The $6,000,000,000,000 Man

How many Americans are aware that Barack Obama is on the road to accumulating $6 trillion in new debt by the end of his term? When George W Bush took office in 2001 the national debt was some $6 trillion. That means that Barack Obama will have run up as much debt in four years as all US Presidents through Bill Clinton did over more than 200 years.

How many Americans are aware the the US government under Obama is borrowing $49,000 every second? That’s every second of every day for the last three years. While we are eating, while we are working, while we are making love, while we are sleeping each day, the government is borrowing more money every second than the average American earns in a year.

If you listened to Barack H Obama’s SOTU address, on Tuesday January 24, you will have heard little on the subject of deficits or debt. He did pay lip service to deficits but he did not repeat the pledge he made on February 23, 2009 when he said “And that’s why today I’m pledging to cut the deficit we inherited by half by the end of my first term in office.”

There was also no mention of the approaching debt limit or the request for an additional $1.2 trillion in borrowing authority which will bring the debt to a total of $16.39 trillion by the end of 2012. As of January 25, 2012 the National Debt  stands at
$ 1 5 , 2 4 0 , 2 6 4 , 1 3 7 , 5 8 5 . 7 1 .
The debt when Obama took office was $10,626,877,048,913.08. Again,  Barack Obama is asking for an additional $1.2 trillion in borrowing authority. That is what will make him the 6 Trillion Dollar Man.

Despite all this, Barack H Obama’s 2012 State of the Union address was a recycled list of government programs Obama desires. There was little new in Obama’s 65 minute speech. It was a compilation of distortions and unrealistic wishes. It broke no new ground and simply served as a campaign message from the Obama re-election effort.

There is no doubt that Barack Obama has no intention of addressing the problems of deficits and debt, entitlement reform, or joblessness in 2012. He is in full campaign mode and he intends to employ a scorched earth campaign to win re-election. He cannot run on his record, so his only alternative is to destroy his opponent, whoever that turns out to be. Be ready, people, for class warfare, character assassination, racial arson and endless calls for alleged fairness.

The days of Hope’nChange are gone. Gone also is the post-racial and post-partisan president. It was all delusion perpetrated by the Democrat Party and their willing accomplices in the main stream media. Now all we have remaining is a hard left president who insists that all will be well if we were to just pass into law some new permanent government programs. Damn the expense, full speed ahead on the road to national bankruptcy. Move over Greece, here comes the USA.

Election day 2012 may well be our last chance to escape. Four more years of Barack Hussein Obama may well mean the permanent decline of the United States of America. This nation cannot survive continuous trillion dollar plus annual deficits, continuous government expansion and endless entitlements. The deficits are unsustainable, the debt is so enormous that it can never be repaid, and the entitlement programs will collapse from their own weight.

Barack Obama has no solutions for the nations problems. In fact, Obama doesn’t even appear to recognize that there are problems. His 2012 SOTU address could have been phoned in, better yet, they could have just played the video of his 2011 State of the Union. He has no plans for the solutions of the many problems we face. His focus is totally on his re-election. He has gone on the road beating the class warfare drums. He is touting the lie that Debbie Bosanek, Warren Buffet’s secretary is being mistreated by the tax code even though she is probably a member of the 1% herself.

We had better get used to it, folks. Obama’s campaign is expected to come up with a billion dollars in campaign donations. That’s a lot of opposition research, negative ads, phone calls and “walking around money.” We won’t be able to escape it unless we live in a decommissioned missile silo without any electronic communication devices.

American voters will have to make a momentous decision next November. Will they choose to continue down the road chosen by Barack Obama or will they choose a new direction? Bigger government with Obama or a smaller government with any Republican? More deficit spending or less? Greater debt or pay down the debt. These are some of the choices. Let’s all pray the voters choose wisely this time.

Some readers will remember the 1970's TV show about the Six Million Dollar man, an astronaut with bionic implants and super powers. While Obama is clearly not graced with any special powers other than the constitutional ones he appropriates, can there be any doubt that a lovely lunchbox set and thermos will be on sale at The Obama re-election store?
