(NEW YORK POST) — Thank you David Letterman for at least asking President Obama a question that the reporters who follow our commander-in-chief around never seem to get to: What about the debt?

Letterman said he actually watched the Republican National Convention and seemed to be concerned about the debt clock that was clicking away to over $16 trillion. Obama was cool, calm and dishonest in his reply.

No, there isn’t anything to worry about “short-term” in terms of how much debt we have on our balance sheet.
