- What? Obama Borrowed $4 Trillion in 2 1/2 Years? -
By: Larry Walker, Jr. –
It was back on July 3, 2008 when Barack Obama exclaimed, “The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents - #43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back -- $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That's irresponsible. It's unpatriotic.”
Now, just two and a half years into his one-term proposition, Barack Obama has added $4 trillion to the national debt by his lonesome. So what does that make him? Today we have a national debt of $14.6 trillion that we are going to have to pay back -- that’s $46,935 for every man, woman and child, and $130,786 for every U.S. taxpayer. It may be stated that Obama’s record on the national debt is 320 times more irresponsible, and 320 times more unpatriotic, no? But let’s just call it, “Not Change”. I know, I know, I can “go straight to Hell”, right Maxine Waters?

So what’s the plan, Stan? More ‘temporary’ shovel ready jobs? Overthrow another Libya? Form a government-run infrastructure bank (LOL)? Add another 99-weeks to unemployment benefits? Raise taxes on $250,000-aires? Form another debt commission? Raise the debt ceiling, raise the debt ceiling, raise the debt ceiling? Create a super-committee? Build a bullet train to nowhere? Tighten the noose around Gadaffi? Fix health care again? Another temporary Social Security tax cut? Extend the 100% bonus depreciation write-off on corporate jets and SUVs? Blame the Tea Party and Republicans? Give another speech? Take another bus tour to nowhere? Play another four-year round of golf?
Nah! I don’t think so. Looks like a one-term proposition to me, if that. Now it’s Obama vs. Obama. A kind of lose-lose hypothesis. Heck, this guy couldn’t even beat himself. We might as well bring Bush back. Or maybe we’d be better off without a President at all. How about a “none of the above” bubble on the next ballot? I’d rather have no President at all than four more years of misery. Hey Obama, why don’t you just do us all a favor by resigning right now?
It’s time for serious solutions. Give me something to die for. Give me a candidate I can stake my name and reputation on. Dazzle me with common sense. Show me how it’s really supposed to work. Rock my free-market world. Naturally, we independent small business types will be placing principles above personalities, so you best watch what you say, and do.
"A bill will be presented to the Congress for action next year. It will include an across-the-board, top-to-bottom cut in both corporate and personal income taxes. It will include long-needed tax reform that logic and equity demand ... The billions of dollars this bill will place in the hands of the consumer and our businessmen will have both immediate and permanent benefits to our economy. Every dollar released from taxation that is spent or invested will help create a new job and a new salary. And these new jobs and new salaries can create other jobs and other salaries and more customers and more growth for an expanding American economy." - John F. Kennedy, Aug. 13, 1962, radio and television report on the state of the national economy.
