I do not know what Barack Obama does know, I do know that Obama does not know math, from Smitty, Other McCain:

[Obama] “We got back every dime we used to rescue the financial system. . .”


[Congressional Budget Office] “The cost to the federal government of the TARP’s transactions (also referred to as the subsidy cost), including grants for mortgage programs that have not yet been made, will amount to $24 billion,”

Smitty suggested that maybe we did not use any dimes to fund the bailout. I might suggest that Obama used the Biden style we, to only mean himself and Mrs. Obama. On behalf of the poor taxpayers I say: Who we Paleface?
