The dim bulbs at The View ask why Barack Obama SHOULD show his birth certificate. The answer to that: if there had been doubt, or a lack of history and documentation, any president should have been asked to do so, and I’ll jump out and say there is no past
president who would have refused to show his natural-born status. As hubby says, this conversation is all about the ladies of The View understanding there is doubt, and if these demands continue, their boy is in trouble. Barbara Walters takes the opportunity to mention the deficit G.W. Bush left for Barack Obama.
LISTEN TO THE APPLAUSE when Donald Trump says “I want him to show his birth certificate. I want him to show his birth certificate.” Whoopie thinks it’s racial. Trump says there is something on the birth certificate Obama does not want us to see. The ladies are apoplectic. You can hear nothing conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck has to say. She is drowned out sufficiently to make her the intended tool.
Note to Barbara: Obama’s three year spending binge is 37% higher than G.W.’s entire 8-year presidency. Obama’s last three budgets called for over $1 trillion in spending – each. No other president has ever asked for half that.
“In a fair accounting, President Obama is responsible (along with the then-Democratic Congress) for the $1.3 trillion in deficit spending in 2010 and the estimated $1.6 trillion in deficit spending in 2011. He is responsible for the projected $1.1 trillion in deficit spending in his recent budget proposal. He is also responsible for the approximately $200 billion that the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimates that his economic “stimulus” added to the deficit in 2009.
He [Obama] should not get credit, moreover, for the $149 billion in TARP (Troubled Asset Relief Program) repayments made in 2010 and 2011 to cover most of the $154 billion in bank loans that remained unpaid at the end of the 2009 fiscal year—loans that count against President Bush’s 2009 deficit tally. The Treasury Department says that all but $5 billion of the TARP bank loans has now been repaid. The portion of repayments that was for loans issued in 2009 should be deducted from Bush’s deficit tally, not credited to Obama as deficit savings.”
So “that” about the Bush deficit. About Donald Trump, this is his second time he has asked Obama to show his real birth certificate.
Note to Elisabeth Hasselbeck: Please school your screeching lady banshees on that egregious, flamboyant and irrelevant panel you endure. By the way, we are worried about you. You are disappearing right before our eyes.
