Does anybody really know what time it is?

Obama took some time out of his busy day partying with Beyonce and Jay-Z to appear on Letterman to feign ignorance about the size of the national debt:
Then Letterman went back to the tally: “Now, do you remember what that number was? Was it $10 trillion?”
Then came the payoff, as the president made clear that he really didn’t want to utter the word “16”: “I don’t remember what the number was precisely.”
He don't know nothin' about no debt.  This one:

Who's going to pay for this?  Sure, "the rich."

Extra - Powerline: "Obama's answer was a masterpiece of prevarication."

Ha ha ha! Beyonce and Jay-Z! Saying their names never gets old! What hilariously unpresidential starf**king!

But giving Clint Eastwood an improv spot on live TV, THAT was inspirational Americana. And when Kid Rock endorsed Romney in person, who could fail to be moved?

The point is, real leaders with real work schedules go on Leno. Except when Obama did it, that was pathetic.

Letterman, week "The View". It's a full schedule.

The number is 16 Trillion. Either he really doesn't know or care - and is therefore an incompetent idiot. Or he does know but is too embarrassed to admit the number.

I wonder how Letterman and the audience would have reacted. Do they even know how much a trillion is? A 16 followed by 12 zero's. A $billion sixteen thousand times.

Maybe they would better understand the number if we used it in a sentence.

Republicans will weep 16 trillion bitter tears of rage on November 6.

Romney would put on a pretty dress and sing "Love in This Club," if only Beyonce and Jay-Z would have him.,0,6122587.story

Romney so far has held far fewer public events than either presidential candidate did four years ago, and has spent a significant amount of time in states — Massachusetts, California, New York, Texas — that are not considered up for grabs in November.

Most of that time has been spent fundraising or preparing for his three coming debates with President Obama.

...It's now," said John Weaver, a veteran GOP political consultant who served as an advisor to McCain in 2000 and for a portion of his 2008 campaign. "To be doing fundraising events in Costa Mesa and Utah and Texas … they're going to have to change that. He is the challenger. He's going to have to work harder."

..."Romney doesn't seem to be out there campaigning enough," conservative writer and former Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan wrote in a scathing blog post this week. "He seems — in this he is exactly like the president — to always be disappearing into fund-raisers, and not having enough big public events."
