Video: National Debt Explained in a Road Trip

The Political Math Blog has produced an excellent video explaining how fast Obama and the Dems are increasing the federal debt in comparison to past presidents (and recent past presidents weren't pikers).



Political Math explains, "I would like to state that I am not trying to defend President Bush’s spending. I personally think Bush was spending far too much. My preference would be to reduce the debt… or at least stay put and let inflation take it’s toll on the debt. My point in this video is that it is the most absurd hypocrisy for someone to complain about how much Bush spent and then yawn when Obama is spending so much more."

I am reminded of a song from my youth . . .

"Living easy, living free
Season ticket on a one-way ride
Asking nothing, leave me be
Taking everything in my stride
Don't need reason, don't need rhyme
Ain't nothing I would rather do
Going down, party time
My friends are gonna be there to

We're on a highway to hell
(don't stop me)

Isn't it amazing how restating something in familliar terms can help clear up an issue?

You are always so harsh on our government. Did you ever think you would be a majority stock holder in a car company and own so many banks at the same time? This is a once in a lifetime opportunity! What is the surest way to get a million dollars? Give four million to the goverment!
