As His Imperial Majesty was standing around at the fuel pump and pondering the fact that King Narcissus’ disastrous sabotage of the U.S. economy has driven gas prices up by about a buck a gallon just over the last few months, we started pondering about damages to our economy in general and, among various kicks we’d taken, what was the worst prior punch to the gut we could think of?
Well, 9/11 came to mind. So we started Googling around to see if anybody had rung up the numbers and, near as we could tell, the most pessimistic number we could find was about $639 billion. Which is a chunk of change, that’s for damn sure (and we’re not talking about the emotional cost here, we don’t really think you can put a price on that).
It used to be a chunk of change anyway.
Then 11/4/08 came around and all that we got as a result of that date, a number that we still haven’t finished tallying up, and all of a sudden $639 billion looks like chump change.
So congrats, Hussein Obama. You’re now the most successful anti-American terrorist in our history.
We guess that you finally DO have an actual achievement to your name.
