Thank You President Obvious

The United States is out of money, when did this happen?

C-SPAN INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPT

SCULLY: Yet, it all takes money. You know the numbers, $1.7 trillion debt, a national deficit of $11 trillion. At what point do we run out of money?

OBAMA: Well, we are out of money now. We are operating in deep deficits, not caused by any decisions we’ve made on health care so far. This is a consequence of the crisis that we’ve seen and in fact our failure to make some good decisions on health care over the last several decades.

Pay careful attention to the expression of his face when he says that. It seems to be like some kind of a funny joke to him. And what’s Obama’s solution to the problem, even as he acknowledges America is already flat broke and seriously in debt? Hey, I, know, the obvious answer is to quadruple the deficit! That makes a lot of sense, doesn’t it? I mean the trick to getting out of debt is to borrow lots more money and spend it, right?

It’s a good thing the financial markets weren’t open when he made such a flippant remark.

/as Admiral Josh Painter said in The Hunt for Red October, “this business will get out of control, it will get out of control and we’ll be lucky to live through it”
