and the war costs were off the budget,<quoted text>
Bush's deficit for his last year in office was approximately 400 billion.
"White House director of new media Macon Phillips in a February 23, 2009 blog post,”the President today promised that by the end of his first term, he will cut in half the massive federal deficit we’ve inherited. And we’ll do it in a new way: honestly and candidly.”
Obama's deficit for the current years is approximately 1,330 billion.
Unemployment has been above 8% during Obama's entire 3.5 year tenure.
Obama's leadership just isn't reducing the deficit or unemployment.
It's impossible for Obama to run on his own record but saying 'it's Bush's fault' four years later is embarrassing.
so denying that President Bush had a hand in the financial trouble of this country is just lunacy.
