Clintons presidency featured the first budgets that were balanced since LBJ. He left W. a budgetary surplus which W had to give away, if he had applied the surplus against the debt, we wouldn't be having this discussion.<quoted text>Simple math got you confused?
Obama added over $5 trillion to the debt in just 4 YEARS! And it is STILL climbing!!!!!!
W added to the debt $3.3 trillion in 8 years. Likely will be half of Odumbo's debt added.
Clinton credited with highest tax revenue and thus lower debt but not a zero debt or "surplus" because we still had debt. So Odumbo beat him too!
Bush Sr.$1 trillion in debt.
Reagan $1.4 trillion in debt.
Jimmy Carter $253 billion in debt.
Ford $181 billion in debt.
Nixon $70 billion in debt.
Johnson $35 billion in debt.
Kennedy $11 billion in debt.
Eisenhower $16 billion in debt.
Truman $3 billion
FDR $196 billion in debt over 3 terms and WWII.
Hoover $5 billion in debt.
Coolidge $6 billion surplus and NO DEBT.
Harding $2 billion surplus no debt
Wilson $21 billion in debt due to WW I
all previous to this were no debt presidents.
Do I need to do the math, simpleton? Odumbo has ammassed more debt than ALL presidents combined before him!!!
Bush left trillions in war debt 'off the books' which is a fraud no matter how you look at it.
Last GOP balanced budget Ike...a moderate Republican
Carter hands Reagan $250 billion in additional debt over 4 years. Reagan adds $1.4 Trillion thus Reagan accumulated debt at a rate that was 3x Carters. The increase in the rate of accumulated debt from the Clinton to the W. is beyond calculation
Unless you are so biased that your blind or a pathological liar, you'll have no trouble concluding that from 1960 on the Democrats have been by far more debt free and responsible with budgets that the GOP has
