We have lost our ambition, our imagination, and our willingness to do the things that built the Golden Gate Bridge.
— President Obama at a fundraiser in San Francisco on Tuesday October 25, 2001.
I’m sorry Mr. President, but I haven’t lost anything. And I have a problem with any politician who gets on a stage and tries to convince me I’m a big fat zero.
Here’s a thought: What if we spent all of what we borrow on interests here at home instead of giving a significant portion of it to another country in the form of foreign aid. Don’t get me wrong — I’m all for us helping our allies in times of need, but borrowing from Peter to pay Paul is not fiscal responsibility in a weak economy.
