Actually the debt is up 60% over the $9.3 trillion Bush left.
Percentagewise that's still nothing compared to Reagan/HW Bush's quadrupling the debt and W. Bush's doubling of it.
There's still time though, its not likely but the possibility exists that he could tie W. Bush with an $18.6 trillion debt when he leaves office.
Its currently over $15 trillion.
Currently $16.7 trillion.

Free trade is a large part of why Detroit is in such bad shape.
Unions have made it possible for working folk to get fair wages, benefits and good working conditions. They speak for those that would be oppressed by their employers. Ask a police officer or fireman.
The auto industry failed because of crappy products and high production costs.

When retirement benefits are included, police and firemen are among the most overpaid members of society.

She will be there even if in a wheelchair, but she won't need a sympathy vote she will win in a landslide. Mainly because the Republicans are a party in self destruct mode.

So was the cops that was dispatched to the SF bank robbers, armed with Ak-47s &, laced head to feet in Kevlar overpaid? Or those that died on 9/11, in Boston &, every other shootout across the states, assassination attempt or, bomb plot. Many of which were spoiled &, saved thousands of lives. Life is invaluable &, they risk their on a daily. No different than the armed services in some cities across America. I will say, the war on terror was a jooks, which created Task Force departments across the country, all was /is unnecessary. Trillions of taxpayer's dollars wasted pretending to combat 1 of America's biggest money makers. millions of lives lost &, countless prison time, knowing full well, they never wanted to stop the drug epidemic. Plenty bureaucrats made a living off drugs, Reagan was 1 of them!

Obamacare is.. the boondoggle. But you don't know that do you. It's also Communistic. Get a job Petey, you can use your family name, ought to open a few doors for you???
There's a big damned difference between being adversarial and being out and out obstructive dimwit. Let's consider this quote "Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." Considering that the House Republicans have put forth this useless legislation that has zero chance of going anywhere we can come to the conclusion that they're totally off the wall crazy.
How is Obamacare Communistic moron? People still get their coverage from private sector companies and still go to private sector hospitals and see private sector health providers. It's less radical than a proposal made by Richard Nixon and almost identical to one put forth by Bob Dole. An almost identical system was signed into law by Mitt Romney as Governor of Massachusetts. Hell, the whole thing including the individual mandate, insurance exchanges and Medicaid expansion were built on a blueprint drawn by the Heritage Foundation.
As for getting a job, I've spent the better part of half a century in the work force starting with my first job in high school. I've earned my retirement. So GFY.

Horseshit.
CEO wages and benefits are a negligible fraction of the cost of production in a major corporation.
McDonald's annual revenue is $27.56 billion.
The CEO of McDonald's earns $8.75 million, or 0.03% of total revenue.
If the CEO of McDonald's received no salary, each of the company's 1,800,000 employees could receive an extra $4.86 per year, or 0.2 cents per hour.
And without management, the employees would have no jobs.
Unlike the government, businesses require competent leaders.

When he doesn't go and attend 60% of the detailed presidential daily briefings that come from the CIA and thinks he can just skim it, skim the summary paper on his iPad instead of sitting down and engaging in what -- I was in the White House with George Herbert Walker Bush. He took that brief everyday. George W. Bush took it everyday and I believe that Bill Clinton took it everyday. This president thinks he's smarter than those guys and he doesn't have to engage in the discussion. That's the most important half-hour of the day for a president who has to protect the security of the United States."
Sure Carol, and when Bush got his PDB that said a group of Al Qaeda operatives currently in the US was planning an attack what did he do? Answer: NOTHING! And over 3000 died. John Sununu is a bufoon.

Given as you are a Ron Paul fan, I wont point out how retarded the above post was. I WILL however, point out how erroneous it was (with citation).
As I said before, the worst shellacking in history (when taking into consideration all levels of government)......:-)
United States elections, 2010
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The 2010 United States elections were held on Tuesday, November 2, 2010.
Approximately 82.5 million people voted.[2]
The Democratic Party suffered massive defeats in many national and state level elections, with many seats switching to Republican Party control. The Republican Party gained 63 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives, recapturing the majority, and making it the largest seat change since 1948 and the largest for any midterm election since the 1938 midterm elections.
The Republicans gained six seats in the U.S. Senate, expanding its minority, and also gained 680 seats in state legislative races,[3][4][5] to break the previous majority record of 628 set by Democrats in the post-Watergate elections of 1974.[5]
Read it & weep, wimpy dem phags (cause history is going to repeat itself)....
Both houses:

United States elections, 1994
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The 1994 elections in the United States were held on November 8, 1994. This was the year known as the Republican Revolution, in which members of the Republican Party stormed back to majorities in the House and Senate. Republicans were able to gain eight Senate seats, fifty-four House seats, and ten governorships.

United States elections, 2006
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The 2006 United States midterm elections were held on Tuesday, November 7, 2006. All United States House of Representatives seats and one third of the United States Senate seats were contested in this election, as well as 36 state governorships, many state legislatures, four territorial legislatures and many state and local races. The election resulted in a sweeping victory for the Democratic Party which captured the House of Representatives, the Senate, and a majority of governorships and state legislatures from the Republican Party.

Do you not understand why those victories were so much greater than the 2010 GOP win? How much legislation has the GOP House been able to advance through both the Senate and the WH?

I won't let a lyin' sack like you whine about Democratic spending while ignoring Republican spending.

What don't you get?

Deficit spending is deficit spending it doesn't matter which party is doing it because they both do it equally.
