so you agree that Bush was a big spender who hurt the economy more than he helped?
you can try as much as you want with your right wing myths, but Bush is more responsible for the state of the economy than Obama. and it seems to me that the GOP wants to keep it that way. espousing failed policies as the only way to go is not helping the economy any more than when they were failing.
I agree that both Democrats and Republicans voted to fund both wars increasing the deficit. I agree that both Democrats and Republicans neglected to avoid the housing market crisis.
I agree that a Democrat-controlled Congress in 2007 and 2008 was just as responsible for the increased deficit until January 2011 for the increased deficit as Republicans before 2007.

The question is: Do you blame Democrats, Obama and Obamacare at all for the increased deficit?

So, has it tripled? T R I P L E D. That is what your butt buddy said.
Come on Flacktard that was the GD question.
As for questions, the surge in debt was the direct result of the BUSH recession.
When the f*ck will you losers stand up & admit it for once in your pathetic little lives.
Flack: "OMG MG OMG Obama's debt OMG OMG OMG"
PATHETIC.
DO ya think that the Bush starting with a BALANCED BUDGET and Obama starting with a trillion dollar deficit might have something to do with it.
My God, Flack, get a brain
Flack supposed to get some active brain cells from you Duh a Vey?

You know what pathetic is-that goofy looking Christmas photo op ic. Made me think about some of those kinda people all the time whining about teenagers and chit.

And judging from that goofy quarter photo booth looking poser pic--looks like Malia needs to be the one giving lessons on composure and sensibility, when taking DC holiday photo op pics.

Warrior King: The Case for Impeaching George Bush
What happens when a president violates the U.S. Constitution, resulting in the deaths of thousands? In Warrior-King, public interest lawyer John Bonifaz argues passionately that Bush did just that when he launched a first-strike invasion of Iraq without a congressional declaration of war. The framers of the Constitution, he argues, wanted to ensure that our presidents would not be like European kings of old who could decide, on their own volition, to send their subjects into battle.

So you admit that cutting taxes alone , as in the Bush tax cuts, adds to the debt.
You really need to work on your reading and comprehension of the written English language.

One more time, dufus.

Spending adds to the debt. Without spending, there is no debt.

Where is the Democrats' plan to cut spending?

The problem for liberals such as yourself is Obama has far outdone Bush in overstepping the Constitutional boundaries of Executive power and privilege.

Congress actually did give Bush permission to use military force in Iraq.

So the author of this book published misleading information.

The only reason Dems wants an increase In minimum wage is it also increases union wages the same amount across the board=more union dues collected=more money available for unions to donate to Dems and their PACs. It is a payoff to donors.

What a load. If these corporations are paying their ceos hundreds of million dollar salaries and bonuses, they can pay their employees a higher wage.

"It should go without saying that this is not an argument for Obama’s fiscal policy. The current President promised change, but he is continuing the wasteful and profligate policies of his big-spending predecessor. That is where critics should be focusing their attention."

http://www.cato.org/blog/dont-blame-obama-bus...

Published back in 2009. Sonic's source.

Obama cannot be blamed for the 2009 deficit - the content of that article. He can be blamed for the deficit following 2009, however.
