Video: Obama Does Not Know the Size of the Debt
3:36 PM, Sep 20, 2012 • By JEFFREY H. ANDERSON
It’s a couple days old, but nevertheless worth watching: Here’s the clip of President Obama’s interview with David Letterman (which Steve Hayes discusses in greater detail here), during which Obama shows that he apparently has no idea how big our national debt is — apparently even to the nearest trillion (see around the 2:00 mark):
For the president’s benefit, here’s a link to the national debt clock, which shows that the national debt is $16 trillion. It also has a handy feature allowing one to see what the debt was exactly four years ago ($10 trillion), before the historic explosion of deficit spending under Obama.
When pressed by Letterman (Letterman!) on the debt, Obama reassures us that “we don’t have to worry about it short-term.” (Coming soon to a Romney campaign commercial near you….)
