Me­dia mum on Obama debt

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - FRANK MEDICO Mt. Ver­non, Vir­ginia

I com­mend you for dis­clos­ing that Pres­i­dent Obama will add al­most $10 tril­lion to the debt by the time he leaves of­fice — or al­most twice what all pres­i­dents have added, put to­gether (“$20 tril­lion man: Na­tional debt nearly dou­bles dur­ing Obama pres­i­dency,” Web, Nov. 1). Read­ers may re­call that in 2008 Sen. Obama stood on the Sen­ate floor and called Pres­i­dent Bush “ir­re­spon­si­ble” and “un­pa­tri­otic” for adding $4 tril­lion to the debt over a pe­riod of eight years. That’s al­most two-and-a-half times less than Mr. Obama will have added dur­ing his two terms in of­fice.

Where is the rest of the bi­ased me­dia in this? Why are they not mak­ing an is­sue of the dis­as­trous deb­tadding that will sad­dle our chil­dren and grand­chil­dren with enor­mous sums to pay?

I hope that come 2016 the vot­ers will have learned that one doesn’t elect a pres­i­dent who needs on-the­job train­ing.
