OBAMA TELLS DAVID LETTERMAN HE DOESN'T KNOW HOW MUCH THE NATIONAL DEBT IS
THE FREEDOM POST ^ | September 19, 2012

Posted on 09/19/2012 9:31:59 AM PDT by SaveOurRepublicFromTyranny

VIDEO: Barack Obama tells David Letterman he doesn't remember how much the national debt is (either he's lying or he doesn't want to remind everyone how gargantuan it is), blames Bush, and plays the class warfare card.

That doesn't surprise me AT ALL!

Obama is not smart, it's just that the MSM try to make him look smart like they do all Democrat liberals.

You can’t expect much information from these two really dumb, over-paid “entertainers.” Maybe BO can be a talk show host after Jan. ‘13. He certainly loves to hear his own voice.

Good God!

Some people think Bill Clinton is the master BS artist, but I’m beginning to realize Obama has even less talent and makes up the difference with more lies.

That's astonishing. He sounds like he literally doesn't know the amount, or the difference between deficit and debt, or how it got that way.

He literally sounds like he doesn't understand. I wonder if they have meetings about it, try to explain the budget to him, or if he's off in some other world.

Do you remember when Obama was asked about the economy as he was walking off the plane? His response was a shrug of the shoulders and a smile on his face and a very cavalier “We’re broke” as he walked away. I hope the Republicans have that video and use it in their ads along with a collection of his other economy-related gaffes. Obama knows nothing about economics and cares less.

I never heard where he said he didn’t know how much it was...he didn’t address the amount, nor was he asked the amount.

His explanation of why we have this debt is laughable......Bush’s fault and the rich are not taxed enough!

Obama has a numeracy problem. He has said so himself.

When he said there were 57 states the same week he said 10,000 people were killed by a tornado.

The Romney campaign should exploit this deficiency during the debate.

Obama is a typical Liberal Arts dunce.

On July 15, 2011 Obama also said ‘I’ll be turning 50 in a week’. Perhaps he forgot what the birth date was on the birth record he stole from a deceased baby (Virginia Sunahara). Funny how the State of Hawaii STILL will not allow her brother, Duncan, to see her original birth record.

For some time many of us have wondered just who is Jack Schitt? aka Obama

> > We find ourselves at a loss when someone says, 'You don't know Jack Schitt!' Well, thanks to my genealogy efforts, you can now respond in an intellectual way.

> > Jack Schitt is the only son of Awe Schitt. Awe Schitt, the fertilizer magnate, married O. Schitt, the owner of Needeep N. Schitt, Inc. They had one son, Jack.

> > In turn, Jack Schitt married Noe Schitt. The deeply religious couple produced six children: Holie Schitt, Giva Schitt, Fulla Schitt, Bull Schitt, and the twins Deep Schitt and Dip Schitt.

> > Against her parents' objections, Deep Schitt married Dumb Schitt, a high school dropout. After being married 15 years, Jack and Noe Schitt divorced.

> > Noe Schitt later married Ted Sherlock, and because her kids were living with them, she wanted to keep her previous name. She was then known as Noe Schitt Sherlock.

> > Meanwhile, Dip Schitt married Loda Schitt, and they produced a son with a rather nervous disposition named Chicken Schitt. Two of the other six children, Fulla Schitt and Giva Schitt, were inseparable throughout childhood and subsequently married the Happens brothers in a dual ceremony.

> > The wedding announcement in the newspaper announced the Schitt-Happens nuptials. The Schitt-Happens children were Dawg, Byrd, and Horse.

> > Bull Schitt, the prodigal son, left home to tour the world. He recently returned from Italy with his new Italian bride, Pisa Schitt.

> > Now when someone says, 'You don't know Jack Schitt,' you can correct them.

> > Sincerely, > Crock O. Schitt > >

It is at about 2 minute mark....Letterman... “Do you remember that number, was ,was it $10 Trillion? Obama.....”No, I don’t remember what the number was precisely”

Weasel Obama will fall back on the work ‘precisely’, but the fact that Letterman threw out $10 trillion and Obama did not correct him and say it was much higher is proor he is clueless. Also, it would be IMPOSSIBLE to know ‘precisely’ what the number was, because it is not a constant and goes up by $2 million PER MINUTE.

I noticed this at the Dim convention. Clinton gave a speech and it was clear he had a grasp of the dim "facts". Barry just gave his standard TOTUS dribble. Nothing "there". There is just nothing going on between those jug ears. Only his race prevents people from talking about it. How he got through Harvard I have no idea.

I saw Obamugabe on Letterman's "Hate Show" last night (see NautiNurse's graphic above).

The One got an entire hour with Letterman (a free infomercial for Obama - no other guests), and the audience gave him an enthusiastic Standing O.

Not only did Obamugabe "not know" (nor mention) how much the National Debt is, he repeated the LIE that the murders in Libya (and all of the Muslim uprisings across the world) were "because of the video criticizing 'The Prophet Mohammed'".

He also blamed "the previous administration" and his "two expensive wars", etc. on the financial woes he inherited, and blamed Republicans for the "gridlock" in Washington.

He got lots of applause when he subtly criticized Romney for his "47%" comments. "When you're president, you're President of all people, not just some.." yada yada yada

Amazingly, Letterman reminded him of "comments he made about folks in Pennsylvania" at a fundraiser in 2008. Obama said he "made a mistake, and apologized for those comments".

The Letterman show is taped "live to tape" between 5:30 - 6:30pm ET (I assume this was the case yesterday unless Obama had some special deal). After the Letterman gig, this was Obama's next stop:

I don’t know if he knows what the debt is.

But it is obvious that he doesn’t give a Fudge.

According to Boston Herald, Romney was offered a hosting slot on Saturday Night Live. He turned it down saying it would degenerate into slapstick.

—— That doesn’t surprise me AT ALL! Obama is not smart, ——

He’s not even a man.

But he’s a commie, of the Fabian Socialist kind, as Buchanan said yesterday.

Considering his upbringing, his culpability for the disaster he has wrought is limited.

The real villian is the media, whose fog of lies made Obama’s election possible.

I'm sure that question and response was worked out with the campaign beforehand.

That limp sycophant Letterman would never have the balls for such effrontery.

Thank you. My playback cut off when I watched it the first time, and I didn’t realize there was more in the video that I’d missed.

How could he even give an accurate answer? The number is changing so rapidly that by the time he finished speaking the number, it would be billions higher.

OMW! That graphic is great! Thanks, NautiNurse.

@nutmeg — God luv ya’ for sitting through that “interview”. I am sorry, but watching not one but two leftist clowns at once is just beyond my endurance level.

When one of the news programs played back the clip of Obamugabe declaring that a president has to be president of all of the American people, I told my husband that I would be willing to bet that LetterBoy’s people wrote that one for him.

Wow! Good points. Yeah, remember when he wrote “2008” for the date when it was actually about 2 years later?

The Romney campaign should hear from you on your idea.

I don’t remember when it was but it was early in his administration. I was shocked when a reporter asked him a question about the economy and Obama basically blew it off like it was of no importance.

Do you remember when Obama was campaigning in 2008 when the gas prices were going through the roof? On the campaign trail both Obama and Hillary said that they had the answer for the high prices—of course, TAX THE OIL COMPANIES! Can you believe that? If they raised taxes on the oil companies it would only cause gas prices to rise even more. Obama and Hillary are either total dunces or they are total liars.
