Here’s a little something that could surprise some people: Remember that little election we had 22 days ago that gave President Obama a second term and the flexibility to do numerous things he’d promised the Russians?
You might have thought the election victory was the end of Obama’s campaigning. Silly you. Now that he never gets to run again for anything, Obama is hitting the campaign trail once more this week to talk to supportive audiences about what he’s been saying for many months about this looming fiscal cliff business. It comes due in early January, just like the holiday bills of most families.
You know, how Obama says he wants to tax the rich some more, which everybody who isn’t rich supports? And he says he intends to use that chump change to pay down the deficit and national debt. At his rate, no one presently alive on this planet will ever see a material change in the incredible scale of the U.S. national debt, which has now soared past $16 trillion.
