Congress has tinkered with the debt ceiling, the statutory limit on amount of money the United States government is authorized to borrow to meet its legal obligations, a grand total of 78 times since 1960 -
49 times under Republican presidents
and
29 times under Democratic presidents.
2. Debt Ceiling Under Bush
"President George W. Bush"The White House
The debt ceiling was raised on seven occasions during President George W. Bush's two terms in office, from $5.95 trillion in 2001 to nearly double that,$11.315 trillion, in 2009 - an increase of $5.365 trillion or 90 percent.
Under Bush the debt ceiling increased:
by $450 billion to $6.4 trillion in June 2002;
by $984 billion to $7.384 trillion 11 months later, in May 2003;
by $800 billion to $8.184 trillion 18 months later, in November 2004;
by $781 billion to $8.965 trillion 16 months later, in March 2006;
by $850 billion to $9.815 trillion 18 months later, in September 2007;
by $800 billion to $10.615 trillion 10 months later, in July 2008;
and by $700 billion to $11.315 trillion three months later, in October 2008.

And under the leadership of the boy president nobama when he leaves office the debt will be 20 trillion plus if the president has his way. That means under nobama's rule he will nearly double the debt in just 8 years.

Stock Market Crash of 2008
Follow the Timeline to Understand Why It Crashed
http://useconomy.about.com/od/Financial-Crisi...
2008
By the end of January, the BEA announced that GDP growth was a paltry .6% for the fourth quarter of 2007. The economy lost 17,000 jobs, the first time since 2004. The Dow shrugged off the news, and hovered between 12,000-13,000 until March. On March 17, the Federal Reserve intervened to save the failing investment bank Bear Stearns, the first casualty of the subprime mortgage crisis. The Dow dropped to an intra-day low of 11,650.44, but seemed to recover. In fact, many thought the Bear Stearns rescue would keep markets from sliding below 20% of the October high, and avoid a bear market. In fact, by May the Dow rose above 13,000 again and it seemed the worst was behind us.
However, in July 2008 the subprime mortgage crisis had spread to government sponsored agencies Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, requiring a Federal government bailout. The Treasury Department guaranteed $25 billion in their loans and bought shares of Fannie's and Freddie's stock, while the FHA to guaranteed $300 billion in new loans. The Dow closed on July 15 at 10,962.54, before bouncing back above 11,000 for the rest of the summer.
September 2008
The month started with chilling news -- On Monday, September 15, 2008, Lehman Brothers declared bankruptcy. The Dow dropped 504.48 points.
On Tuesday, the Federal Reserve announced it was bailing out insurance giant AIG with an $85 billion "loan" in return for 79.9% equity, effectively taking ownership. AIG had run out of cash in its attempt to pay off credit default swaps it had issued against mortgage-backed securities.
On Wednesday, money market funds lost $144 billion as investors panicked, and switched to ultra-safe Treasury notes. The Dow fell 449.36 points.
On Thursday, markets rose 400 points as investors learned about a new bank bailout package. On Friday, the Dow ended the week at 11,388.44 -- slightly below its Monday open of 11,416.37.
On Saturday, September 20, Hank Paulson and Ben Bernanke sent the $700 billion bailout package to Congress. The Dow bounced around 11,000 until September 29, when the Senate voted against the bailout bill. The Dow fell 777.68 points, the most in any single day in history.
October 2008
Congress finally passed the bailout bill in early October, but by now panic had set in. The Labor Department reported that the economy had lost a whopping 159,000 jobs in the prior month. On Monday, October 6, the Dow dropped 800 points, closing before 10,000 for the first time since 2004. The Federal Reserve fought the ongoing banking liquidity crisis by lending $540 billion to money market funds, coordinating a global central bank bailout, and lowering the Fed funds rate to just one percent. However, the LIBOR bank lending rate rose to its high of 3.46%.
The Dow responded by plummeting 13% throughout the month. By the end of October, the BEA released more sobering news -- the economy had contracted .3% in the third quarter. The nation was in recession.
November 2008
The Labor Department reported that the economy had lost a staggering 240,000 jobs in October. The month revealed more bad news. The AIG bailout grew to $150 billion, Treasury announced it was using part of the $700 billion bailout to buy preferred stocks in the nations' banks, and the Big 3 automakers asked for a Federal bailout, as well. By November 20, 2008, the Dow had plummeted to 7,552.29, a new low. However, the stock market crash of 2008 was not yet over(cont.)
Good grief as I posted the other day to that chancy poster Clinton was the one that deregulated the banks.. Bush warned the train wreck was coming and the dems pushed for more loans from fanny and freddie.. Try to be honest..

The GOP's Best Bet To Finally Win Over Hispanic Voters? Former President George W. Bush
http://latino.foxnews.com/latino/politics/201...
Having lost gains it had made with the country's increasingly influential Hispanic voters, the GOP is still figuring out the best way to get them back in the fold.

The party's now betting on the wisdom of former President George W. Bush.

The new GOP's new Hispanic outreach is being modeled after Bush’s 2004 “Viva Bush” presidential campaign, said the party's deputy political director.

The “Viva Bush” campaign, which covered 32 states, succeeded in getting Bush one of the largest margins – 44 percent – of Latino voter support for a Republican presidential candidate.

As you would say (any other time), "The buck stops here.", and you would apply that quote to what George Bush should have said. Didn't it all happen under his watch? Yep. He had almost EIGHT YEARS to deal with the problem before it exploded in his face. Instead he got us into two unfunded wars.

"Mission Accomplished!" Like h*ell, it was.

You try to be honest.

Both of those actions were funded and passed by congress.. It was accomplished and saddam was removed from power and later hanged by the new iraq's government.. Why don't you want to admit Bush entered office we were already into a recession clinton started?? Yea his deregulating the banks got the economy moving again and everyone warned about the sub-prime loans was going to explode.. Would you have rather it waited for a year and blew up on obama's watch?? Personally I don't think the banks should have been bailed out.. But I did benefit since I bought a HUD home for half the market value.. In 4 months I will be allowed to bid on another since my 2 years will be up..:-)

I believe the assassination of John Kennedy and the attempted murder of Ronald Reagan was to stifle them before they let Americans know what the once Democrat Party is planning. The Democrat Party now known as Liberals could be both Dems. and GOP members.

It started with Kennedy trying to warn us about the Federal Reserve soon to be One World Banking System which would control everyone's finances to the point of enslavement.

Ronald Reagan was trying to warn the Americans about the farmers being paid off not to grow, the entitlements to control people with sources of food and shelter. The healthcare system another way to bankrupt America. He spoke extensively about how much the gov. was spending to the ratio of what we were receiving in revenues.

It all comes back full circle to the money.

The corrupted politicians keep getting richer and the Americans keep getting the shaft, the working Americans.

We are headed toward a two class nation, the elitist (crooked and rich) and the poor (subservient and broke).

Its happening right before our very eyes.
I will do victory donuts on US 41when Obama is assassinated. It's just a matter of time before Israeli operatives take him out. It could also be Russian operatives. It could also be a war veteran pissed off about veterans being arrested at memorials on Obama's orders. IT COULD ALSO BE ANY ONE OF 250,000,000 AMERICANS PISSED OFF ABOUT OBAMA CARE. OBAMA HAS SEALED HIS FATE!!!!!!

That's all good but it won't fix Americas problems. Obama is just a puppet on a string. Get rid of him and the NWO will install a new puppet in his place.
The only thing that could fix America is if Americans would stand up against all tyranny like we did a couple of hundred years ago.
I don't see that happening though because we have grown weak and the vast majority of us have learned to accept what we're handed today.

It's YOU and your friends here post the lies, vulgar insults, and nonstop, unprovoked attacks. You in fact bait and gossip about people just to get attention like so many of you mindless right-wingers do.

You're so desperate to be noticed you have to beg for attention and on Topix no less. Pathetic.

Funny. I don't recall the WHO telling me who to vote for, and Obama hasn't tried to do anything different than what he ran on.

That was a long ramble singing the same songs that have always been sung from the right and everyone of your points are misguided.
If you want to single out those who take advantage of welfare then why stop there ?????? Why not demand that a president who sent 1000's to die over a lie as well as his administration making billions from it (blood money). The Bush, Cheney, Rumsfield connection and not only that run up trillion$ in debt but not a damn thing gained. That lil effort right there could have paid all those welfare moochers for the next 20 yrs. Then we have the common criminals sucking the life out of law order's budget all at tax payers expense which also makes those welfare moochers look street beggers. AND YOU KNOW WHAT, they are small change compared to that lot above. Socialism is not even close in a capitalist country yet you lot cling to that word like it gives you lifeblood. It's as fake as your argument. So why does the social welfare take the brunt of all that is wrong with America.
When you have 80% of American's only having 7% stake in all the countries wealth that is so far removed from socialism its laughable. You have been brain washed into believing total myths that are factually UNTRUE!
http://theunderstatement.com/post/3999331289/...
What I said is the truth and history has confirmed it time and time again. You want to take on the wealthy? So did the communists in Russia and where did that get them? More than a century of suffering only to discover that communism has it's own class structure where most of the people are starving while a lucky few are getting fat.

How about Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge of Cambodia? They didn't like the way free markets worked either. Why should those who worked hard and studied get ahead? Kill all the educated wealthy people and make everyone farm for a living. Everyone but Pol Pot of course.

This is the US of A where the minority gets a voice and it had better be listened to and redressed because in a revolution between the takers and the makers, the takers don't stand a chance. Even if they outnumber makers two to one, the takers will lose. The rich? Well, are they makers or are they takers? I'm sure there are a few takers amongst the wealthy but they are outnumbered by makers and those wealthy makers will finance and support an army of middle class makers to slaughter the takers faster than a Mexican can slip across the U.S. Mexican border.

It's best for the takers to crawl back into their barrio and be happy with what we provide already and quit demanding more.
