Question: When does $70 billion equal 1.25 trillion?

Answer: In Obamaworld

"You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time."

- Abraham Lincoln

Unless they are Obama supporters. It turns out that you can fool all of them all of the time.

Barack Obama admits to being weak at math. On Leno he said:

“The math stuff was fine up until about seventh grade. Malia is now a freshman in high school. I’m pretty lost.”

That explains a lot.

Barack Obama claims that he was re-elected to raise taxes on the so-called "wealthy.

President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner are signaling they’re open to some compromise on a taxes and spending to prevent more financial pain in the new year, but the two sides are digging in on raising taxes for wealthier Americans. Obama said Friday that his re-election gave him a mandate to pursue that position because “the majority of Americans agree with my approach.”

His approach was and still is to lie. Or else he is plain stupid.

Obama has people believing that 70 billion equals 1.25 trillion. They believe it because he told them it does. Obama supporters do not question anything Obama says.

Yes, Obama did say 70 billion equals 1.25 trillion. He spoke with the feckless Scott Pelley during an interview for 60 minutes and he said:

“And if we go back to the tax rates for folks making more than $250,000 a year, back to the rates that we had under Bill Clinton,” he continued, “we can close the deficit, stabilize the economy, keep taxes on middle class families low, [and] provide the certainty that I think all of us would be looking for.”

In an ad Obama said

“Now Governor Romney believes that with even bigger tax cuts for the wealthy, and fewer regulations on Wall Street, all of us will prosper. In other words, he’d double down on the same trickle-down policies that led to the crisis in the first place.”

Obama went so far as to enlist Bill Clinton to lie; to say that these tax rates on the "wealthy" caused the current financial mess.
