Do the research as to how much the defecit went up under Obama. They raised the debt ceiling, only because in the last 2-3 years, the debt increased 5 fold.

And if Obama quickly pulled out of Iraq/afganistan as he PROMISED to in his campaign, how much debt from the war would there be...?
most definately not 15 trillion.

Whilst that is all true (except the "five fold" part... that seems a bit higher then what I have seen, could be mistaken though), please bare in mind that the deficit most likely would have increased no matter who was in charge due to increased unemployment bringing about not only dramatically reduced taxation revenue, but also more unemployment benefits/ welfare being paid out. Also, whilst the stimulus has certainly been expensive, and in my opinion has not delivered "bang for buck" so to speak, I have read economists say that without it, we would be dealing with a great depression.
Also, the now-infamous "Bush Tax Cuts" have caused an enormous revenue shortfall because Mr.Bush did not back them up with spending cuts. If Obama had been able to repeal the tax cuts for the richest Americans, as he wanted to, I believe it would have generated several billion dollars a year.
However, I think all rational people can agree that, despite whether or not we support the tax cuts, wars etc etc that have lead to the debt , these two presidents have not exactly been the most austere! I honestly think America needs a Gary Johnson presidency right now. I Can't see the G.O.P rank-and-file supporting someone as socially progressive as him though...

Yeah, awesome success. The man responsible for killing the US economy, thousands of military lives and setting the military back 10 years in the hunt for Bin Laden while we took care of his personal grudges first. That's an autograph I want...the worst leader/US president in history.


You're on here too? Of course you'd only post something this stupid on one of my threads.
Keep your **** liberal comments to yourself.


Why don't you practice what you preach with your B.S. fakes!
