Hmmmm.  This strikes me as rather an odd remark for Obama to make.

After all, he has previously criticized the Republicans for deficit
spending. It is not a sudden new discovery for him. And it is his huge
deficit budget which is causing the future problems.

Is he a hypocrite?

Or, maybe, after his 100 days, he is realizing that he has been led by
the nose by all the crooked financiers and he is starting a push back
against them.
