    And rightly so. Considering that you’re attempting to compare a President, not yet in office three years, with eight years of republican incompetence. Comparing someone that came in office with a $250 billion surplus and left the next President, Obama, with a $450 Billion deficit,and a $10 Trillion debt.That’s a couple of big ass eggs lying on the White House steps for the next President to step over/around.

    Bitching about Obama not righting the course of ship USA, that took eight years of incompetence, wars, combined with ill-advised tax cuts is ludicrous. No wonder you’re running around not wanting to talk about bush, trying desperately to keep the focus on Obama and off the cause of,what forever will now will be called the GREAT BUSH RECESSION….if we luck out.

    If we don't luck out,and we let the incompetence of the republican majority in the house guide us into a full blown depression. If that happens, move over Hoover, a new republican wants your crown; his name is bush.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    You argued that the other poster was missing some names from a list of President's that decreased DEBT. Your graph does not indicate that any of the President's within that time period reduced the debt. You are confusing deficits with the debt.
    What happened donc (sounds like donkey)? Thought you were going to give me some pointers on how to read graphs.

    Except I cited the clause in the Constitution that allows for the formation of departments in the Executive Branch. Try again.

    But in reality, I do give Obama props for this. He's completely right. Congress is decimating America for partisan, political gains and its sick. They need to do their god damned job. Otherwise WE need to be finding some mother****ers who will. Now I still hate Obama since he's still perpetuating our forever war and not really working to free America from the choke hold of government. But at least he strapped on a pair and told Congress to get up off their fat, lazy, designer suit wearing asses and get to work. Bunch of privileged assholes up on that hill.
    So would a libertarian party raise the debt ceiling?

    It also doesn't show that any spending was ever cut, and viable option for reducing the positive slope.

    And I disagree with that interpretation.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
