When patriotic Americans came out in record numbers to landslide President Obama back into the White House they did so with the sole purpose of giving him a mandate to continue his policies and agenda that has brought this nation out of the Bush recession/depression… I am still celebrating Election Night as the Inauguration approaches; and there will be a big party at my house, just like there was in 2008.

Osama bin Laden is DEAD and GM is alive… and the republican Party has imploded… it couldn’t get any better, LOL!

Patty has a good point. Now that we have Obama, we really don't need elections anymore. When he is tired of being president, we trust him to pick the next one. Things are going to be soooo great. Obama’s first 4 years didn’t really count, as Patty mentioned, he had to spend all his time finding and killing Osama. This term he is going to fix the economy. As Patty brings up often, even a complete idiot can make changes in 8 years. He’s still got lots of time though, so right after the parties, a couple vacations and some campaigning, he’s going to set things right. We can already see how he’s saved the middle class.

That's nothing. Obama has done twice as much in only 4 years. When it comes to spending, Obama is the King.

Look what Barney Frank and Chris Dodd did to us in the last two years of bush. The Stupids just can't get it through their stupid heads that barney and Dood caused the mortgage crisis. they are WAYYYYY to stupid to get it. They don't know about Dodd's filibuster or nothing. Just a horde of stupid, ignorant god-damned a-holes with big god-damned mouths to boot. The stupids have won. Prepare for more stupidity like this idiot liar like Susan Rice.

There are not December 2012 numbers, but they DO make a valid point:

"Obama’s and Bush’s effects on the deficit in one graph”

By Ezra Klein
From the New York Times

Please think, for just one moment, about who has done more harm to the United States of America in the past 10 years, according to people who know something about the matter:

BUSH CONTRIBUTION TO DEFICIT:$5.07 TRILLION
OBAMA CONTRIBUTION TO DEFICIT $1.44 TRILLION

Bush New Costs 2002-2009

Iraq, Afghanistan Wars $1, 469 billion
Bush tax cuts 1, 812 billion
Non-defense discretionary spending 608 billion
TARP and other bailouts 224 billion
Medicare drug benefit 180 billion
2008 stimulus & other changes 773 billion

BUSH - TOTAL COST NEW POLICIES $5.07 TRILLION

Obama New Costs 2009-2017
(Includes projections)

Stimulus spending $ 711 billion
Non-defense discretionary spending 278 billion
Stimulus tax cut 425 billion
Health reform & entitlement changes 152 billion

OBAMA – TOTAL COST NEW POLICIES $1.44 TRILLION

Frank and Dodd caused nothing. It was ppl. trying to stay on the top of being an upper classman. They moved just a little bit too soon before the "illuminati" pulled the plug. All of the crash can be attributed to thinking we have arrived mentality and in need of no one or anything. The "illuminati" cancelled the "no worries" crowd to show who is still in control.

Bush left office....debt 10 trillion
now 16 trillion

16-10=6 trillion since obama took office, jughead.

The last three budgets fall squarely under Obama. And, during that time, the federal government ran up deficits of $1.3 trillion in 2010,$1.3 trillion in 2011, and about $1.2 trillion in the fiscal year that ends Sept. 30 — for a total of nearly $5.2 trillion in deficit spending.

Now, affixing responsibility (i.e., blame) for mega-deficits and the ballooning federal debt is filled with ideological landmines. Obama doesn’t take responsibility for war spending, for example, even though he continued the spending and, in fact, increased U.S. troop levels in Afghanistan. He also doesn’t want to take the blame for the expense of creating the Medicare prescription drug program — although his federal health care law increased funding for it.(The law will gradually close the notorious doughnut hole that caused some seniors to pay nearly $2,000 in prescription drug costs because of a gap in coverage.)

Obama significantly increased troop levels in Afghanistan in both years. CBO says budget authority for the Afghanistan war jumped from $38 billion in 2009 to $87 billion in 2010 and $98 billion in 2011. Obama requested $115 billion for both wars in 2012. The cost from 2010 to 2012 is more than $400 billion, excluding interest.
