Obama tells Stephanopoulos nation’s debt is no biggie; Stephanopoulos fails to ask about Benghazi

On Monday, citizens took to Twitter to urge lapdog George Stephanopoulos to ask President Obama about the Benghazi terrorist attack. It’s been six months and Americans still don’t have answers; Families still don’t have justice.

The interview aired Tuesday morning on “Good Morning America” and Stephanopoulos’ feelings on the matter quickly became clear: What difference, at this point, does it make?

Stephanopoulos didn’t bother with any questions about the attack, but he did give the president an opportunity to minimize the nation’s debt problems. Shorter Obama: No biggie!

More than 16 trillion in debt? Totally “sustainable,” says Obama.

[W]e don’t have an immediate crisis in terms of debt. In fact, for the next ten years, it’s gonna be in a sustainable place.

Reality is hard.

Yes, isn’t that odd?

    This is too insane to bother commenting.

    • almarquardt

      My thoughts exactly.

    • IronButterfly

      It is insane but I will comment because if Rand Paul can go for 13 hours I can write a short response.
      What we are seeing is the third great lie. The first great lie is that the two wars caused all of our debt and economic problems because we did not pay for them with tax increases (Bushes fault). Second great lie is that the rich don’t pay their fair share. Now we have the third great lie. The current deficit and accrued debt are not a problem for this country.
      Unless the Repubs-conservitives completely refute the first two will will not be able to refute this hideous lie.

    a quick summary of this “hustler magazine interview”…. georgey: OH BARAKA, I LOVE YOU!!!!! ALL OF US IN THE MEDIA LOVE YOU!!!! –georgey dropping to his knees, kissing king barry’s shoez–
    emperor baraka: “yeah, yeah, whatever, you plebes are adequate…. turn around, drop trow, and bend over… I’m late for my tee time”

    POTUS isn’t worried – his legacy will be immortalized by the fanboys and girls who rewrite his history daily.

    It was Stephanopolous, who set up the “free contraception” issue in the primary debate.
    The red herring that launched a thousand Flukes.

    The basics of journalism: who, what, when, where and how serve no purpose when you actively further an agenda rather than report it.

    Obama said:

    ” In fact, for the next ten years, it’s gonna be in a sustainable place”

    I am sure that a Socialist Chicago liberal’s definition of “sustainable” is very, very, different than mine!!!

    I copy/pasted Obama statement on debt into an email and sent it to my credit card company. They should be raising my limit any day now.

    • Michelle

      That’s the part that really confuses me. How does he not understand this? If my income is lower than my bills, do I get to go to my employer and demand a raise (which is what he does demanding tax increases) or do I get to go to my credit card companies and demand they increase my limit (which is what he does when he demands an increase in the debt ceiling)? No, if I can’t pay my bills, I do not get to demand a raise or demand higher spending limits on my credit cards – I would have to CUT MY SPENDING and live within my means. Americans by the millions live this way and somehow get by, why does he think Washington can’t do the exact same? It’s simple math and finances. It escapes him.

      • sb36695

        Makes you wonder if he does understand. What if destruction is his goal?

  • Fernandida

    Obama and demoKKKrats next victims….WILL BE THE MIDDLE CLASS. They are coming for us next with massive tax hikes.

      They’ve already come after those of us in the middle class.

      too late.

  • sb36695

    So if you can’t get past 7th grade math, you don’t understand debt? Are we dumbed down enough yet? Must be because we reelected Obama!

    • mdtljt

      Please don’t lump those of us who were NOT insane enough to vote for him in with the lib/prog, LIV morons who did…steel wool couldn’t scrub off THAT stink!!!

      • sb36695

        Sorry, but there is a sickness in this country. Why can’t we reach them? We’re past the tipping point. Prepare and good luck patriots!

    *SmartAssLogicAhead* Obama is correct in *his* thinking that there isn’t a debt crisis and of course it’s *no biggie* to him. All he has to do is continue to use the US and it’s citizens like a rented mule, go overseas and act like the US is some sort of dog and pony show then he gets to collect a paycheck and have his vacations paid for. Of course there’s no problem here and just move along ok.

  • Maxx

    What do you expect from a man that if he hadn’t of landed a job in Illinois politics, would probably right now, be paying his March credit card bill with a cash advance.

    He truly doesn’t even understand the CONCEPT of a budget.

    The only people more clueless than him are those who sent him BACK to the WH.

  • Midnight Cow

    I read the ABC interview transcript, and now all I can think is, “Yeah Yeah.”

  • kim

    if it is sustainable and not a crisis, then why has he spent 4 years demanding higher taxes to pay on it?

  • TocksNedlog

    Give him points for honesty — he admitted that he’s going to sustain the debt and that he really has no plans to reduce it.

    Oprah should revive her daytime show just so he can go on in front of an audience of people’s grand kids and say: “Guess what? You’re getting fvcked, and YOU are getting fvcked, and you and you and you and you! You’re ALL getting cars!!! Uh, I mean you’re all getting fvcked.”

    • SJ’s Dad

      GREAT POST!!! . . . but . . . .ummmm . . . . you misspelled . . . “CZARS”!!!!!!

  • gekkobear

    What percentage of our GDP is our debt? Slightly over 100%.

    What percentage will it be after a decade of “sustainable” debt management? 100%? 90%?

    Oh… more like 150%…

    Well that makes sense; if you’re unfamiliar with the word “sustainable” and don’t know what it means.

    Stephanlottapuss neglected to ask about Benghazi? Shocker.

    • Jay Stevens

      Want to bet that that was one of the topics they (well, Obama) agreed not to talk about?

    Not surprised nothing on Benghazi…..when Stephanopolous asked for questions only about 90% of the questions submitted referenced Benghazi.

  • Kenneth James Abbott

    It was a crisis when the solution was to raise taxes.

    Now that the solution is obviously to cut spending, it’s not such a big problem.

  • bonnieblue2A

    The debt is a tool Obama is using to bring down the nation his mother and father hated. Those where their dreams to bring down this Republic; so of course to Obama, the debt is “no biggie”.

    D’Souza was right in his documentary 2016.

    When you habitually spend other people’s money,
    of course there is no such thing as a debt crisis.
