At a White House press conference today, President Barack Obama said that "professional politicians" understand the debt crisis better than "the public."
Obama was responding to a question from CBS News Reporter Chip Reid. “The latest CBS News poll showed that only 24 percent of Americans said that you should raise the debt limit to avoid an economic catastrophe," said Reid. "There’s still 69 percent who oppose raising the debt limit. So, is it the problem that you and others have failed to convince the American people that we have a crisis here and how are you going to change that?”
“Now, without relitigating the past, I’m absolutely convinced, and the vast majority of economists are convinced, that the steps we took in the Recovery Act saved millions of people their jobs or created a whole bunch of jobs,” Obama said at his Monday press conference.

I remember when the healthcare bill got shoved down our throats. Something like 70% opposed it and yet, we apparently don't know what's good for us.
Keep getting those vaccinations. Keep drinking the water. Pay no attention to the planes in the sky. Ignore the wars cuz I don't need to follow the Constitution. Blah blah blah...
THROW HIM OUT!

I believe what Obama really meant was
the average citizen does not understand
how the professional politicians are ripping
us all off as almost every single household
in America knows what a budget is and has
to live by one.
So offensive by Obama to talk down
to the voters as idiots.
Enjoy your fake presidency with ur
fake birth certificate, I do not think
Obama will get a 2nd term. He will
fade off into the night after losing
to lick his wounds in the United
Nations Security Council. That will
be his next appointment, mark
my words No birth certificate
