By now, you would think the president has learned his lesson: haphazard government spending cannot fix the economy. But in his budget unveiled Monday, Obama called for billions more in additional stimulus-style spending. At a time when Americans are demanding a more effective, more efficient government, he has chosen to increase spending and increase taxes.

That's not the recipe for economic recovery. The stimulus proved that much. Now is not the time for more of the same; now is the time for new leadership—a Republican president who understands the roles of government and the free market. In November, we can elect that president. And that would be a milestone worth celebrating.
