As a friend put it:

WTF? It hasn't STARTED you asshat! This "man" is smoking crack in the White House! Seriously, what kind of idiot would say this? Its like saying: hey, eat dirt, its yummy! Or watching your 6 year old say they didn't eat the cookies, with chocolate chips stuck to their cheeks.... Good LORD. This emperor has no clothes.

.... but I could only respond:

I know, I know, this sounds utterly insane.

But in a way, OTrauma is right. If you default on all your debts, your debt is reduced. And we are halfway to complete default.

The ChiComs won’t like us defaulting. But I’m sure they’d take all our Air Craft Carriers and Boomers in lieu of cash.

It’s a MATH PROBLEM. They all have it.

1 + 1 = 17.

Can’t govern? In over your head?

Simply change the narrative. Use the willing sycophants in the media to carry your water for you.

Lather, rinse, repeat.

Didn’t he mean, “The debt of job reduction is almost done.”

I can't vouch for the accuracy of the following, but it is from a "reputable" blog:

In the real world, in fact, many of their “cuts” cut nothing at all. The Transportation Department got credit for “cutting” a $280 million tunnel that had been canceled six months earlier. It also “cut” a $375,000 road project that had been created by a legislative typo, on a road that did not exist....

Taxes are set by statute and regulation, so last years. “Budget cuts” are in the annual budget and have a live of one year, or until the next budget.

Promises of tax now, cut later have NEVER been kept and anyone agreeing to such a plan is complicit in the deception.

HW Bush’s tax hike was to be balanced with a spending cut “later” that never happened.

“Obama: Job of debt reduction nearly done”

Wow.....To think I missed it. Well that “Austerity” stuff wasn’t really that bad after all. I can’t understand why the Greeks and Spaniards are whining so much about it.

No, no, no. He was mis-quoted. What he really said:

“Job of economic destruction nearly done.”

Obama: Job of debt reduction nearly done

IOW, he has taken a play from the Clinton book of governing and, essentially, is saying "I have reduced all the debt I intended to reduce"{.


(For those who may not recall, Clinton said "I kept all the promises I intended to keep".)

“Over the last few years, Democrats and Republicans have come together and cut our deficit [over the next decade] by more than $2.5 trillion through a balanced mix of spending cuts and higher tax rates for the wealthiest Americans. That’s more than halfway towards the $4 trillion in deficit reduction that economists and elected officials from both parties say we need to stabilize our debt,” Obama said during his weekend radio address.

The most disgusting part—which is why the SOTU speech is worthless—is that Obama will say pretty much the same on Tuesday night and the lapdog Republicans will rise with their RAT betters and give acclamation to that joke of an assertion.

I don’t know about our air craft carriers (since the ChiComs are now building their own brand new ones anyway).... but maybe they’ll take them, yes. The CHiComs will probably first take all our natural resources in repayment of our huge debt to them (you know, the resources Obama won’t let Americans develop or use).

And some additional properties to boot.

Sometimes I think he’s evil, and sometimes I think he’s nuts. I know it could be both. Today I’m leaning toward Bidenshi! crazy.
