Furst Evar

This whole thing where people are pretending they just now discovered that presidents use teleprompters and the US budget runs into the trillions of dollars is getting old.

Of course Bush’s final budget was over $3 trillion without including the costs of Afghanistan & Iraq but hey, yknow, brown president. S’different.

(that video was the first I could come up with in the 15 seconds i was willing to spend searching, but after Obama got elected and announced his plans for a stimulus I remember getting bombarded with emails and seeing clips of senators on cspan pointing at charts about “a trillion dollars is a stack of dollar bills high enough to build 27 papier-mache mount rushmores with nothing but reagan faces” or wtfever)
