    Appearing on Letterman's TV show, Obama says he doesn't know what the national debt is.

    Obama has time to meet with Letterman but no time to meet with Netanyahu about Israel facing nuclear destruction by Iran.

    The U.S. needs a new president who takes the national debt, as well as foreign policy and national security, seriously.

    'The U.S. needs a new president who takes the national debt, as well as foreign policy and national security, seriously.'

    I'm fairly sure that 'say the wrong thing at the wrong time' Romney is not going to be the president the US needs.

    They need someone who doesn't look a complete idiot everytime he opens his mouth.

    Vote Obama

    Watch the clip. Obama is asked if he remembers what the "debt clock" said at the RNC. That's what he doesn't remember "precisely", as he said.

    He then goes on to say, which the right-wing ignores, that we owe most of the debt to ourselves and smoothly debunks a ton of right-wing misinformation.

    This is such pathetic sore loserdom. Romney is a terrible candidate and the American people don't want Ryan's "vouchercare" or "cat food for seniors budget." Next time pick a candidate who can win and policies Americans want and maybe you'll win.

    Full clip here, which jockfever didn't post because it shows what a desperate liar he is:

    He also smoothly delivers some left-wing misinformation. He describes the things needed to cure the debt, but of course when he had control of the government his first 2 years in office he did virtually none of that. Not blaming Obama for anything, but not going to let him get away with blaming Republicans for it all either. Plenty of blame to go around.

    That's truly refreshing to hear, CJAZ.

    And I admire you for saying in another thread that you won't mind if President Obama wins--------and that you plan to have a thriving business no matter the election results. THAT'S A HEALTHY ATTITUDE.

    And it's also good to realize that in President Obama's second term he will be dealing with a THOROUGHLY REBUKED REPUBLICAN PARTY...

    ....whose members will be less able to OBSTRUCT EVERY POSITIVE GOAL THE PRESIDENT PUTS FORTH...

    .....as you remember, all to well, the Repubs were Hell-bent on "making sure this president fails"...

    ......during the time that you describe as "when he had control of the government his first 2 years in office".

    YES, I think we can all feel good about the next 4 years as Repubs are forced to work on behalf of all of us-----not just their partisan interests.

    Cart before horse much? First of all, the Dems have their hands full just getting Obama re-elected. Secondly, while I admire your positive outlook, you might want to not get your hopes too high that Obama, IF re-elected, will be getting a congress that will grant him carte blanche on everything he wants to push through. Part of being a strong leader is having the ability to break through and bring both sides together in the interest of the country. He so far has not proven himself adept at doing this.

    GREAT POINTS, CJAZ.

    Let's all do our best to make sure that the Repubs aren't as OBSTRUCTIONIST during President Obama's second term.

    And you are quite right about containing my optimism for his reelection.

    It should be noted that, should Romney win, he will likely be faced with the same "obstructionist" mentality from the other side. The test of a true leader is being able to break through that, bring both sides to the table, and get down to business and getting it done. Romney proved himself adept at this as the Governor of a very liberal state. He will be faced with the same challenge that Obama was.

    You do know that don't you
    and That was EVEN after the democrats asked your side what they wanted in that bipartisan bill ... a Bill you guys cowrote and sponsored
    ... but you blocked it anyway

    about the REPUBLICANS BLOCKING THE VETERANS JOBS BILL:

    Veterans’ Jobs Bill Blocked in the Senate
    By JENNIFER STEINHAUER in the NYTimes/The Caucus blog

    Eager to shoot down President Obama’s legislative agenda just weeks before the election,

    Senate Republicans on Wednesday blocked a measure that would have provided $1 billion over five years to help veterans find work in their communities.

    The measure, which would have potentially created jobs for up to 20,000 veterans, was blocked on a procedural point by Republicans "


    IF YOU CARE ABOUT OUR VETERANS....

    ...STOP THESE REPUBLICANS!

    jock 1, THAT'S CUTE......but as an argument there's no substance here.

    This whole "53%" nonsense was a sassy little phrase created by Erick Erickson of the extreme right site RedState.com.

    UNFORTUNATELY, Erick's numbers were totally bogus.

    There is no such thing as one group of Americans of FORTY-SEVEN PERCENT ......WHO ARE TAKERS.

    You do realize that this 47% includes ACTIVE DUTY SERVICE PEOPLE....WHO HAVE GIVEN YOU THE FREEDOM TO POST FREELY...and sit here doing your version of 'community service'.

    It's not about having time to meet with Netanyahu, it's about not giving in to the demands of tinpot dictators who are closely allied with your political opponents.


    Netanyahu is, to be quite frank, one of the most likely causes of the next world war. The man needs to be ignored.

    I pity my liberal Israeli friends.

    I certainly hope this doesn't mean that President Obama is allied with pirates, as he was pictured meeting with this fellow yesterday!

    Hey, Einstein !
    Stop getting your "news" from Faux News.
    Our President did not meet with this fellow yesterday.
    And, Faux News already made a retraction.

    Fool.

    Laurence: I'm fairly sure that 'say the wrong thing at the wrong time' Romney is not going to be the president the US needs. They need someone who doesn't look a complete idiot everytime he opens his mouth. Vote Obama

    jockfever: National debt has the potential to destroy a nation.

    Either the occupant of the White House pretended that he doesn't know what the national debt was when he took office, as well as what it is now, or he is out of touch.

    Both are good reasons to vote against him.

    Every informed citizen knows that the national debt was roughly $10 trillion when Obama took office and in less than four years it has grown to roughly $16 trillion, with no end to the growth in sight, and no credible solution offered by Obama and his accomplices.

    For Obama zombies, the truth is "the wrong thing at the wrong time."

    The truth reveals that Obama is a domestic and foreign policy disaster.

    When Romney correctly states that we should not apologize for American values, the Left is outraged.

    Most of America is outraged by the Left's preemptive surrender approach to foreign policy, with its disastrous results around the world, especially in the Middle East.

    When Romney talks about 47% of Americans being "dependent" on government, the Left is outraged that he would tell the truth.

    Most of America is outraged that the figure is 47%.

    The media narrative is that the president is winning, and that Romney is the issue. Obama zombies may embrace those delusions right up to the election, when Romney will win big.

    You want to cut the debt? Start with the deficit to begin with.

    We need a President that says okay were bringing the troops home and cease the continuing money pit of our military which drains our deficit every single freaking year.

    We all bitch and complain about our debt and most of it comes from our defense spending but if you dare say you want to cut the defense budget, Americans cry like babies, what about the terrorists. America has Americans wrapped around her little fingers.

    Here is another tidbit. America spends $7 per Senior Citizen for each $1 it spends per child. Talk about a mismatch.

    The debt will continue to rise and it will be both parties fault.

    Christian73 ...Full clip here, which jockfever didn't post because it shows what a desperate liar he is

    jockfever: Your Dear Leader is a serial liar. You desperately want him to keep lying for another four years.

    He says that the national debt is not a problem now. Let every drone who believes that pay his $50,000 share of the national debt.

    He says that reducing the debt requires a "balanced" approach, which is code language for higher taxes.

    Even in a recession, he and his Statist party want to raise taxes so they can keep growing big bloated government. He makes no serious effort to cut spending unless it's to hollow out the military and NASA and spend the money elsewhere to buy votes from government dependents.

    The Republican Congress under Newt Gingrich and John Kasick balanced the budget in four years without raising taxes. The Pretender in Chief tried to give BJ Clinton credit for that. If he's not lying, he's deceiving and manipulating drones.

    P.S. Here's yet another Obama "prevarication" on the Letterman show.

    “Obama’s answer was a masterpiece of prevarication. He described how the debt originated, and claimed, falsely, that he inherited a $1 trillion deficit. In fact, this country had never run a deficit anywhere near $1 trillion until FY 2009, the first year of the Obama administration.”

    http://www.inquisitr.com/337614/obama-to-letterman-i-dont-remember-how-much-the-national-debt-is-video/#IzU54DuKaQjzADaY.99


    You can believe the serial liar in the White House or you can believe an accomplished investor like Jim Rogers:


    Rogers, who for years has been an outspoken critic of the Feds policies of "Quantitative Easing," says the world is "drowning in too much debt." He put the blame squarely on U.S. and European governments for abusing their "license to print money." In the U.S. alone, the national debt has surged to nearly $16 trillion, that's more than $50,000 for every American man, woman and child.

    "[They] need to stop spending money they don't have," Rogers said. "The solution to too much debt is not more debt... What would make me very excited is if a few people [in the government] went bankrupt..." Rogers added.

    Rogers also charged Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel with promoting dangerous policies that create the illusion the economy is stable... but are really only intended to buy time before their upcoming elections.

    The Obama Administration’s jackass joyride is a journey to more debt, and economic disaster.

    WE GOT YOUR MONEY GONNA SPEND YOUR MONEY
    GONNA PRINT SOME MORE MONEY

    jockfever, ARE YOU AWARE......that.......

    JIM ROGERS......DOES NOT SUPPORT MITT ROMNEY ?

    'Mitt Romney will only enrich his own friends.'

    But then again, you can take comfort in the fact that Jim Rogers supports Ron Paul-----so that tells you of his hold on reality.

    Also since 2007, Jim Rogers has moved his financial interests entirely to Asia. HE LOVES CHINA-------but wouldn't live there because of the pollution he says. So he lives in Singapore.

    He's made it clear on many occasions that he has no interest in the financial recovery of the USA or of Europe. His bets are all in Asia.

    jockfever: Ron Paul (R) is no longer running. He urges a return to Constitutional government, i.e., a massive reduction in the size and scope of the federal government, which conservatives fully support.

    Singapore has one of the most dynamic economies on earth, based on individual liberty and free markets. B. Hussein Obama is not about making the U.S.more like Singapore. He's about making the U.S. more like Cuba and North Korea.

    Rogers blames both parties for bad domestic and foreign policies. Fair enough, but when conservative Republicans win offices, they try to limit the size and scope of the federal government, and are feverishly opposed by Statist Democrats.

    Romney was not my first choice either. Now that he's the nominee, I support him 100% because the alternative is national suicide.

    If Rogers votes, he will vote for a private sector winner, not a failed Marxist loser.

    Keep talking.
