This was on Drudge too, so it's keeping with the thread style. It's a hilarious video about Obama from Danish TV. That reminded me the Groundhod Day...Seer of Seers, Sage of Sages, Big Hope We Believe In Extraordinaire -- Barack the 1st

QuoteOriginally posted by: ppauperNational Debt has increased more under Obama than under BushBecause the Bush tax cuts for the rich are still in place and Republicans in Congress have blocked every attempt to get rid of them so far or used their renewal as a hostage for other necessary legislation (such as unemployment benefit for the victims of the Bush recession).

QuoteGross debt includes intergovernmental transactions such as bonds held by Social Security and Medicare, but public debt is the more commonly used figure of national indebtedness, at least among economists.(snip) If the chart were recast to show how much the debt went up as a percentage of GDP, it would look pretty bad for Obama after not even three years in office. In fact, Obama does almost twice as poorly as Reagan ? and four times worse than George W. Bush. Reagan: plus 14.9 percentage pointsGHW Bush: plus 7.1 percentage pointsClinton: down 13.4 percentage pointsGW Bush: plus 5.6 percentage pointsObama: plus 24.6 percentage points (Note: We derived most of these data from table 7.1 of the budget office historical tables, which gives end-of-fiscal year figures, so they do not quite match up to presidential terms. Obama?s figures are based on the GDP: public debt ratio as of June 30, 2011) Clinton did very well because Gingrich took control of the congress

Technically, it should be a better user experience than satelite but rarely was. Although if being "technically" better was all that mattered, we'd all have been watching betamax videos and listening to personal music on Zunes.
