I didn't watch the 60 Minutes interview with Barack Obama last night, as I had an interest in keeping my Sunday dinner down. By all accounts, it was a bizarro report from Candyland - ignorance as the basis of policy, with a side dish of intellectual incoherence. In other words, a typical Obama interview.
Q: What do you get when you cross a 60 Minutes reporter with a mime?
A: Steve Kroft, who somehow managed to do an entire interview with the President without speaking — or at least, without speaking about Solyndra, Congressional calls for Attorney General Holder’s impeachment, the MF Global scandal (and in particular, the role played by top Obama fundraiser Jon Corzine), or Elena Kagan’s involvement in the legislative guidance of ObamaCare before her appointment to SCOTUS.
And without a sneer to be seen anywhere in the room.
how much money did this nation lose?
The debt has increased by $48,994.13 a second since Barack Obama became president.
So what did 60 minutes cost you last night, calculating the above number by each tick of CBS's clock? By my math, $176,378,868.00-.
Maybe CBS ought to find some different imagery for their flagship "news" show, at least on evenings where they are interviewing a man who drives us closer and closer to ruin with every tick, every tock, every passing second...
