Be secret and take defeat
From any brazen throat,
For how can you compete,
Being honour bred, with one

……..Just To Get Elected

Obama, when debt was nine trillion,
Recoiling, declared it reptilian.
It was only talk;
There’s no walking the walk –

“The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents — #43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.”

The U.S. national debt has now doubled in his 6 years and is $18 trillion.
