Obama told Letterman the debt wasn't a short term problem, so don't worry about it. I'm sure he expects the homeless class will be starting businesses soon and hiring rich people to work for them as he rebuilds our economy from the bottom up. We all know that trickle down economics is a disaster. Trickle up economics is the formula that he plans to put in place. When asked about the deficit we are running he told Letterman he wasn't sure what it was when he took office. Gee how convenient. If I remember correctly it was around $10 trillion. Obama stated at $10 trillion, the deficit was un-American. Now we are $16 trillion plus, if he gets re-elected I wonder who he's going to blame for inheriting this deficit?
