Obama is asked in the Google+ Hangout if he is interested in saving $100 million over 10 years by eliminating the Penny. Obama says he is not sure why we still use the Penny. Then he likens the Penny to useless government agencies. He says that congress will not let him unilaterally reduce the size of government. So big government is their fault.
Obama’s version of Nero fiddling ... I’m convinced he has not a clue of what ‘leadership’ means. When he kept his private Blackberry upon inauguration, it was clear that he was going to be absent from leadership. He is the Chauncey Gardener of the democrips party ... and the low IQ media love him.

"Obama says he is not sure why we still use the Penny."
In the obamanomics general concept of domestic currency denominations, the penny is infinitesimally small.
The only way to get rid of pennies is to get rid of taxes :>)

Get rid of the penny?
And what would happen to all those take-a-penny, leave-a-penny dishes?
What about those Donate Your Pennies for charity jars next to the register?
Watch about the Penny Harvests in all the middle schools?
Oh! The horror!

Hey, I think this is a first! I actually agree with the kenyan on something.
