Not an April Fools’ joke: Obama announces National Financial Capability Month

This is a real thing that is really happening. For real.

CNS News:

President Barack Obama, who has increased the national debt by $53,377 per household, has proclaimed April “National Financial Capability Month,” during which his administration will do things such as teach young people “how to budget responsibly.”

“I call upon all Americans to observe this month with programs and activities to improve their understanding of financial principles and practices,” Obama said in an official proclamation released Friday…

The president is required by law to submit a budget proposal for the next fiscal year by the first Monday in February.

Thus far, Obama has not submitted his budget proposal for fiscal 2014.

Every day, I stop to look behind me. But no, I did not just step through a looking glass.

The White House did do an April Fool’s prank, of sorts:

So, at least one child can still get a tour of the White House.

Cute kid. Too bad he and his little pals will be getting stuck with the bill.

Update: Thanks to Allahpundit for pointing out the following metaphor for the Obama administration, both Barry’s performance and the reaction of his increasingly nervous sycophants.

Their relief when he finally manages to do something right is palpable. Just like always.
