Barack Obama, self-described sports aficionado, friend of our foes, and narcissist of the year, found another golden opportunity to project himself on the world stage. He also probably noticed that his face has not yet graced the cover of Sports Illustrated. In order to correct that dreadful oversight, Obama has decided to inject himself into America's national pastime tonight.

The only modern era President NOT to have  thrown out a ceremonial first pitch at regular season MLB game has saved himself for the BIG stage at the All Star Game. Obama's Treasury Department announced yesterday that the government's annual deficit has passed $1.1 Trillion. The fiscal year will end with the deficit  north of $1.84 Trillion on September 30 according to Treasury projections.

The FOX network will employ 21 HD cameras and 80 field and crowd microphones, as well as approximately 20 microphones for players, coaches and umpires to wear. And during the FOX broadcast, the on-air team will interact with viewers via Twitter. FOX's personalities will tweet at www.twitter.com/MLBonFOX, and Rosenthal will respond to viewer tweets as well.

During the afternoon, MLB.com and FOXSports.com will even bring batting practice to fans. Starting at 4:30 p.m., fans can watch the MLB All-Star Batting Practice Show at those two Web sites, allowing fans who aren't at the ballpark to get a view of some things they don't normally see even during a game broadcast.

Last year's number was the all-time leader at the time, at $454.8 billion -- an "INHERITED" figure that now seems rather puny in comparison.

The soaring deficit is making Chinese and other foreign buyers of U.S. debt nervous, which could make them reluctant lenders down the road. It could also force the Treasury Department to pay higher interest rates to make U.S. debt attractive longer-term.

"These are mind-boggling numbers," said Sung Won Sohn, an economist at the Smith School of Business at California State University.

Barack Obama, is already the biggest spender we've ever had in the White House. The previous champ was FDR who put the United States on the path to socialism.
