President Obama: There Is No Debt Crisis
There has been no shortage of dire warnings about the mounting US national debt, but President Obama is now offering a different assessment: no big deal........

I don't like my Prime Minister, Stephen Harper. I don't like him one bit. But anyone who makes it to leading a nation like the US, Canada, Germany, etc cannot be stupid. S/he can be a LOT of things, but not stupid.
Like I said, can't stand Harper. However, he is possibly the outright smartest PM we've ever had. Two inches left of evil, but incredibly intelligent.
Basically, if someone as stupid as everyone says Obama is can become President, what does that say about the rest of you in your workaday lives?

Not the rest of us. I didn't vote for him...
EDIT: And to qualify my opinion of stupid...
Merriam-Webster defines stupid as, "given to unintelligent decisions or acts : acting in an unintelligent or careless manner"
Saying that a country that is $16.7 billion in debt, has a spending to GDP ratio of -41.4% and has a debt that is growing at $3 million PER MINUTE, is not in a debt crisis, is acting unintelligently and carelessly when he makes that statement...thus, stupid.

What have you done? If this ignoramous made it to President, surely you of average-to-above-average intelligence have been there done that and are now working on your memoirs and a speaking tour?
That's my point. If he's such a moron and he can be President, then you and everyone else must be required to wear helmets at all times.

So many people in Washington don't think that the debt is a problem and that it won't be a problem for another 10-12 years, and its such a horrible way to think. Basically they think that its best to wait until the last minute and that we need more stimulus in the economy. The more debt the US has, the more of our money is being thrown away on interest. Why does nobody understand that?ďPeople just do the strangest things when they believe they are entitled...But they do even stranger things when they just plain believe.Ē

Many, many economists will tell you that the larger problem (much larger than the size of the debt) is getting the economy back running at full speed. Only when this is accomplished will the ability to cut the debt substantially be possible.
