You just can't keep printing and spending money, [and getting kick-backs that will come out later this year] Romney would not be my first choice, But I would choose my dog over who is in the White House now.

"You just can't keep printing and spending money,"

How true, how true. You sound like a true deficit hawk,
against spending more money than you have coming in.
Wise policy. But tell me, where were you a few years ago when George W. Bush was doing just that and running up $6.5 trillion in federal deficits, a lot of it borrowed from the Chinese?

Where was the outrage then? And why were all these RW deficit hawks so silent when Bush was doing it? Where were these same RW deficit hawks during the last three Republican administrations which ran up $10.5 trillion in federal deficits? When Reagan tripled the deficit, where were the RW deficit hawks? When George H.W.Bush added $2 trillion to the deficit, where were they?
Out of the country? Hiding under their beds?

Dick Cheney said that Reagan "proved" that deficits don't matter.

Well maybe they do, but only when there is a Democrat in the White House. Hmmmmmmmm......?

By the way, did they poll all five residents of Acme?

It's too bad that the Pelosi/Reid 2007-2008 democrat-controlled congress overrode Bush's budgets to loot the treasury for $3 trillion and triple the deficit (from $161b to $455b). Of course Obama's increased that deficit TENFOLD. But's that's just fine with you. LOL!
And "Bush's recession"?! LOL! It was the democRATS' recession.

Oh Really!! How come you lie so much???
the deficit for the 1st Year Clinton took office was:
1992 438.504 Billion Deficit

Then following that we have the following:
1993 374.997 Billion Deficit
1994 290.576 Billion Deficit
1995 227.96 Billion Deficit
1996 145.125 Billion Deficit
1997 29.04 Billion Deficit
1998 89.96 Billion Surplus
1999 159.512 Billion Surplus
2000 290.772 Billion Surplus
2001 152.76 Billion Surplus

Then we get to the HEART of the Bush years

2002 186.204 Billion Deficit
2003 430.1 Billion Deficit
2004 462.56 Billion Deficit
2005 347.71 Billion Deficit
2006 260.4 Billion Deficit
2007 165.24 Billion Deficit
2008 455 Billion Deficit

And now we get to see what Obama has accomplished
2009 1416 Billion Deficit
2010 1294 Billion Deficit
2011 1650 Billion Deficit
