You should be sitting down. The skies just might open. Glorious Leader has spoken his first words of truth while bungling Harry Truman's famous quote.
"Well, here's what I know, we were just talking about responsibility and as president of the United States, it's pretty clear to me that I'm responsible for folks who are working in the federal government and you know, Harry Truman said the buck stops with you," Obama said.
"The Buck stops with YOU !"
Does it ever; about $140,000 per taxpayer on our $16 trillion dollar debt. In actuality, a 'one-percenter' is on the hook for a lot more based on income tax rates. The average 1% taxpayer owes about $4,200,000 on the national debt. The average taxpayer in the bottom 50% of taxpayers only owes about $5,000.
The 1% crowd in toto would be responsible for about $6 trillion of the national debt. The bottom 50% only has to cough up $360 million. The 'one-percent' pays 16,666 times as much as the bottom 50%.
Neat chart here: http://www.therightscoop.com/how-much-of-the-national-debt-each-taxpayer-really-owes/
Am surprised this latest Obama gaffe isn't a Drudge headline or that Rush didn't open with it today. Glenn Beck and his buddies had a lot of fun with it today.
"The Buck stops with YOU" needs to be an instant RNC or Crossroads campaign ad.
