Obama forgets national debt, says ‘don’t have to worry about it short-term’
I watched Letterman last night and was also very surprised Obama didn't know current debt number or even ballpark. Seemed quite odd.

Yes, how odd! Obama’s penchant for lying wasn’t the only thing further exposed last night when he appeared on “The Late Show” with David Letterman.
The President of the United States does not know the national debt. He can’t even guess in the ballpark, give or take a few trillion! Let that sink in a minute, because there is more.
OBAMA yucking it up on Letterman & could not remember how much the NATIONAL DEBT WAS??WTH but said it did not matter in the SHORT TERM?

That’s right. President Obama said the national debt doesn’t even matter in the short-term.
Pres. Obama tells David Letterman the debt is not something we need to worry about in the short-term: http://t.co/uvkMeel2

Debt shmet! The most important thing is his campaign, natch. Let’s go to the video tape.
Wow – On Letterman last night Obama couldn’t remember how big debt is. http://t.co/iEqQamTN

On Letterman show Obama says national debt isn't big deal right now, just in the future. Just when u think you've heard it all….now this?

Eh, what’s a huge debt when Obama has a debilitating agenda to push? Whatever, future! No need to worry about anything now.
Citizens are outraged, and rightly so.
Obama to Letterman, on debt: "We don't have to worry about it short-term." Reality: US adds $4B in new debt per day. http://t.co/8HTG7ve8

POTUS tells Letterman he can't recall the national debt. I would have settled for rounding to the nearest trillion. http://t.co/ViO1xWBm

Obama actually said this about the national debt on Letterman: “I don’t remember what the number was precisely.” http://t.co/CZaCU7em

Letterman asked BHO if it was $10T nat'l debt on the clock @ the #RNC. Said he didn't know..REALLY? No idea? Not even ballpark? It's $16T!

Remember when Obama said GWB's nat'l debt was "unpatriotic"? Yeah. Good times. Told Letterman wrong to call other side that.

Is anyone in media willing to admit Obama was lying last night on letterman re: debt? Either lying or ignorant.

Ha! Members of the media will likely say that they won’t discuss it, because the Letterman video is “unauthenticated.” Like they claimed, in order to protect Obama, about the redistribution audio.
They will give anything to aid The One. Even their own dignity and integrity.
