Smartest Man in the Room Can’t Remember the National Debt

Maybe if he didn’t spend so much time fundraising, playing golf, watching football and appearing with butt-kissing rumpswabs like David Letterman he’d know what the number is.

In his interview with David Letterman last night, President Obama admitted that he didn’t know the amount of the national debt.

“Now, do you remember what that number was? Was it $10 trillion?” asked Letterman.

“I don’t remember what the number was precisely,” responded Obama.

The national debt, of course, was $10 million when President Obama took office, but is now currently at 16 trillion and counting.

“If this is me, I got the credit card guy calling me every day, I start to get scared,” Letterman responded. “As Americans should we be scared that we owe that kind of money? Who do we owe that money to?”

“Well a lot of it we owe to ourselves,” Obama explained. “Because if you invest in a treasury bill or something like that, essentially you’re loaning the government money.”

Absolutely clueless.

    He has just proved beyond any reasonable doubt that everything he “knows” about economics is wrong; everything he doesn’t know about economics fills entire libraries; and he could not possibley care less about the entire subject. Moreover, as with his hero FDR, he’s a man who simply cannot tell the truth when a lie will suit his purposes just as well.
