Get Ready To #AskObama Why The Country's Credit Card Is Maxed Out

Tyler Durden's picture


The biggest farce of the day is about to unfold as Obama holds a "twitter hall" meeting in which he will accept questions, pre-cleared and moderated by Twitter itself, which means congratulations, about the economy and jobs. The town hall can be accessed by using the #AskJobs hash tag or at the website below. As usual, this will be merely another PR debacle in which everyone participating will see the questions which are not being answered, and ignore the softballs lobbed at the teleprompter in chief.

The live streaming is beginning:

The townhall site:

Some more details on the format:

While questions must be asked in the 140 character limit imposed by Twitter, the president will have free range in his answers. Shortened summaries of Obama’s responses will be posted to @townhall.

Twitter co-founder and Executive Chairman Jack Dorsey will read the questions and the president will offer his responses to an audience of 140 in the East Room of the White House, although the majority of the questions will come from Twitter users across the country, not from within the room.

Roughly 30 members of the audience will be Twitter followers from across the nation picked through the White House’s “Tweetup” page.  The VIPs will live tweet the event and get a chance to meet with senior policy officials afterwards, according to the White House.

Obumma has certainly provided 'change' from Bush, he's 3 times worse!!!

this is the most inept and incompetent President in US history, no experience and clueless. The only reason you don't know it because just as his campaign was a toxic mushroom cloud of mass media pumped bullshit his protection racket at the biggest spending orgy with the least results in global history is also complete.

Hat tip to the US media for being totally corrupt and rammed with spineless crones with not a single questioning journalist amoung them.

I counted Obumma three times worse than Bush based on his tripling of Bush's historic budget deficits which Obumma criticised and voted against at the time ...when Obumma tripled it he then put out he retracted his previous criticism of Bush running deficits and was wrong...!

...i make him a Triple Turkey on that basis (financially certified by the $$$numbers) and someone who won't vote for Christmas even if it's in the best interests of the country he deserves stuffing too, 3 times for good measure!!!

You may want to stop treating official numbers as truth. Large amounts of expenses, especially war-related, were kept off-balance during Bush.

There is no difference between pseudo-leftwing and pseudo-rightwing parties, besides of aesthetic ones.

Yeah, that's a very odd figure that gets trotted out.  "Tripled budget deficits."

You do realize a big part of the reason for that is because he budgeted the expense of the wars, right?

If he had left Iraq and Afghanistan off-budget, as the previous Administration had done, the budget-deficits wouldn't have changed so dramatically.  But spending wouldn't be any lower.  Federal deficit spending would be just as vast--it just wouldn't be as big a "budget deficit."

As if that matters at all.

Ought to be clear on that.  It's one of that statistics that many folks repeat without understanding, and that can reflect poorly on those of us who hate Obama and are well-informed.

Last week I was for 2 weeks in New York and during my stay I visited Madame Tusseaud where they had a wax statue of you and your wife.


Now here comes my question:

1 Do not fret because of those who are evil
   or be envious of those who do wrong;
2 for like the grass they will soon wither,
   like green plants they will soon die away.

 3 Trust in the LORD and do good;
   dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
4 Take delight in the LORD,
   and he will give you the desires of your heart.

 5 Commit your way to the LORD;
   trust in him and he will do this:
6 He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn,
   your vindication like the noonday sun.

 7 Be still before the LORD
   and wait patiently for him;
do not fret when people succeed in their ways,
   when they carry out their wicked schemes.

 8 Refrain from anger and turn from wrath;
   do not fret—it leads only to evil.
9 For those who are evil will be destroyed,
   but those who hope in the LORD will inherit the land.

 10 A little while, and the wicked will be no more;
   though you look for them, they will not be found.
11 But the meek will inherit the land
   and enjoy peace and prosperity.

 12 The wicked plot against the righteous
   and gnash their teeth at them;
13 but the Lord laughs at the wicked,
   for he knows their day is coming.

 14 The wicked draw the sword
   and bend the bow
to bring down the poor and needy,
   to slay those whose ways are upright.
15 But their swords will pierce their own hearts,
   and their bows will be broken.

 16 Better the little that the righteous have
   than the wealth of many wicked;
17 for the power of the wicked will be broken,
   but the LORD upholds the righteous.

 18 The blameless spend their days under the LORD’s care,
   and their inheritance will endure forever.
19 In times of disaster they will not wither;
   in days of famine they will enjoy plenty.

 20 But the wicked will perish:
   Though the LORD’s enemies are like the flowers of the field,
   they will be consumed, they will go up in smoke.

 21 The wicked borrow and do not repay,
   but the righteous give generously;
22 those the LORD blesses will inherit the land,
   but those he curses will be destroyed.

 23 The LORD makes firm the steps
   of the one who delights in him;
24 though he may stumble, he will not fall,
   for the LORD upholds him with his hand.

 25 I was young and now I am old,
   yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken
   or their children begging bread.
26 They are always generous and lend freely;
   their children will be a blessing.[b]

 27 Turn from evil and do good;
   then you will dwell in the land forever.
28 For the LORD loves the just
   and will not forsake his faithful ones.

   Wrongdoers will be completely destroyed[c];
   the offspring of the wicked will perish.
29 The righteous will inherit the land
   and dwell in it forever.

 30 The mouths of the righteous utter wisdom,
   and their tongues speak what is just.
31 The law of their God is in their hearts;
   their feet do not slip.

 32 The wicked lie in wait for the righteous,
   intent on putting them to death;
33 but the LORD will not leave them in the power of the wicked
   or let them be condemned when brought to trial.

 34 Hope in the LORD
   and keep his way.
He will exalt you to inherit the land;
   when the wicked are destroyed, you will see it.

 35 I have seen a wicked and ruthless man
   flourishing like a luxuriant native tree,
36 but he soon passed away and was no more;
   though I looked for him, he could not be found.

 37 Consider the blameless, observe the upright;
   a future awaits those who seek peace.[d]
38 But all sinners will be destroyed;
   there will be no future[e] for the wicked.

 39 The salvation of the righteous comes from the LORD;
   he is their stronghold in time of trouble.
40 The LORD helps them and delivers them;
   he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,
   because they take refuge in him.

Norway seems to be doing alright, and they understand the importance of separating church and state. Though I don't think you could call them 'Ayn Randian'. Coincidence? I guess so, by your line of reasoning.

I saw a doc on the Gestapo and life in NAZI-land recently (They Thought They Were Free ... I think it was) and actually the Gestapo was not all that large. Here's the scary part: most of their "intelligence" was gathered by volunteer "good citizens" denouncing their neighbors, friends and even family members. Does that sound a bit familiar?

Sure enough it does, a lot of the propaganda machine after WWII was imported here to assist our masters in propaganda. They were given immunity and set up shop in the burgeoning intelligence apparatus at the time. Much of their work is still the foundation for how our masters run things. See something say something is but the latest name for an ongoing campaign to recruit 'good citizens' to aid in the snuffing out of legitimate dissent.

I agree with that 10%, sounds like a college tax essentially which you will pay most of your life. Plain stupid. If you make debt harder to come by (ie not a gov subsidized racket), the colleges will be forced to lower their costs (and tuition) to make it affordable, or at least a worthy investment.

the trouble is , that these foreign assholes come here on student visas and don't leave. i mean how long has this gone on.  the muslim invasion started after the javits bill that was rammed through congress in 1965. i used to go to the college library and look around and see all of these chinese people and dotheads, and smelly arabs......i used to get sick of it. even as young as i was, i never liked them being here but i didn't understand what was going on then. when they started aborting children in 1970, the colleges needed warm bodies. so they started letting foreign students come here and study. the problem is however, that they overstay their welcome. they are not imbedded here. this country is dead, as we have known it.  americans can't even find adequate employment and this was always the problem for a long time. it is totally unfair that companies hire these foreigners at a cheaper rate than americans , and do it on the H1B visas, etc.

We are experiencing some difficulties because somebody dropped some ice on the upper-deck.


All first class passengers need to report on the upper-deck near the life boat for questionning about who dropped the ice! THOSE WHO DROPPED IT WILL BE PUT IN THE LIFEBOATS AND MUST ROW AT LEAST 1 MILE AWAY FROM THE TITANIC AND STAY THERE UNTILL ANOTHER BOAT PICKS THEM UP!!


We are doing this to show the 3rd class passengers that justice always prevails!! THERE WILL BE NO ESCAPING FROM YOUR PENALTIES!!
