California spending will do that soon. Big spender Arnold should soon be forced to actually cut and make real decisions on priorities. He's been a colossal failure and disappointment as for a few years he's been a rubber stamp for squandering the State's wealth.
The Boston Globe might do that soon, too. The left-wing militant Newspaper Guild (a union) has rejected pay cuts necessary to stop the bleeding. Notably, the true "workers" - viz. printers and drivers - agreed to cuts, but the leftist intellectual writers did not. So much for Marx. I have personally despised the Boston Globe writing for decades, so "good riddance" if the paper closes.
Obama says he will "create or save" 600,000 jobs over the next 100 days. Sure. Talk is easy.
And from WSJ: "The Obama administration is backing away from seeking a major reduction in the number of agencies overseeing financial markets, people familiar with the matter say, ..."
A great opportunity is being squandered.
Here's the new name for Obama: "La Grande Bouche". Big Mouth. All talk, no action.

Gueule means mouth or face: 1. "ferme ta gueule!" = Shut up!* ; "ta gueule!" = get stuffed!** "un fort en gueule" or "un grande gueule" = loudmouth; 2. face - "il a une belle gueule" = he's good looking; "gueule de raie" = fish-face**; 3. (d'animal) mouth; 4. mouth, muzzle. "gueule de bois*" = hangover (literally, a face of wood).
La Phrase: Trop boire peut causer une gueule de bois.

Note: The unabridged dictionaries I use make a low or insulting term as * and a vulgar term as **. An obscene term gets ***.
