‘T’would be most appropriate

The national debt was $15,975,222,200,557.28 as of yesterday, and it just might top $16 trillion during the Democratic National Convention.

In 3½ years under President Obama, we have added almost half a trillion dollars more to the national debt since President Obama was inaugurated than was added during the entire eight years that George W Bush was in office.

Let me put that in another perspective: under President Bush, we added $1,676,625,705.20 to the national debt every day; under President Obama, that number has risen to $4,067,182,624.82, every single day. If we assume that rate continues, we will have added $5.942 trillion to the debt by January 20, 2013, the end of President Obama’s first, and hopefully only, term. If the voters are foolish enough to re-elect this nincompoop, and the rate at which we add to the national debt remains the same, we will have added $11.884 trillion to the national debt, much more than doubling it. That would be a national debt of $22,511,184,678,650.10 on January 20, 2017.

Remember what Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) said about President Bush adding $4 trillion to the debt, all “by his lonesome?” That was “irresponsible,” and that was “unpatriotic.” So, what would Senator Obama call adding 21.3% more to the national debt in just half the time1 had Senator John McCain (R-AZ) won the 2008 election and that much new debt piled on under him as our President?

Yeah, we all know what Senator Obama would call it, and we know just how loudly the Democrats would be howling, and just how much they would be telling us that President McCain was an incompetent if he ran up the debt that much, if he had over $1 trillion deficits every single year, and if he had presided over an economy which had an 8.3% unemployment rate 3½ years into his term. But now, why it’s raaaaacist to evaluate President Obama’s job performance by the actual results, by the hard numbers, that have been produced under his leadership.

  1. It amazes me that the amount of damage done to our culture and our economy by this one incompetant fool still goes largely unreported in the MSM. As his policies kill what’s let of the middle class and further entrench the poor into a culture of dependence, all the MSM talks about are things like Akin and how Sandra Fluke still can’t get free contraceptives. The cancer called liberalism may have reached the Terminal point in America. We can no longer function with the “compassion” of leftists crushing the middle class with taxes, high energy costs and malaise. Nor can the poor ever get out of poverty if the left insists on keeping them down just for votes. And as Americans we can no longer allow an entire political party to slice and dice us into race, sex, wealth, and any other sections it desires to control us.

    It could take years to clean up the mess Hussein Soetoro and his minions of socialists have made of our economy and country. The Emporer stands before us in all his nudity. No clothes, no new ideas, no hope, no change and no future. We need Romney/Ryan now or we will regret it forever. It’s really quite simple. Who do you believe will run a more prosperous and competant economy? A corrupt Chicago style community organizer, or a successful businessman with years of private sector experience?

    President Obama is simply the latest, and worst, offender, but he’s hardly the only one. President Bush sponsored the cockamamie Medicare Part D entitlement expansion, and that is a permanent cost increase. In contrast, the war in Iraq is over and the war in Afghanistan will eventually be over; those expenses have end dates, but entitlement expansions are forever.

    We have to deal with entitlements, and we have to do it very soon.
