Obama on Letterman: Doesn’t know debt clock numbers

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

President Obama recently conducted some more hard hitting interviews, this time with David Letterman. When the host asked Obama how much the current national debt is, Obama did not know the answer. What he did know, however, was the he had the perfect opportunity to attack President Bush!

WATCH:

“Well, here’s what happened. We had a surplus when Bill Clinton was president,” Obama told Letterman. “It was projected to continue to be a surplus. We decided to launch two wars on a credit card. We cut taxes twice without finding offsetting costs for it or ways to pay for it, a prescription drug plan and then we had a massive recession.”

Yes, the long list of excuses as to why our debt is so high comes from the Bush administration. The fact that it continues to grow under how presidency is just a weird little thing you need to stop paying attention to. It’s not his fault, it’s Bush’s.

But what’s worse is that when asked if he knew what the national debt was when he took office, he responded, “I don’t know what the number was precisely.”

And that’s it. No admission that it’s a problem. No plan on how to turn things around. Nothing.

“This shows that the President of the United States is so cavalier about our debt that he can’t say ‘I don’t know the precise number but it’s about $16 trillion but it’s a real problem’,” Glenn said.

“Remember the uproar when George H. Bush didn’t know the cost of a gallon of milk. You’re the most out of touch human being alive,” Pat added.

“The press should be all over him,” Pat added. “They would if this was somebody else.”

    Should anyone be surprised?! Oblamo DOESN’T KNOW A THING (that’s how he got us into this mess) but worst of all HE DOESN’T CARE!!! You should’ve seen his expression. He thought it was no big deal.
    According to Dinesh D’Souza, Obama wants a global redistribution (of wealth). When he talks about the 99%, he’s referring to all the Third World Nations and we (USA) are the 1%. Why do you think he stopped all the oil drilling in America and gave billions of dollars to Spain, Brazil, China, etc? So they can drill for oil!!!! And guess what Obama wants the USA to do??? He wants the USA to buy oil from these countries! He is forcing the USA to support those countries! This is his goal of redistribution of wealth.
    If you haven’t seen the movie 2016, go see it and take a undecided voter or even an Obama supporter with you!

  • corey williams

    Nothing Inteligent to say Huh?

  • corey williams

    What are you talking about. We are drilling more oil now than we ever had. Two oil that is drill all goes into a global reserve the only oil that dosen’t go into that is our emegency supply. The president has no power where are oil goes. The only oil he controls is the emergecy supply.

    Well, dear, I guess that’s the difference between you and me. If I was president of this country, I can promise you one of the first things I would do is find out the precise number from day one and it would be a number I would NEVER forget – and I’d keep watching the debt clock like a hawk. That’s the kind of diligence I expect from the person who holds that office. Leaving it to assistants is reprehensible.

    Honey, all he needed to do was look at the debt clock the day he took office – at any point during that day – and say, “Okay. This is where we start.” Sure, over the course of the day that number would change, but he would have *a* number that was accurate enough to understand his starting point. And that should be a number imprinted indelibly in his mind. He should’ve been able to say, “Well, you know, Dave, obviously this is something hugely important to me and all the people in this country. So, one of the very first things I did was sit down and look at the debt clock and it was [exact amount] at 10:00 am my first day in office. I’ve carried that number with me, knowing what we’re up against and what we’ve got to do….”

    No, Corey, that is absolutely not too much to expect of the president.

    Never asked you to be my parent. Don’t understand how you got that from what i said but, ok. And i never said that your children where not educated. Don’t no why you took such great offense to that.

  • Lance

    The amount of BS coming from a certain individual in this post is unbelievable. There is no excuse for not knowing the national debt amount. “Precise” was a terrible answer. Saying 16 trillion would have been “precise” enough for Glenn and all of us. And as for it “chng[ing] every second”, we are talking about when he came into office. The second he swore the oath. The amount of debt we had on that second. That one, unchanging second.

    Oh, and go take grammar classes. Or at least spell the words correct. You seem very childish and dumb from how you are writing. If you aren’t, don’t give us an excuse to think so.

    I recorded and watched the whole pathetic spot on Letterman. OMG.. lie after lie after lie. I swear, every single sentence out of his mouth was a lie or grossly misleading statement. Where’s the press? They should play that interview, and pause it and explain to the American people that their president is a F***ING liar!

    And by the way, his idea to raise taxes on the wealthy is not only NOT FAIR to that segment that already pays more than their share (top 50% pay 97%), but what’s even more stupid about making statements like that is this fact – even if were to raise taxes on everyone earning over $200,000 to 100%, yes 100%, and not only that, confiscate all their assets/wealth – all of it – all their cars, homes, bank accounts, portfolios, everything – that wouldn’t even pay for a year of his current spending! So think about that. Think about it! He doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

  • Anonymous

    Corey, I’m saying he SHOULD have a precise number. An exact number. It’s about knowing *exactly* where he started so every day he knows how much more debt has been added. He’s telling you it wasn’t important enough to him to see where he started and always remember it.

  • corey williams

    So yopu still can’t can’t prove me wrong. You say I don’t get it but you have not givin one intelligent responsce that would go against what I am saying Your just trying to act me personlly. Which is a defense mechinism that you use to hide your lack of knowledge on the subject.

    No opne has and exact number tell me at what time does the debt clock stays the same it does it changes every second. And nothing of what he says indicates that he dose not think it’s important.

    Oh, come on, Corey! Quit being so obtuse. The National Debt clock at 7:41PM eastern time today was at 15,980,904,984,260 and counting. See how that works? You pick a time, and you go look. Now, if you are capable of memorizing two or three phone numbers, at the very least, you can remember that number and the time it was recorded. President Obama could have done that the day he took over the job. That he didn’t? Says very much to me that he doesn’t think it was important enough. When things are important to you, you remember them.

    Look at that number. First, you need to remember the 15. For me? I’ll just remember it’s the same age as my daughter. Then look at the next three segments. They all start with 9. Interestingly, you have 980, then 904, then 984. The 80 and the 04 parts can be added together to make 84 – a “memory cue.” So you need to remember 3 nines, and 84, and then the break down order of 84 into 80 and 04. All that leaves is 260. For me, that number has no particular relevance, but I can remember 260 easily enough. And I’ll even remember the 7:41pm part, too, just for kicks. I hope you’re starting to understand how simple this is – *if it’s important enough to you to do it.*

    I didn’t say that he wanted to make those earning over $200,000 to pay a tax rate of 100%, I said EVEN IF HE WERE TO RAISE TAXES TO THAT RATE, it wouldn’t be enough to cover even a year of his budget, let alone start paying off the 16 trillion. And yes, the top 50% pays 97% of all income taxes collection. The top 1% pays 38%, top 5% pay 60%, top 10% pay 70%, top 25% pay 86%. Read more carefully before you comment. As for proving that he lied, I could literally pick apart all 40 minutes of him talking and show data that proves he was lying. I don’t have the time to do that!

    Obama didn’t inherit a $16 trillion debt, he inherited a $10 trillion debt and it took 43 presidents before him to build it to $10 trillion. And he added $6 trillion to it in just 3+ years. And btw, he and the democrats were the ones who built up the $10 trillion and also are the ones to blame for the financial crisis and supposed “home crisis” which was entirely created with stupid policies the democrats mandated the banks lend money to people without any assets, with only food stamps and welfare as income – all with the intention to make their loan portfolios have a greater share of minorities. Then, the minorities defaulted on their loans and homes started being foreclosed and sold at less than they were purchased/worth, and so on and so on. Bwarney Fwank and Chris Dodd (democrats) were significantly to blame. But you’re too naive to understand any of this.

  • corey williams

    No he didn’t inherit he just had to pay for to Bush war. And he never said that raiseing taxes would be the only fi. He proposed to cut defense spending, close coporate tax loop holes and stop give oil ompanies tax subsidies, all of which where voted down by the republican in congress

    Why would I need a pen and paper to rattle off a number? And for that matter – why would I need a pen and paper to “do the math” of 80 + 4? I was merely trying to show you how to memorize a long number. Once you know it, you don’t need the tricks any more. Good grief. I’m showing my age here, but do they even teach mental math in schools any more? Does everything have to be written down or done with a calculator? This is NOT HARD, Corey!

    And again, I really don’t care how many staffers might know the answer – yes, I think Obama should know. Yes, I think ALL presidents (since the time we started accumulating such crazy debt) should know. I guess I just have much higher standards than you. Maybe that’s because you think something ridiculously simple like remembering a number is too difficult for our president to manage. You must have a rather low opinion of the man you seem to be trying to defend, if you really think he’s too dense to even remember a number.

    The question he was asked was “what’s the national debt?” and instead of answering it simply as “it just turned a$16 trillion the week of the democrat convention” – he weaseled his way out of it, saying “I don’t know the precise amount.” THAT WASN’T THE QUESTION AND HE KNEW THAT. Typical weasel polician. If Letterman weren’t a liberal dweeb, he’d have said “I didn’t ask you for the precise down to the penny amount!” And for the record, there’s no way in hell that Obama didn’t know the debt reached $16 trillion. That was news and he knew it. All of us posting on here knew it. Do you seriously think he didn’t know it? C’mon! I can tell you’re an idiot, but are you really that stupid?

    Holy fish tacos, kid! The only book I even mentioned was not remotely “right wing.” Beyond that, I certainly didn’t tell you where to go to do your research. And I’m sorry, but I’m calling baloney on this one! If you did any decent digging like you claim, you’d never go anywhere and say something like, “Prove he lied.” because you’d *know* that’s like saying, “Prove diamonds are hard.” People have already spelled it out for you all over the place. They have audio and video files of the president, excerpts from his not-remotely-right-wing book, and all the evidence you need to see where he fudged the truth. If you want to find it, you will. You have to turn a deliberately blind eye to the truth to overlook it all.

    Explain what you mean he was off by 6 trillion

  • corey williams

    But remeberinjg that number does what it changes every second. the number the first day is not going be the same the next . The number at 8:30 will be diffrent the the one at 9. So if you know what the national debt was on obma first day in office and you say that is what it is today you will be wrong and I mean of by alot.

  • Anonymous

    It doesn’t matter what it is at 10! Do we need to start over here?

    Step 1. Obama reports for work his first day.
    Step 2. Obama takes a look at the debt clock and notes the number and the time of day he looked.
    Step 3. Obama remembers that number as the starting point – the place where he begins.
    Step 4. Obama goes on national television a few years later and a interviewer asks him, “So what was the debt when you first came into office?” and we have the conversation I already outlined above. He could ask someone in the studio to call up the clock right then to get the current number, and he could also point out that it’s constantly changing by going up, but he probably doesn’t want to do that. Why? Because on the day he took office, the amount was significantly less.

    Point being? He doesn’t have to keep remembering the amount every second. But periodically, he should check back with it and see how much it has grown since that initial amount – that amount that he memorized so he doesn’t have to keep looking it up – because it’s so important to know exactly where he started.

  • corey williams

    If he decided to say he dose not does not have a presice number instead of just give a close round number i have no problems with that.

    See that? He couldn’t give a number for today and he couldn’t give a number for when he started. Not exactly making it look like this is terribly important to him!

    Again, you are correct. He will not know the exact number every second of every day. However, not only did he not know the current amount – he couldn’t even state a starting point. How is this not clicking for you? He should know the number he started with – he should have that number memorized – so that ANY TIME he looks at the clock, he can figure out right away just how much it has gone up! This is the sort of thing a good president does. He does not leave it to assistants.

    Oh… wow, kid. You do know he’s the “author” of that book, right? That means if he stated something in it and it wasn’t true, he lied. Even if it was ghost authored, he signed his name to it.

  • corey williams

    Who stops in the middle of a televised interveiw to ask someone to give them the anwser , That ridiculous give another president or politian that has done that. And then you would all bash him for that. And because he says he dosen’t have the precise num,ber that means it’s not important to him you don’t know how many time het gets a round number of what the debt is. But he was aked the question and didn’t want to give a rounded number so he just stated he did not know precise number wich is him just being Human

  • corey williams

    Knowing what it is when he took office is important why? That’s not the number now so remebering that is important how? It’s not even close to what it is now.

    I do. I stopped in an interview for a local cable access show many years ago and asked if anyone in the audience could find an answer for me or already knew it. Of course, I was talking to a small group of people about a homeschooling matter, which is certainly far more important than anything the president was saying to the whole country, right? I wanted to make sure I was giving people the correct information. I had no reason to dodge the question, since the answer wasn’t going to make me look bad, and my ego isn’t tied up in pretending I’m much smarter than I really am, so I had no problem admitting I wasn’t sure what the answer was.

    The better description of what he did there was prevaricating. He didn’t *want* to answer that question, even with “rounded numbers.” I suppose you could say that’s “being human,” too, but I’ve found only chronic liars try to act like everyone else avoids the truth as much as they do.

    Corey, may I make a suggestion for you? I think you might want to immerse yourself in a critical thinking course. It would do you a world of good. Meanwhile, I’m done with this silly conversation. You don’t get it. And we get that you don’t get it, and I can’t think of any other way to explain it to you.

    Oh, geeze. Okay. This time I’m really done after this.

    It’s important to know what it was then, so he knows exactly how much it’s gone up since then, so he can take ownership of what’s happened since the day he started. This? Is the sort of thing responsible people do!

    Seriously. I cannot even begin to understand why you can’t grasp this.

    few seconds of attention making stupid comments on this site. It only
    proves how little they know, how meaningless their lives must be, and
    how desperate they are for the attention. Our ‘good friend’ @corey
    williams is the prime example. He cannot help but spend all of his time
    simply countering everything that is said here, without ever saying
    anything of any merit. The only thing he is accomplishing is to prove

    Is he suppose to try and bring down the entire debt not just what took place in his term.

    PMS. Lies and more lies corey computer. Tell them to fix your spelling drive. We are drilling less oil now then we ever have. We are way down on coal production as well. Why would you want to write an EO to seize control of all energy productions if there aren’t any? Global supply, more like stupid move. You think they are going to comply and share it? LOL..

  • new2la

    The only question I found telling was when he was asked about the US debt. His response was either a lie or he is extremely incompetent. He said he did’t know the number?!
    Well, why would he give that number knowing he added 5.5 trillion to said debt? Because it doesn’t look good on his resume…..it doesn’t look good for his re-election.
    He can’t manage a lemonade stand!

  • Anonymous

    The debt when GW left and obama took over was 9.8 trillion. Today, four years later it is 16 trillion. That is why he pretends he does not know the number when he took office, it was way smaller and he doesn’t want to remind you how much he has taken from us. With QE Infinity we have an additional 80 billion per month pouring out of our veins with no end date to shut it off.

  • corey williams

    I understand that you just want to find any fault with Obama but the moment someone ask you to prove what you say about him you can’t.

  • Anonymous

    Sorry but, you are wrong honestly…. The government WAS drilling but, obama stopped it over some new regulations, and then there was a handful of people drilling from private property and obama stopped that with more regulations BUT, the private citizens toke it to court and the judge overturned obama’s policy BUT…..then obama disregarded the judges decision and refused to let the private citizens drill on their own property and then he hit them again with more regulations that he put forward. Any one that went against obama even AFTER the judges decision was jailed.
    Now as far a Brazil goes George soros bought into Brazils oil company and then was given MILLIONS of taxpayers money for him to drill in Brazil.

    At this very time obama has OUR countries oil drilling caught up in red tape and new policies with the exception of a few that is still drilling under Bush’s permits.

    If you need anymore informatin on Brazil and soros please go to georgesoros.org. (com)

    This is the honest to God’s truth I swear upon my life!

    And also to had I would like to know if you know what obama is and has been doing to our coal industry? God, that is very important if he gets re-elected he stated he will close down all our coal plants, that means no energy to heat you homes etc, loss of thousands more jobs and as of one week ago him and hilary signed a treaty to turn our energy over to the UN (United Nations) with billlions of money from taxpayers. This meeting was in secret and took place on a Sunday.

    I suggest that that all of us start reading upon all the new treaties, Executive Orders and new laws that they have stowed upon us there’s quite a few lately AGAIN! Not one of them is in favor of the American people.
    I hope you do some research and on more than one site because the more you dig the more you will have an …ahhhhhhh moment and ask yourself WHAT HAPPENED??
    GOOD LUCK SIR, AND GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY

  • Shebaac

    Corey, you are wrong, Jayne is right. We are drilling more oil on PRIVATELY owned land, but less oil overall.
    Obama has stopped most drilling by the government on public land and stopped building the Keystone pipeline to pander to left wing environmentalists, to help him get re-elected. This is killing jobs. You can be assured he will approve building the pipeline if he is re-elected. And we have given money to Brazil to drill oil and will turn around and buy it from them. Obama sees this as leveling the playing field worldwide. He is an anti- colonialist. His goal is to bring the standard of living for other countries up by bringing our standard of living down. You need to get more informed, Corey. Read Obama’s book: “Dreams From My Father.”
    You’ll see what I mean. And open your mind. Read both sides of the issues and decide for yourself instead of believing what the corrupt main stream media is feeding you.

    Thanks. I’m starting to think there might be something wrong with Corey. He made a comment that essentially said, “Well, everybody writes false stuff to make themselves look good,” so we shouldn’t look at Obama’s own autobiography when demonstrating where he has lied. (I can’t find the comment now. Maybe he deleted it?) Seriously. In Corey’s world, you can lie all you want in a book you write about yourself, because “everybody” does, so then when someone calls you a liar, he/she can’t use that book to prove it. This actually makes sense to Corey, and there’s really no reasoning with a person like that.

  • ValueSet

    Corey, without even needing to look it up, I can tell you the names of the people who *would* have run against Obama in his election to the Illinois Senate, had he not had them eliminated by challenging signatures on their petitions. Don’t get me wrong. What he did there was perfectly legal, but it told me volumes about the kind of person he is. It said, “I don’t want you people to have a choice in who represents you. I don’t care enough about any of you to let you choose whether or not I’m the one who takes this senate position. It’s all about me and winning.” Once I knew what he was really like, I started watching him very, very closely. The fact that you are still trying to maintain no one can prove he ever lied tells me how little research you’ve done on the man, no matter how much you claim otherwise. We don’t need to rehash it all here for you. It would take days to type it all up and that would be a waste of time, since it’s all already out there for you to find.

    And as someone who doesn’t have a thing in her past that couldn’t be revealed in an autobiography, I find your excuse of, “He didn’t lie… he just left stuff out.” incredibly lame. Is that what this is really about? Do you have a lot of stuff in your own past you need to keep secret, so you’ll excuse others for the same thing?

  • http://www.facebook.com/azabigail1 Toni Carreon

    Corey here’s some research for you. Obama doesn’t WANT America to be energy self-sufficient. It doesn’t play into his plan to subjugate it. IF you REALLY care about America, consider this….this year we are not just voting on “who we like, or don’t like” we need someone in office who is FOR restoring and keeping America the same powerful sovereign nation that it has always been. Obama has not become interested in EPA issues to woo “green” voters, and it’s not to improve air quality. The EPA may, at one time, have begun as an advocacy for a clean planet, but today it is facade for the Global Climate control push which is a front for establishing a world economic governance. Obama has been busy aligning himself with other world governments and leaders in efforts to establish international legislation which, when agreed to by the leaders of the countries joining the alliance, would be able to make laws and issue dictates over every country in the world, to establish what they call “social justice”, or global socialism. ( for DETAILS…Global Warming Summary–Scientific Evidence Rejects Anthropogenic C02 Theory) Behind the facade of an EPA/ Global Warming umbrella they are preparing legislation to bring every nation under UN international jurisdiction. Through it they will impose taxes, penaties, fines over all “developed” nations under the claim that it will be to “fight” EPA/Global Warming, but the tons of money they will be reaping from this “front” will be held by a UN world economic governance organization. Every U.S president, UNTIL Obama, has REFUSED to relinquish ANY amount of U.S sovereignty and have not joined in agreement, (previously the Kyoto agreement). The site that is included in this post gives MUCH DETAIL concerning this. Al Gore, Reid, Pelosi, and others in his circle are just as involved, they have to continue to try to remove the obstacles in their way of helping Obama “change” America from the powerful, sovereign nation that it has always been to a subjugated, government owned, socialistic, welfare state, susceptible to agreeing with the new UN mandates. This is site (Go to..Global Warming Summary- – Scientific Evidence Rejects Anthropogenic CO2 Theory) for the entire story. It DETAILS a plan that the UN and global national and economic leaders are currently working on, to bring EVERYONE under the jurisdiction of a world economics governance organization, through the facade of a EPA / Global Warming alarm. These players have tried, unsuccessfully, in the past, to bring America into agreement with them. But all past Presidents and administrations have refused. Obama is the first one willing to agree. It appears that legislation may already be in progress, and waiting for final agreement. If they succeed, they will establish international rules and laws, mandates and regulations, that will bring every country and it’s citizens, under their global jurisdiction and if the U.S (Obama) agrees, Americas’ sovereignty will be compromised. Obamas’ agenda is to weaken America, and by legalizing millions of illegal aliens, he is changing the demographics so that true Americans, those truly dedicated and loyal to America, its’ values, constitution, strength, will be out-numbered by those who don’t care sbout the sacrifices that our men and women have made to secure Americas’ sovereignty. They will accept anything and their lack of loyalty to America will make everything that our men and women have fought for, null and void. This will open a path of less resisitance to his plan to “change” America from the powerful, sovereign nation that it has always been, to a government owned, socialistic welfare state and under the influence and / or rule of the UNs’ economic governance organization.

    Less Than 48 Hours After Gruesome And Brutal Terrorist Attacks Against Americans In Egypt And Libya, The Boehner-Led House
    Railroaded 1.5 Billion Dollars In Additional Foreign Aid To Both Countries Through The
    House… And The Senate Is
    About To Rubber-Stamp It In A Matter Of Hours!

    As a matter of fact, pressured by GOP leaders, the Republican delegation in the House of Representatives approved
    HJ RES 117 by a margin of 165-70.

    But HJ Res 117 doesn’t
    simply approve 1.5 Billion dollars of additional foreign aid over the
    next six months
    to these America-hating savages, it also funds ObamaCare and the
    out-of-control Obama spending that is driving our nation into bankruptcy.

    You read that right. The same Republicans who pontificated against
    Harry Reid for not passing a budget in three years just gave him the
    green light to
    NOT do it yet again. The same Republicans who promised to defund ObamaCare have funded it yet again, and to add insult to injury, they’re giving
    foreign butchers 1.5 Billion of your hard-earned tax dollars as a reward for their savagery.

    HJ RES 117 has
    moved to the Senate where a vote will take place in a matter of
    HOURS and Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham are already
    pushing their fellow Republicans to send these butchers more of your
    hard-earned tax dollars. We must stop them. They need to hear from you
    right now!

    They Simply Don’t Understand The Complexities Of Foreign Policy.

    If you’re looking for an explanation for this madness, perhaps the following passage sums it up: “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.”
    -Romans 1:22

    Our elected officials arrogantly tell us that folks like you lack the intelligence to understand the
    “complexities of foreign policy.”

    They egotistically remind us that there are factions within these countries and caution us that should we cut-off aid to the
    “good guys” within these countries, they will be unable to defend us against the
    “bad guys” in these respective countries that committed these atrocities.

    Republican David Dreier from California admonished that cutting funding to Libya and Egypt would be
    “a big mistake. Now more than ever it’s essential that we strengthen ties with these fledgling democracies.”

    But the plain and simple truth is that
    no member of Congress can actually tell you what happens to this foreign aid once the check is cut.

    The plain and simple truth is that even though history teaches us that they are often unable to differentiate between the
    “good guys” from the
    “bad guys,”
    they’re ready to repeat the madness of funding these attacks unless we stop them right here and right now:

    In FY 2011 we gave $1.5 Billion to the “good guys” in Pakistan who rewarded us for this financial assistance by hiding Osama Bin Laden;
    and the man who gave up Bin Laden, Doctor Shakil Afridi, is presently rotting in a Pakistani jail and facing 33 years in prison.

    The Libyan government, in an attempt to save its skin, is
    proclaiming that they warned us of the vicious attacks three days prior.
    Did they do anything to stop or preempt these attacks? Did they send
    armed troops or police to surround the areas outside of our embassies
    BEFORE the attacks?
    And how many of them gave a wink-and-a-nod to the cheering crowds that
    dragged the corpse of a brutally murdered American ambassador through
    the streets?

    How long did it take the Muslim Brotherhood-led Egyptian government to take action against those
    “protesting” at our embassy? Even the Christian Science Monitor called Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi’s silence
    “deafening;” and when Morsi finally spoke up, his first
    response was to repeat the “party line” of
    the terrorists who attacked our embassy and condemn the United States
    for not prosecuting the man who produced an obscure YouTube video that
    allegedly insulted the prophet Mohammed.

    Do we have any doubt that some of these political leaders are playing both sides of the fence? Would
    it not be more
    “prudent” and
    “reasonable” for our elected officials to withhold
    foreign aid from these countries UNTIL it can be determined whether or not the people in receipt of our
    hard-earned money are friends or foes?

    Of course it would, but Republican House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers says
    “no.” He arrogantly proclaimed
    that his precious HJ RES 117 was “closed for changes.”

    He incredulously and idiotically claimed that a move to cut-off funding now would be “premature.”

    Rogers idiocy is just one example that
    shows
    the urgent need to teach our elected officials a much-needed lesson in
    foreign policy right here and right now, before the United States Senate
    gives these savages another dime of our hard-earned money.

    This guy is a complete joke, he knew what the debt was when GWB was in office:
    The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.
    -Obamao 2006
    Yet, now that he is president, he doesn’t know? He campaigned on how much debt was added by GWB and promised to cut the deficit in half. Now, he spend the same amount as GWB, in half the time, but doesn’t know how much debt there is? The funny part is morons like corey still defend this fool.

    Here I looked up a few for you to start with.
    And
    coal IS still being used in the mid East/West for things such as heating
    their homes, running their power plants and without coal the power
    plants would shut down and this includes heating oil.

    Here’s a couple of Executive orders that you might want to look up that is dangerous to us all.

    NDRP- President gave himself the POWER

    Under the NDRP, the President now has the authority to seize any
    resource he deems “necessary” to uphold national security in wartime
    & peacetime.

    This includes, but is not limited to the following. All farms (meaning
    all food), transportation systems, clean water, and oil/fuel. The NDRP
    even goes so far to say that people with skills the government could use
    may be called upon and forced to work for the government against their
    will.

    NDAA- President gave himself the POWER

    To arrest, indefinitely detain any American citizen without cause or trial.

    Not

    to mention the healthcare bill everyone will have to have a GPS chip
    implanted in their bodies EVERYONE! And so much more dangerous things in
    this bill that has nothing to do with healthcare.

    He hired over 35,000 new IRS agents and calls them private sector jobs.

    In addition you body now belongs to the government because they
    concluded that “stem cells” are considered to be a drug and all drugs
    are under FDA regulations.

    Just these 3 Executive orders takes over everything we need to survive, water, food, and shelter.

    I HOPE THAT HELPED, and like I said this is just for starters.

    I
    look at it this way, if ANY President cares ANY thing about ANY
    American he/she would NOT have stripped us all of every human need and
    dignity that we need for our survival.

    AND PLEASE, don’t forget to look up his first Executive Order signed.
    that would be on January 21, 2009, yes I know that was the day of his inauguration, and that EO was to seal his records.

    Good Luck!

    What a frigging LIAR!

    There was no Clinton “surplus.”

    Bush inherited Clinton’s debt of $6.1 Trillion in January 2001.
    Bush then spent $4 Trillion during the next eight (8) years, including fighting two major wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
    Obama then inherited an existing combined debt of $10.1 Trillion in January 2009.
    Obama has now spent over $6 Trillion in less than four (4) years, thus bringing our total national debt to its present level of $16 Trillion.
    And if Obama is re-elected, and at his present rate of spending, our projected national debt at the end of his 2nd term will be in excess of $24 Trillion.

    I understand that – just releasing some pent-up frustration on my part. I find it hard to fathom the current shape our nation is in. Not simply in the economic or fiscal arena – but in our personal lives.

    We have Team Obama out apologizing to the world, when in fact they should be apologizing for their own actions here at home.

    And I’m not so certain that corey isn’t as dumb as he comes across. Nothing else explains the “god like” following that Obama commands.

    Its almost as if there is a spirit of stupidity that has landed on our nation and half of our former members have sold out. Maybe “O”-boy is right after all, when he says ‘most Americans cannot think for themselves.’

    So far at least, that is the only reasonable answer I can formulate, frankly, I’m more than puzzled.

    A staged interview with Letterman…. The Chairman’s people must have been worried about the impact the debt clock was having on voters, Letterman asks a question we know the Chairman does not want to answer ….. but look at his body language he
    didn’t get stiff and prickly when asked it … he looked at ease as if talking among
    friends, he was allowed to explain it away and ONCE AGAIN blame it on BUSH……
    but I think Letterman went further than expected when asking the amount on the
    clock …. The Chairman knows what it is but feigned not really knowing …… once
    more he lies to the American people, he speaks about how the programs out there
    to help people have to be made better while giving billions of tax dollars to
    cronies for green projects that go bankrupt I wonder how much of the money that
    disappeared ended up in the Chairman’s war chest for this campaign? When will we see people stand at his events and call out LIER!!!

    I am convinced that he is a soicalist and has an agenda to downsize the US, destroy the middle class and control health care, business, finance and thought by using the propagandist media that is in his pocket. However, keep in mind he is also an egotist, showman, professional organizer, union promoter and most of all, a pathological liar. He can’t help but lie. It is second nature to him and his minions. Ego and telling lies go hand in hand. He doesn’t care if we know he’s a liar. His ego prevents him from really caring or thinking enough of others to value their view of him. Birds of a feather flock together.

    A more accurate and honest answer from him would be an admission that without economic chaos, socialism cannot gain a viable foothold. Many think he is a fool, but that lets him off the hook. He is adopting every last tenet of the Communist Manifesto by Marx/Engel. He can blame whatever he wants and he knows that there will literally be no serious challenge to his statements from the media and that they will, in fact, go to the mat for him, attacking anyone who dares to offend him by questioning his motives or his policies.

    Obama and every other liberal couldn’t care less about the deficit because it is simply a means to a socialist end. His comment that “…the middle class is doing just fine,” shows his contempt for the pain that his policies inflict. His contempt for the educated (unless they’re liberals – then they’re geniuses), the more well off, those who have sacrificed for years to escape poverty by establishing business and risking losing everything, is personified in his statement plagiarized from that liberal rocket scientist, Elizabeth Warren: “…YOU didn’t build that”. By his way of thinking, building the business was the easy part. Transporting the goods to market on the roads he claims were built with tax money scavenged from the poor was what built that business. None of them seem able to explain, however, how it was the poor and lower middle class who paid for those roads when they are not paying taxes and are, in fact, receiving more on their tax returns than they paid into the system. This fact is NEVER factored in, only that the poor and lower middle class pay more of a percentage of their incomes in taxes from their paychecks. That they actually receive every penny back along with quite a bit more in taxpayer welfare is never calculated into those claims and unfortunately, conservatives do an abysmal job of pointing out that fact.

    The thing that IS a fact in all of this is that all that businesses need to be able to blow this economy wide open is for the government to get the hell out of the way. Businesses are declining right now because they are all holding their breath (and their wallets) because, should they choose to invest in their businesses and miscalculate the level of hostility of this president and congress toward those who have achieved the American Dream, they could, in fact, lose everything. Obama is committed to seeing capital gains taxes, corporate taxes, individual income taxes, FICA and every other tax skyrocket because of the failure of Congress to renew the Bush tax cuts, while congressional discretionary and entitlement spending will springboard to levels that will rapidly speed the economy into a demise that will dwarf the failure of the EU and Greece.

    Constantly now, business owners and employers are ruthlessly attacked. Tax cuts are always blamed by liberals for increasing the deficit, all while recklessly handing out money with absolutely no strings attached to those who not only contribute nothing of their labor, but also drain the public treasury of funds stolen from the pockets of the productive. Requirements for food stamps, AFDC, WIC, Medicare and Medicaid and Unemployment insurance have all been weakened to the point of being a virtual joke. Why would Obama want to remove the work requirements for welfare that have had a modest success in encouraging the search for work? Because the more public funds he puts into the pockets of those who will NEVER choose to work if any other option is offered, the more votes he garners.

    Obama opposes regulation of illegal immigration, and the purge of illegal voters from the voter registration rolls for the same reason. And the requirement to prove you are who you say you are? Illegal because it will disenfranchise the voters, even if the states pay for it. All so that he can pull the same voter election fraud perpetrated by Democrats in every blue state. It’s not hypocrisy-it’s a justifiable means to an honorable end.

    Barack Obama has increased the debt to levels never seen in this country. He has presided over the implementation of disastrous policies that have gutted the common treasury and redefined the role of the executive branch from the chief, unbiased enforcer of the law to usurping legislator and unappointed chief nullifier over the Supreme Court. All justified not by the rule of law, but by the expediency of achieving his goals to destroy the Constitution of the United States and usher in an era of socialistic utopia.

    The answer to the national debt is NOT taxes that will further stifle the economy. It is in tax cuts with concomitant, precipitous cessation of spending, as well as purging the welfare programs that are gutting our economy and our social structure more effectively than any anarchist/communist movement in the history of the world. It’s why he wants to stay the course. So far as he is concerned, we haven’t killed the economy enough. It frightens me beyond comprehension that, should this man be given another four years, the things that made the US the greatest nation on earth, will be gone and we will cease to merit the blessings of God because we now consider good evil and evil good. Without the principles that established the liberty that I pray some will still consider sacred, I fear we will be swept from the face of the earth, having manufactured our own demise.

    And they were rightfully voted down by Republicans. You see, closing those corporate tax loop holes would actually LOSE American businesses. In turn, thousands, heck even up to hundreds of thousands and millions, of jobs would be lost. You apparently want that, though. News flash, son. Compare America’s corporate tax rate to the rest of the world. If Obama’s going to close tax loop holes, than he needs to LOWER the tax corporations have to pay, as well, just so those businesses do NOT go overseas and are lost from this country for good.

    And cutting Defense spending? Please. Defense spending is NOT even the real problem. ENTITLEMENT spending is. If we were to get rid of entitlement spending, we would turn our more than $1 trillion deficit into a $1 trillion surplus. So, you’d rather open us up to an attack from an enemy state so you can continue to get that government check every month? News flash, when we get taken over by another country because of a lowered defense budget, that government check won’t matter, lol.

    because the oil is cheaper would not make it better for the environment that makes no sense. tar oil is the most toxic oil there is and that is what the keystone pipeline will be transporting. Global warming is true just look how crazy the weather patterns have got and the increase in big weather events that the scientist predicted.

  • Anonymous

    LOL Wrong. Oil being cheaper actually WOULD make it better for the environment.

    And absolutely NOT. Man made global warming has been flat out DISPROVEN by ACTUAL climate scientists. We have had crazy weather patterns for hundreds, thousands, millions, and even billions of years. The crazy weather patterns we are seeing now are NOWHERE close to the crazy weather patterns this planet saw a mere 100 years ago, lol. We haven’t seen century year old weather extremes yet, let alone millenia year old weather extremes. You have NO understanding of weather apparently if you actually believe the current weather patterns are any more extreme than past weather patterns.

    And please, big weather events that scientists predicted? A little news flash for you son. NO scientist, NOT A SINGLE ONE, actually predicted big weather events. Besides the point though because the so called big weather events aren’t even happening. Weather events today are NO bigger than they were a mere decade ago.

    Guess when Katrina was. Go on. It’s a fairly recent hurricane. The answer. 2005. Have we seen a hurricane as damaging since? NO, we have not. Now, my apologies to those who may have been affected by hurricanes since 2005, but none since have come close to the damage wrought by Katrina.

    In fact, in the grand scheme of things, Katrina wasn’t even that big. Here for your education, dunce, are other major hurricanes THROUGHOUT HISTORY that were just as big and EVEN WORSE than Katrina.

    Great Hurricane of 1780- This is the deadliest recorded hurricane in all of history. Mind you I did say recorded. There likely were several more that weren’t even recorded. This hurricane killed well over 25,000 people. It wasn’t the only exceptionally deadly storm that year, either. There were 3 such storms in that year alone. Mind you that was 230 freaking years ago. How crazy is that, lol? A worse storm than ANY and ALL we’ve seen in the past 50 years that occurred MORE THAN 200 years ago. I’m not stopping there.

    Galveston Hurricane of 1900- This storm killed between 6,000 and 12,000 people.

    1974- Hurricane Fifi
    Another 8,000 to 10,000 deaths.

    1930- Dominican Republic Hurricane
    This one leveled Santo Domingo and caused between 2,000 and 8,000 deaths.

    1963- Hurricane Flora
    Another 7,186 to 8,000 deaths.

    Now, that just came from Wikipedia. They list several more hurricanes on that particular page, too. Here’s the link.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_deadliest_Atlantic_hurricanes
    Look at the list they have of hurricanes going ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE 1500s. Out of the top 10 WORST recorded hurricanes in history, 9 were no later than 1975. Heck, 7 of them occurred even before 1931. Guess where Katrina ends up on that list. Katrina ended up 28th on that list. Guess how many hurricanes on that death were even of the last decade. A grand total of 3. Of that, 1 was in 2004 and 2 were in 2005. Oh, but you say, look at how crazy the weather patterns are. Son, I’ve looked at how crazy the weather patterns are and I GUARANTEE you that the weather patterns are NO crazier than they should be.

    Now, getting beyond Wikipedia because many people, including myself, don’t really like using it as a source, here is another link for you.
    http://www.thedailybeast.com/galleries/2010/09/02/15-worst-hurricanes.html
    They end their list in 2008 with Hurricane Ike, 4 years ago for crying out loud, and even that was NOWHERE near as bad as Katrina, which, might I add, was NOWHERE near as devastating as other storms MORE THAN a century ago itself.

    Now, here’s a page listing only hurricanes that made landfall in the US.
    http://www.wunderground.com/hurricane/usdeadly.asp
    Of the top 25 costliest hurricanes recorded, one, JUST ONE mind you, came from the last decade. That ONE being Katrina. Of those top 25, JUST TWO came from the last 50 years. Those being Katrina and Agnes.

    Now, I’d like to take you back to another hurricane in 1928. I’m sure you’ve heard about the great Okeechobee Hurricane. More than 4,000 people were killed, 2500 of them from southern Florida.

    Oh, but as you say, look at all the big weather events that the scientists predicted. No, son. Scientists predicted NOTHING. You see, history did all the work for them, lol. There were really big, massive, excessive storms in the past, so logic dictates that there will be really big, massive, excessive storms at some point in the future as well. Get a clue, son. You obviously know NOTHING about how weather actually works.

  • Anonymous

    Oh, my bad. I have to make an addendum to that list of 25 worst hurricanes to make landfall on the US, as well as add an honorable mention. I missed one. The list shows 3 from the last 50 years. Camille was one too. Honorable mention goes to Mitch. Though it did technically make landfall in Florida, it caused nowhere near the damage in Florida as other US hurricanes do. It’s damage was to the rest of Central America. Though, that was back in 1998, a full 14 years ago, and caused nearly 20,000 deaths in Central America. Wild weather pattern, to be sure, and one that the 3 very WORST US storms of the 2005 season, including Katrina, couldn’t match COMBINED.

    actually go look at temperature around the world they have been rising for that last 20 years and the ice caps are melting. also look at the rates in witch we get tornado now look at the rate 30 years ago. All the tsunami and flood happening around the world.

    LOL Seriously? YOU go compare the rates now to 30 years ago. Unlike you, I actually HAVE done so. The rates of major weather phenomenon now are NO DIFFERENT than they were 30 years ago, moron. There are as many strong floods and hurricanes now as there were 20, 30, 50, 100, and yes, even 200 years ago. Why, the Great Hurricane of 1780, which killed more than 25,000 people mind you, was one of 3 such hurricanes that year and it was by far stronger and deadlier than ANY and ALL hurricanes we’ve seen since. It’s winds were estimated at more than 200 mph, for crying out loud. Not even Mitch, which was also stronger than Katrina mind you, had winds reaching that speed. You really are an utter MORON, lol.

    And of course the temperatures have been rising. You see, those of us who actually understand how climate actually works expect it to. Temperatures will ALWAYS change. There will NEVER be a time where temperature is in a constant state. Of course, our temperature has been going up. We came out of a mini ice age you ignoramus. The temperature MUST go up, lol. It will, in due course, go back down, just as it has ALWAYS done, for the last 4.5 billion years of this planet’s history. Here’s a little fact for you. The global temperature was several degrees hotter than today’s temperature just 1,000 years ago. And the ice caps melting. First of all, ONLY the North Pole ice caps are actually melting. The South Pole, on the other hand, is actually GROWING according to NASA’s satellites, lol. And please. You think melting ice caps matter? There have been several periods in our planet’s history where there were NO ice caps to speak of, you know. Heck, during the Medieval Warm Period, North Pole ice caps were almost nonexistent. Guess what happened? A mini ice age came along and REFROZE the north. This is why many viking left Greenland to go back to their home. Now, quit being such a moron, and study some actual history for once.

    You don’t study weather like you say you do. When the ice caps melt it will cause flooding and send us into an ice age.Temperatures do change by they don’t change at the rate that they have been at for years. and nasa release a report last week stating on the loss of ice cap in the last 10 year s so what the hell are you talking about.

    LOL Seriously? When ice caps melt, it will cause flooding and send us into an ice age? That is the WORST POSSIBLE science anyone could come up with, and it goes against Archimedes principle pertaining to ice, moron. Here’s a quick little experiment that any idiot, including one like you can do. Take a glass of water. Put some ice cubes in it floating at the top. Those ice cubes represent polar ice. Mark the level of the water. Now, let the ice melt. Mark the level of water after all the ice has melted. Than tell me how much the water level went up, lol. You have NO clue about science, ignoramus. Open an actual Physics book some time. Ice caps melting will IN NO WAY cause flooding. That’s just ridiculous. Besides that, ONLY the North Pole ice is actually melting. NASA satellites PROVE beyond ALL doubt though that the South Pole has actually GROWN, and has been growing for 5 decades straight. In fact, there has NOT been a single year in the last 40 or so years where the South Pole actually lost more ice than it gained. You see, for the last few decades now, according to NASA satellite data, the South Pole has had a net GAIN in ice. One side of the South Pole is melting, but the other side is actually GROWING FASTER than the melting side is melting. This is DOCUMENTED FACT documented by NASA who have been keeping track of ice for decades.

    Also, you don’t learn do you? The North Pole has been without ice before. It is called the Medieval Warm Period, ignorant buffoon. Guess why the vikings left Greenland in such a hurry? It wasn’t because of the locals, lol. It was because Greenland started to REFREEZE. This, in turn, led to a REFREEZING of the North Pole, as well, as we entered the mini ice age.

    And now you talk about the rate of temperature change. News flash, son. It is a VERY WELL DOCUMENTED FACT that the temperature of the planet went up a FULL degree and a half in the last century. That’s 1.5 degrees in 100 years. Why, at that rate, it will be about 3 to 4 centuries before we even come close to the temperatures seen in the Medieval Warm Period 1,000 years ago, lol. The rate of change in temperature now is miniscule. It doesn’t matter because the rate of change in temperature is so small it’s hardly even noticeable. Oh, my. So the world is a full degree and a half warmer than it was a century ago. Looks like we’ll all be burning up in a few thousand more years, lol.

    This is ALL documented science. This is ALL documented by ACTUAL experts who have ACTUALLY been watching the global temperature, moron, and not the quacks paid for by the UN. Heck, even NASA has published article after article confirming it. The one who doesn’t study weather around here is YOU seeing as you have ALL of the facts wrong. Heck, ALL of your facts, EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM, run so contrary to ACTUAL recorded science and history that it’s flat out ridiculous.

    Nonsense. Oil companies buy options to drill on Federal land but are not allowed to drill on that land by the Obama administration. They are held up by Government, EPA, environmentalist groups and much of those lands don’t have any oil on them. Shebaac is correct about giving Brazil money to drill in deep water areas of Brazil and Obama gave a speech stating “we will be your biggest customers”.

    You really don’t know much of anything, do you?

  • SoThere

    It was approved by the EPA. You really don’t know much, do you?

    WOW! You blame
    “tsunami”s on global warming. I’d like to see the science behind that! In fact, I’d like to see you provide any science behind anything you spout.

    50 thousand scientists have now come out against Man made global warming. Prove me wrong.
