Several weeks ago President Trump was being interviewed by a TV news person. In a series of questions about Trump’s proposal for tax cuts, the interviewer ended up asking, “… but isn’t this going to increase the deficit?” Deficit? Deficit. Deficit. I remember that word. Seems like forever since I last heard it. Hmmm… It was actually only about 8 years ago.
Presidential candidate Barack Obama was implying that George W. Bush was treasonous for allowing the yearly deficits to push the national debt to record levels. Where has that word been for the last 8 years. It must have fallen out of the ‘Official Professional Journalists Lexicon.’ That’s the only thing I can think of. And a true shame it was that the word was unavailable just when it was most needed. After that ‘traitor’ George W. Bush added $4.9 trillion to the national debt the journalists were then unable to provide any warning to the American people that Barak Obama was in the process of adding $9 trillion to the national debt.
I think I’m going to try to recollect any other words that have been lost for the last 8 years. Yeah, yeah, that’s the ticket.
