Doubling Down on Debt: It’s a Snow Job

Apparently Big Guy has had a change of heart with respect to our national debt situation:

“The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents – #43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.”

It looks like he voted against being irresponsible and unpatriotic before voting in favor of both. irresponsibility

Let’s get the facts: when Big Guy took office, our National debt was $9 trillion. In addition to last summer’s increase (which was supposed to be accompanied by budget cuts TBD by the “Super Committee”) which raised the ceiling to $15.1 trillion, he’s now going to request the do-nothing Congress (btw, some think doing nothing would be an improvement) approve another increase of $1.2 trillion, which is expected to be enough to get us through the 2012 election.


That will raise the national debt ceiling to over $16 trillion! More than DOUBLE what Big Guy started out with! It’s almost like the miracle of the loaves and fishes, only in reverse. And I think it might be our plan for balancing the budget by having everyone pay their fair share: “You have 5 loaves of bread and 3 fish. I’ll just take 6 loaves and 4 fish, and you can keep the rest.”


Meanwhile, back at campaign fund raising central, here are a few suggestions for what you might want to do with that “extra” $40 that Big Guy ensured you’ll be seeing in your paycheck (or $20, depending on which version of “get the facts” you’re consulting for the truth).

Get in the game! Contribute today to win a seat at Lady M and Big Guy’s dining table!

this could be youWe won’t be teaching you how to fish, butt there will be caviar!

Or…you could skip the dinner and just order a pair of these beauties for only $30!

O martiniGenuine, Obama Hope-Themed martini glasses!

Now you too can enjoy one of Big Guy and Lady M’s favorite high octane cocktails: dirty Stoli Martinis in style! (Note: Stolichnaya vodka and olives not included)

And if you really enjoy dirty martinis, how about a nicely etched pitcher to make up a whole batch of them at once for only $50?

O pitcher

Also good for mixing up a batch of Kool-Aid for the believers. (note: for the unconverted or  apostates add a full bottle of Stoli and administer 1 hour prior to driving them to the polls)

The whole concept makes me a little squeamish: swilling high-octane martinis for HOPE and CHANGE? It sounds like they may have a rather large carbon footprint; that’s not going to sit well with the environmentalists.   

Meanwhile, some of the Wons were spotted yesterday in their favorite tee shirts. Wee Won-2 sported her John Lennon memorial tee:

He wrote so many of her daddy’s favorite songs: Crippled Inside, Mother, You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away, Cold Turkey, Nowhere Man and, of course, Give Peas a Chance.

And Big Guy wore this ad for his favorite shave ice stand:
