Happy New Year! You're on the Hook for a Cool Trillion... Per Year... For Life

A smiling Barack Obama goes to meet with Congressional leaders. Later he announced that he is down with deficits of a trillion per year. Happy New Year!

Meanwhile Democrat blogs are pointing out the hypocrisy of Republicans opposing large deficits. However, in their meager defense, KT at the Scratching Post, points out that things could have been worse.


  1. He seem completely non-plussed.... totally matter-of-fact about this predicament.

  2. A trillion dollars! We say it like 'Oh well, it's not that much in relation to GNP...yada,yada...'

    It's a trillion dollars people! That's 12 zeroes to the left of the decimal point...a million million dollars.

    Wake up America. We are placing a lien on the next several generations!

  3. Tony, thanks for stopping by and I couldn't agree more.

  4. The Republicans were poor stewards of the government, but never like this. Claiming that Republicans are hypocrites in this area is another example of the Democrats use of moral equivalence.
