Default Don't Worry About That Silly Debt

Don't Worry About That Silly Debt

"[W]e don't have to worry about [the debt] short term." That's what Barack Obama told David Letterman this week. The late-night comedian had asked the president about the debt, even wondering what the total dollar figure was when Obama took office. It was rather odd for an Obamaphile like Letterman to ask such an inconvenient question, but Obama deceptively deflected, "Uh, I don't remember what that number was precisely, but..." Of course he remembers that the debt was $10.6 trillion on Jan. 20, 2009, and that he and his Democrat buddies in Congress increased it to more than $16 trillion -- more than 50 percent -- in less than four years.

It's nice to know that the president isn't stressing himself out about the national fiscal disaster that he and his party largely created.
