Obama Says He Can't Remember What The National Debt Was When He Took Office
businessinsider ^ | 9/19/12 | Grace Wyler

Posted on 09/19/2012 7:49:47 PM PDT by Typical_Whitey

Barack Obama touched on the issue of the federal deficit last night, telling late night talk show host David Letterman that the U.S. doesn't have to worry about the debt "in the short term."

Responding to Letterman's concern about the growing deficit, Obama first deflected blame on to his predecessor, George W. Bush.

Major Gaffe, incompetent fool is not paying attention to what his own previous CJCS Adm Mullen said was "The number one national security threat to this nation"

In over his head, his answer on how he is going to address it find cost savings in "Programs that don't work" WTH is that? He doesn't even have a concept of what trillions in debt really is, most people don't and that is the problem, would probably help Romney if he would start explaining the truth of the debt and the severity of it and how it really means the end of America if we do not get it under control.

“Obama Says He Can’t Remember What The National Debt Was When He Took Office”

And I’m sure that Buckwheat can’t remember how many rounds of golf he played or how many pounds of wagyu beef he stuffed down his racist pig face.

Bet he can remember his NCAA brackets back then, though. And his golf scores. And who served the best Wagyu beef and lobster.

Maybe we should invest in companies that make shovels. The msm is constantly trying to bury all the gaffes this clown makes. Between him and Biden they are keeping the msm busy.

And the media says “yawn.” This won’t hurt him any more than anything else has done because obama’s campaign arm (the media) will ignore it.

[National Debt] ... The number one national security threat to this nation

You obviously have not been paying attention. According to Moochelle, the number one threat to our national security is obesity! Which of course is why we are spending twice as many billions as 4 years ago on food stamps so people can afford more Cheetos and fructose-loaded soda.

Correct me, was the US federal budget not in surplus just before 2001?

The fact that Obie has not been able to balance the books in the last 4 yrs is a major worry. One doesn’t need an MBA - it requires common sense though.

“We don’t have to worry about it short term. But it is a problem long-term and even medium-term.”

Really? Do you remember what the nation’s credit rating was when you took office? Maybe you should give Moody’s a call and ask them about that because what you’ve got here is a short-term problem, a medium-term disaster and a long-term economic collapse.

Is it Bush’s fault you’re a stupid, lying asshole or did you take care of that yourself?

Shoot, why should he remember that? I mean, it's not like he was a senator who voted for the budget that year - and who reads even the executive summary? Besides, you gotta pass it to find out what's inside anyway.

And there was a campaign appearance to arrange... And, umm, the dog ate his homework.

Somewhere, though, Jimmy Carter is smiling, happy that the mantel of the worst Democrat president is being lifted off of his shoulders.

Look at nations as individuals. There is a community of Nations. Each nation has an income. Each Nation has an income. Each nation has a debt
The same with individuals in a community. Responsible people know their numbers; irresponsible people don’t.
You must be able to pay your debt and meet your obligations with your income. You must not allow your debt to become so large that you cannot meet it with the income you have. There comes a point when you must cut up your credit cards.
