You need to expand your bar graph one more space to the right, except the deficit bar would require you to scroll down the computer screen for a few minutes thanks to our current president after only ONE YEAR in office, sir.I absoultely agree with you on Bush, but I wonder when the Democrats are going to stop blaming Bush when they are doing the EXACT SAME THINGS spending-wise only on a exponentially larger scale.It kind of mutes the validity of your argument to be blaming Bush for something you all are doing in the extreme.
I would dispute that Bush and Obama are doing the "EXACT SAME THINGS" as you claim. Bush's spending explosion was accompanied by tax cuts for the wealthy and for large corporations, plus funding two wars off the books.Obama will be allowing the Bush cuts to expire, is winding down the Iraq War, and does have some targeted spending cuts. Unfortunately, Obama is now saddled with even more of Bush's debt, as he has ended the dishonest accounting tactics employed by Bush that kept the wars off the books. So, in truth, Bush is still dragging down Obama. Just as he has been for the last year.I guarantee when Obama leaves office in Jan 2017, his addition to the graph will be much lower than Bush's.
God help us all if it is 2017 when Obama leaves office, but I will remind you of this and present you with all of the contradictory statistics to prove you are very wrong at that time if he is to remain.He sure as hell will have us four times as much in debt than Bush ever did when he leaves office at the likely time in early 2013.
...but I wonder when the Democrats are going to stop blaming Bush when they are doing the EXACT SAME THINGS spending-wise only on a exponentially larger scale.I suppose when conservative morons like Palin and her ilk and get rid of their selective amnesia about what thirty years of their disastrous stewardship of the economy have done to this nation. But I digress... Dave called it, deficits are fine as long as they are targeted and bolster the health of the nation. Bush's deficit spending doesn't even come close to qualifying. Obama's...we'll see.Dave... Thanks for the link and for reprinting the graph.
