous line in Missouri, “the show me state”:
The phrase “I’m from Missouri” means I’m skeptical of the matter and not easily convinced. This is related to the state’s unofficial motto of “Show Me,” whose origin is popularly ascribed to an 1899 speech by Congressman Willard Vandiver, who declared that “I come from a country that raises corn and cotton, cockleburs and Democrats, and frothy eloquence neither convinces nor satisfies me. I’m from Missouri, and you have got to show me.“
Obama likes to strike a pose of fiscal responsibility, but I can’t imagine too many people being fooled by it. His party runs Washington, for crying out loud… The disturbing reality is, Obama’s deficit spending for one month beats Bush’s for an entire year.
He will spend more this year on Welfare, than Bush spent in eight years for the Iraq war.
“Fiscal hawk”, Obama started off his Presidency, last year with several bloated spending bills, the Stimulus, Omnibus, and GIVE and SERVE acts, inspiring thousands of alarmed Americans to take to the streets…
In fact, one of the first signs I made to protest his God-awful spending policies involved monopoly money:

Gateway Pundit notes that Obama likes to drop the Monopoly money line whenever he’s on the verge of passing another massive spending bill.
Matt Welch at Reason calls the above paragraph, “gag inducing “.
That it is.
You can check out the photoshops at Gateway Pundit and Reason for palate cleansers.
The Blogging Professor: Priorities: Monthly deficit hits $220 billion, highest in U.S. history. Senate ObamaCare bill supposed to cut deficit by $132 billion over 10 years!
The more I think about this, the more annoyed I get. He really does think we’re stupid. And he doesn’t care what we think.
I realize that Obama’s supporters love the idea of massive federal spending on domestic programs….but can they at least see the rank hypocrisy of Obama pretending to disapprove of it? Can they not see that a man capable of such whoppers is not somebody worthy of their trust?
Speaking of the GIVE Act, Atlas Shrugs has the creepy latest:
