I want to tell you a secret. I have magical lint in my pocket. How I got this lint is not important. What is important is that you understand the amazing magic it contains.
I can prove that my lint is a powerful talisman.
When this lint is in my pocket I am completely immune to attacks from tigers, sharks, and space aliens. The lint provides land, sea, and air protection that is invaluable. It is also an absolute fact that I have never – not once – suffered an attack from a tiger, shark, or E.T., while I had the lint in my pocket. That is the 100 percent truth.
I understand your reticence to believe me. It is an unusual claim that is largely unverifiable. Before you laugh off my secret magic lint consider the argument valid because it is the same argument used by President Obama to justify his budgetary adventurism.
Obama and his surrogates have repeatedly conceded America is in a financial mess, but assure us it would all be much worse if Obama did not add $6 trillion in debt to buy the political version of magic lint.
The American economy has gotten worse under President Obama. Debt, spending, and taxes have increased under his watch. Unemployment has risen, and every precedent for economic recovery has been shattered by the prolonged recession that is comparable to the Japanese “lost decade.” Yet, according to Obama, it could be worse.
What is worse is that you believed him.
Which reminds me; I have some lint I would be happy to sell to you. Protecting your family from dangerous attacks is the only responsible and compassionate thing you can do. Just imagine what might happen if you failed to protect your loved ones from aliens and sharks.
