National Debt


 Kliphnote: How many fools refuse to blame Obama for anything?
As the US gets weaker by the day.
Would those who voted for Obama also vote for Karl Marx?
I bet they would.

Ludwig von Mises: "The educated strata are more gullible than the less educated.  The most enthusiastic supporters of Marxism, Nazism, and Fascism were the intellectuals, not the boors."

"If you're not a liberal at twenty, you have no heart; if you're not a conservative at forty, you have no brain."- Winston Churchill  

Why are A students so hateful? I’m sure up at Harvard, over at the New York Times, and inside the White House they think we just envy their smarts. Maybe we are resentful clods gawking with bitter incomprehension at the intellectual magnificence of our betters. If so, why are our betters spending so much time nervously insisting that they’re smarter than Sarah Palin and the Tea Party movement?

CBS's Mark Knoller reported Monday evening at that "The National Debt has now increased more during President Obama's three years and two months in office than it did during 8 years of the George W. Bush presidency." 

"The Debt rose $4.899 trillion during the two terms of the Bush presidency. It has now gone up $4.939 trillion since President Obama took office," the veteran White House correspondent noted.

But for all their professed obsession with all things inside the Beltway, Politico failed has so far failed to cover the story (h/t email tipster James Harper). Searches of the Politico website for "national debt" or "Bureau of Public Debt" between March 19 and today yield no hits. By contrast, when then-President-elect Obama was gearing up to take office, Politico was certain to skewer Bush for leaving him a massive national debt.
