    Sorry, this is simply untrue. Red posted the numbers, so let's agree that hundreds of billions do not equal Trillions! No sir, Pelosi, Reid, and the Obama pen are responsible for stepping on the gas when it comes to reckless spending.

    Well, you can dismiss them all you want, but reality is what most people see, and Trillions do not equal Billions in any stretch of the imagination.

    My numbers do not disagree with what he said. In point of fact, most of the debt was created under republican presidents. That is a factual statement. Debt has, historically, increased much faster under republican presidents. Whether Obama changes that remains to be seen, though at this point it looks quite possible.

    As the chart I posted shows, it was the repubs who accumulated most of the national debt. So let's agree that the repubs are responsible for most our debt.

    Every fycking year that man was in office our national debt went up, and our deficit NEVER hit zero, much less a surplus. So where is this ****ing budget surplus you keep speaking of???????

    And you failed to give us a source for your chart which only leads me to believe that they are not facts, but more revision of actual numbers.
