Great moments in economic ignorance

I stumbled into this video, thanks to the great guys over at Powerline ( It was shot in Palo Alto, CA last week as the President dropped into Facebook headquarters to raise money from Facebook executives. Scroll ahead to the 2:15 mark, when the interviewer asks some of the gathered folks if they understand that the government borrows $167,000,000 every HOUR. The final woman to answer the question has an amazing response that demonstrates that incredible economic ignorance that affects to many Americans. And yes, she "will" vote for Obama again.

It's also interesting that Facebook sends the cops out with this message: Let Obama people stay, but tell anyone protesting that they have to leave our private property. Makes me wonder if I really want to remain a Facebook user.

  1. There are a lot of people who drink the "kool aid" but I truly believe the tide is turning. Gotta love the couple that walked past the cop. I don't think his heart was into stopping them.
