Obama Can’t Remember the National Debt on Letterman (Video)

In 2008 Barack Obama said President George W. Bush was “unpatriotic” for adding over $4 trillion to the national debt in eight years.

Obama went on to add nearly $6 trillion in less than four years.

Last night Obama told David Letterman he didn’t remember what the national debt was when he came into office.

    Well, math never has been a long suit for the Dems/Libs/Progs anyway.

    I doubt he even knows what it is now.

    How many states are there? “I can’t recall that either.”

    This damn well better be in a commercial Romney!

    Who watches this crap? I mean, really.

    I remember – a long, long time ago – when late-night television was funny. Yes. Even Letterman. But now? It’s a waste of my time.

    If I want to watch some loudmouth politician, I’ll watch the news.

    You keep shoving them down my throat on what’s supposed to be entertainment? Not a chance in hell I’ll be watching.

    He cant’t recall it because either:
    a. It’s too big a number for him
    b. the choom he smoked and continues to smoke makes him forgetful.
    c. He’s had brain damage from cocaine snorting.
    d. A question like that is beneath his pay grade.

    Or–Letterman: How many states are there? Barry: Ooh, ooh, I know that one, Dave! 57!

    . . . whatever it was, it was all Bush’s fault.

    The deficit, the debt, the stupid Boston Police, the stupid Arizona Sheriff, the doctors who perform unnecessary amputations out of greed, mandatory purchase of medical insurance, Fast and Furious, ACORN, the New Black Panthers, Eric Holder, Jay Carney, The Rev Wrignt, Bill Ayers, Saul Alinsky, the failed trillion-dollar stimulus, GM is dying and bin LAden coming back to life . . .

    All – ALL – Bush’s fault.

    Don’t forget “folks” not keeping their tires properly inflated and getting a tune-up, atm machines…………

    I didn’t watch it never will, but I can see Letterman smiling with toothless admiration at the mostest, bestest smartest president ever. did he ask him if he had a chance to visit all of the 57 states yet? Did he ask him what he thought of the Army courps of Engineers, or the US Marine courps? How about the intercontinental railroad? Dave what about the one last week the three words he had for the Republicans.” Made in the USA.” Oh an did he loop the clip of obama trying to enter the white house through a window?

    Obama is correct about one thing – the debt is mostly owed to ourselves. See Fox News at http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/09/04/who-do-owe-most-that-16-trillion-to-hint-it-isnt-china/

    “Fully two-thirds of the national debt is owed to the U.S. government, American investors and future retirees, through the Social Security Trust Fund and pension plans for civil service workers and military personnel. China, it turns out, holds less than 8 percent of the money our government has borrowed over the years.

    “It is true that China is the largest foreign owner of our debt,” said Josh Gordon, policy director of the Concord Coalition, a Virginia-based nonprofit that advocates getting the nation’s debt under control. “But the vast majority of our debt is held by us.”

    Note China’s share is about 8% of our total debt.

    Here’s two idiots (Obama & Letterman) that could not count to 10 if they put both their ignorant heads together.

  • AnnaS

    If his handlers have not given him the answers in advance on a piece of paper or teleprompter, he is at a loss. I believe whomever signed him up for this gig told him–don’t worry, just go play golf and take vacations, we will handle the rest.

  • l.barney

    “The national debt under my predecessor was-uh-let me think for a minute..It was uh..uh..Well, it’s ALL his fault you know..uh it was..Hold on a minute!..You know Dave, you should have a cue card on that somewhere on one of your skits, why don’t you?”

    Somewhere, the next Chinese “President” is laughing.
