    According to the guys over at Zerohedge, it already has topped $16 trillion. It was a few days ago. The Republicans should hammer Obama with this. And we should fan out and remind everyone everywhere about the last four years:

    record deficits, record unemployment, record bank failures, record foreclosures, record number of months unemployment above 8%, record death toll of US troops in Afghanistan, record number of golf games, no current jobs plan, US troops deployed in at least 12 MENA and central African countries, secret involvement in Syrian war, Solyndra, Gunwalker, debt to GDP ratio 103%, over half the United States suing to get out of Obamacare, record number of unelected, unaccountable czars, lobbyists still running the White House, secret meetings in cafes offsite of the White House to avoid having to tell who they’re meeting, Michelle Obama with over forty personal assistants, Obama lost over 600 seats for the Democrats in the 2010 elections…

    Now THAT is one “accomplishment” of his administration that Barry can point to! It is something that shows the utter incompetence of the man, but hey, it’s something.

  • Debt is a huge problem. The founders of our country warned us. Debt is the road to ruin.

    Will the DNC have a big “debt clock” ticking up…???

    Please, nobody hold your breath on that one.

    But one thing that I can predict with relative certainty….

    IF it is mentioned, the debt is all the fault of the Obstructionist GOP, those nasty, selfish rich people, and hte eeeeevile BOOOOOOOOOoooooooooosh…

  • Bill Mitchell


    You just know the DNC is working like mad to bid up Obama on Intrade. Every pollster shows Romney surging and Intrade has Obama surging.

    What BS.

    A fool and his money are soon parted

    At least for now people have money to waste on what could be reckoned as foolish investments. When the debt comes due such frivolity will be curtailed.

    DEBT by continuing resolution is the present Congressional response. It is almost criminal to not pass a budget and then sqander billions on cronies, czars, and fake job opportunities. Barry , Nancy, and Harry have never been held accountable for this largess. I would have rather that the House just shut down government indefinately to get these Marxists in line. But they didn’t, and now we face massive Medicare and Defense cuts as our “reward”. Surely we can do better.

    Simply amazing that a lot of what the Founding Fathers rebelled against is now what a large segment of Americans want: a bloated unresponsive government, spiraling debt, increasing taxation and intrusion into the private affairs of citizens amongst other things.

  • pink tie Republican

    It took 200 years to accumulate the first trillion of debt, it took 287 days for the latest trillion. Good job Congress and Choomboy.

    And if things are unchanged the next trillion will be in even far less time, probably 100 days or less. Oh what an accomplishment, whee.

    Anyone who has been watching or caring has seen what has been happening in our country for the PAST THREE YEARS.

    It was devastating debt then and it is more devastating now.

    The icing on the cake and that expression is always a good thing unless you like icing is: Each of us carry a $51. 039.76 debt and it is getting bigger each second our savings and retirements and our kids future are being blown to hell and back.

    A prettier picture would be to have done something about this early on but what do the democrats do and the Commander of Debt, do.

    SPEND AND TAKE AND NOTHING TO SHOW FOR IT. I don’t just blame Obama and the democrats, I blame both parties of this tax and spend Government and within the RNC convention there lies hope. Love, Rubio, Ryan, all the republican Governors who have made a turnaround in their states and hopefully when Americans who have voted for Obama will finally, finally see the light and understand that our kids are baring the burden of their mistakes only then will we get serious about America and where we are going and fix this mess.

    Elect Romney we have no other way and time to get Serious. A new generation of Republicans and Conservatives see it and they will do something about our future and our children’s future.

  • Patty

    expression is NOT also a good thing, correction.

  • this should prove to the american people that the american politican is incapable of handling money. this deficit is about the only accomplishment of the career politicans that dominate our government.

    vote no incumbent, reduce taxation.

  • Befuddled

    The DNC Convention will be the longest episode of the Oprah Winfrey show ever.Damn the deficit, free sh-it for everybody!!!!!!

    It’s depressing that more people are not outraged about this and that Obama’s poll numbers are as good as they are. Obama and his ilk have got to be fired, but there’s much more wrong with this country than can be fixed by an election. I fear that it can not be fixed and that the U.S.A. will not survive in its current form. I pray that God uses Romney and others to lead us out of this collectivist darkness. Ultimately, all of us must get involved in the turn-around. For too long, ordinary citizens have been asleep in the back seat and letting politicians do the driving. God, please put a fire in our bellies to take our country and live according to your Precepts.

    $51,000 is just about the average annual income.

    So, if we all stopped eating and worked for the federal government for free for the next year, our kids might actually have a chance.

    Assuming that everybody in the federal government was sent home for a year.

  • Path

    It’s like the bumper sticker said, “Freedom or Free Stuff” – you can’t have both. Personally, I don’t have $51K to share with O.

  • Patty

    The debt clock ticks and what does Obama do, build sculptures of himself. I do wonder how much this cost.

    The deb clock ticks and Obama wanted another trillion for most failure and we watch the future of our kids slip into less hope and more poverty.

    The money Obama spent could have been used so differently and then on top of everything else he spent on failures and recovery and promise the unemployment would be below 8% all the while giving money to friends and lines of Americans grew for food stamps, the great Depression was nothing compare to what Obama has done to our nation.

    Tell 5 of your friends if not that one or two why we need Romney and Ryan. We do deserve so much better.

  • The problem with $16 trillion dollars now is that no one understands it. It’s just a number on the meter clicking away on the U. S. National Debt Clock website. It should be scaring the bejesus out of everyone, yet so few seem to understand how ruinous it will be unless we do something about it now.

  • It causes a trickle down thinking (and non-Party) people’s legs.

  • Can I add to the picture of the debt clock?

  • Perfect. But, how to avoid $20t ($40t, $80t…) during the election 4y from now, no matter who’s in? This [welfare] freight train has already crested the cliff, I don’t see how you can undo that.

    “Will the DNC have a big “debt clock” ticking up…???”

    Certainly not. However, I’m quite sure the GOP will have one somewhere in Charlotte during the week.

  • Shawn

    They will celebrate this by adding another 5 trillion.

    What great timing. It would be great if the Romney campaign started running a strong rebuttal to the “Did Obama Inherit a Mess?” meme because the lib goose steppers are only going to honk “Bush’s fault” which their media parrots will amplify endlessly. The other thing it would be great to see them do is release about 20 years of tax returns on the last day. Let O try to compete with that.

    Well, if the 6 trillion had been divided up between every american it would have been a 20k check. take it down to every citizen above 18 and it would have been 30k.

    Or you could have paid every home mortgage up to 100k which would have saved a ton of people from losing their home, not to mention prevented all the small banks from going under and being taken over by the big banks.

    I’d rather be disappointed in Romney than have my worst fears come true with a second Obama administration.
