In a realistic sense Obama is not really a president and never was. Pure and simple he is a celebrity. Lets face it. The electorate is enamored with the guy.
Barry can give great speeches which I first noticed at the 2004 DNC. Although I never heard of him back then I must confess even I was impressed. He popped back on the scene in 2008 and was a smash hit. The Lord himself could have ran for president with Saint Peter as his VP and still lost. The electorate fell in love with his fiery rhetoric and his ability to control the rise of the oceans, but looked the other way when his actions failed to match it. Fast forward to 2012. If Broken promises, flat out lies, and hypocrisy were gold our now swollen $16 trillion debt would be zero. I can prove what I just said with almost 100% certainty. Here's something that I've been mulling around. These were some of the other Democratic contenders in the 2008 primary... Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, John Edwards, Chris Dodd, and Bill Richardson. I submit to you this. Had any one of these five been selected over Obama, and they delivered the exact same dismal record as Obama in 2012, they would have been out on their ear. The only reason Obama is still president is the shear force of his stardom pumped up by his adoring fans in the MSM and a naive, wide- eyed, not to mention stupid electorate.
At the present trajectory the debt will be $20 trillion in 2016. If we're not already there this sure as hell will be the point of no return. To calculate the jeopardy we're in take a look at this:
How Much Is A Billion?
The next time you hear a politician use the word "billion" casually think about whether you do, or don't, want that politician spending your tax money!!
A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, but an advertising agency did a good job of putting that figure in perspective in one of its releases:
A billion seconds ago, it was 1980.
A billion minutes ago, Jesus was alive.
A billion hours ago, our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.
A billion dollars ago, was only 8 hours and 20 minutes at the rate Washington spends.
Now try to get your head around we are $16 trillion in debt!
Think about this. The government is borrowing 40 cents on every dollar it spends. Now apply that to your own household. If you didn't have enough money to pay your bills and had to borrow 40 cents on every dollar to meet your monthly obligations how long do you think that could continue? We don't have a printing press in our basement to print money like the government. But even though they do the day will come when we have to pay the piper and that day will coincide with the downfall of Obama. Unfortunately it'll be too late.
Why I bother with this I don't know. No one ever listens.
