    Yep another partisan source - noting that most of the spending in 2009 was just attributed to Bush - at least there's a complete lack of transparency as to how those debt numbers were attributed. Just a reminder of how the debt in the US is expected to grow:

    Sorry, post something credible - not to mention that this reeks of an attempt to deflect responsibility and justify a mountain of deficit spending coming up. But even if we do take your attempted point that Bush is to blame, then you can also argue that the Republicans are now attempting to fix the mess by reducing the growth in spending.

    LOL. You regularly post from the Washington Examiner, a vanity newspaper that's further to the right than Mussolini and criticize other sources?

    And in the same post, again cite the discredited (and anti-gay) Heritage Foundation?

    You're too funny. icon_lol.gif

    Yes. CBPP is a well-respected think tank that is actually nonpartisan. Heritage is a front for Christian fundamentalists who would stone you if they could get away with it.

    Au contraire...

    I know who runs CBPP but do you know who runs Heritage:

    Paul Wyreich "Weyrich positioned himself as a defender of traditionalist sociopolitical values of states' rights, dominionism, traditional marriage, heterocentrism, ethnic nationalism, anti-communism and class hierarchy."

    He also believes that gays are obsessed with sex in a way straights are not.

    Other quotes from this delightful gent:

    On voter suppression: "I don't want everybody to vote. Elections are not won by a majority of the people. They never have been from the beginning of our country and they are not now. As a matter of fact, our leverage in the elections quite candidly goes up as the voting populace goes down."

    On Jews: "Christ was crucified by the Jews.... He was not what the Jews had expected so they considered Him a threat. Thus He was put to death."

    On, well, the entire Constitution: "The real enemy is the secular humanist mindset which seeks to destroy everything that is good in this society."

    These are the beliefs of Heritage and this is who you're supporting when you quote from them. icon_rolleyes.gif

    $6.1 trillion under Bush? Nope.


    From the Treasury Dept:

    Debt on Bush's first day in office: $5.7 trillion

    Debt on Bush's first day in office: $10.6 trillion

    Debt added during Bush years: $4.9 trillion


    Debt on Obama's first day in office: $10.6 trillion

    Debt on Obama's first day in office: $14.3 trillion

    Debt added during Obama's first 29 months: $3.7 trillion

    Debt added - Obama's first day in office to end of current fiscal year: $4+ trillion


    Incorrect, but thanks for spamming this thread as well with your lies and half-truths. icon_rolleyes.gif
