VIDEO – Josh Earnest Concedes Raw Math Shows He And Obama Are Twisting The Truth On National Debt

Well, well, well.  The Obama Administration’s institutional punching bag, Press Secretary Josh Earnest, CONCEDES that the raw math does indeed support the reality that the public debt has increased by quite a bit during the Obama years.

Check out this exchange with CBS reporter Mark Knoller at Friday’s White House Press Corps daily briefing:

The deficit has fallen by two thirds, and that’s a metric for measuring the economy, but the public debt isn’t???  Where do they get this stuff?  We’re in debt up to our eyeballs.  Sooner or later we’re going to have to pay it back and that is going to put a drain on all of our other programs considering the debt is considerably higher than any budget the government has been using.  Oh, wait, there hasn’t been a budget since Obama took office….

More information on the exchange and the Obama speech Thursday evening that prompted the questioning is available at HotAir.
