Worst President Ever Number of the Weekend: 3 Days, $1,522,047,977.90 More in Debt


Try not to fix the deficit. That would be impossible. Instead, only try to realize the truthiness: there is no deficit.

Between Tuesday March 20th and Friday March 22nd, 2012 (the last business day) $1,522,047,977.90 is the amount to the penny added by the Obama administration to the national debt.

That's three days of a failed Presidency and $1.5 BILLION more of your children's labor being sold to the Chinese.

Whoa.

UPDATE: I'm in a very Steyn mood today:

was in Australia earlier this month and there, as elsewhere on my recent travels, the consensus among the politicians I met (at least in private) was that Washington lacked the will for meaningful course correction, and that, therefore, the trick was to ensure that, when the behemoth goes over the cliff, you’re not dragged down with it. It is faintly surreal to be sitting in paneled offices lined by formal portraits listening to eminent persons who assume the collapse of the dominant global power is a fait accompli. “I don’t feel America is quite a First World country anymore,” a robustly pro-American Aussie told me, with a sigh of regret.
If it weren't for the baby-eating dingos, I might think about emigrating.
