Obama and Biden: The "Dynamic 7-11 Duo"

You may recall this hidden video recording of Joe Biden from 6 years ago. It surfaced during the 2008 presidential campaign and was one of the first instances where the media dismissed Biden's gaffe as just Joe-being-Joe. Now such gaffes and dismissals are practically a daily occurrence.


Some employees of 7-11 were offended by Biden's prejudicial remark, and rightfully so. But it seems Biden has rubbed off on Obama, as he has now been dubbed the "7-11 President."


This drubbing is because, according to the Treasury Department's summary of federal spending so far in 2012, for every $7 in taxes the Obama administration brings in, it spends $11. As Jeffrey Anderson of The Weekly Standard puts it, "Under Obama, for every $7 we’ve had, we’ve spent nearly $11 (or, to be more exact, $10.95).  That’s like a family that makes $70,000 a year — and is already knee-deep in debt — blowing nearly $110,000 a year" (or, to be exact, $109,500).


I wonder if Barack and Michelle ran their household that way in Chicago. And will they revert to that lifestyle when they return to Chicago (or Hawaii) when we oust them in 2 1/2 weeks?
