President Obama, after spending hundreds of billions his first year, now is seeking a partial three-year federal spending freeze that would reduce budgets by less than 1 percent.
The drop-in-the-bucket nature of the president\’s proposal was underscored Tuesday by a Congressional Budget Office estimate projecting the 2010 federal deficit to hit $1.35 trillion — Obama\’s spending freeze would be expected to save up to $15 billion the first year.
The president will propose the congressional freeze on \”non-security\” spending in his State of the Union address Wednesday night, senior administration officials said. The freeze, which would apply to annual spending on day-to-day government, appears to be an attempt to answer widespread voter concern about rising deficits and debt.

Obama on the road Friday, at a town hall in Elyria, Ohio, takes on a new combative tack in confronting the health-care debacle and accusations he has taken his eye off the economy (supposed cause of the Massachusetts setback). In more blatantly identifying himself as a fighter – something his policies already show to be true – Obama is embracing the same tactic by which Hillary Clinton turned around her race for the nomination, winning big-state primaries Ohio and Pennsylvania and nearly capturing the prize.
