    Get your facts straight, there are two factors in debt - spending and revenue. Revenue was lost because of the Great Bush Recession.

    The economy is too complex to tag Bush as the sole reason for the recession. We had a Dem congress and a Republican president. The Democrat congress increased spending and Bush approved of it. This isn't a "Republicans did it!!1one!!11!!" Both parties are at fault, and the Democrats are continuing on with their failed policies and high spending.

    Common sense certainly doesn't prevent you from repeating that mistake; only the 22nd Amendment saves you from yourself.
    you mean he cannot run again? Thought he was still in office now. Obama who many believe is the smartest man ever to hold the office couldn't even clean up the mess that Bush created in 2011. That damn Bush!!

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011, 24+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.67. First President in U.S. History to have our credit downgraded on his watch!

    And what Obama inherited: economy shedding 700,000+ jobs per month, GDP shrinking at 6+% per year, financial institutions teetering on the edge of collapse, trillion+ deficit.... Nice improvement.
    You are so right, it was really much better paying 17.5% and higher for home mortgages, having a 20% misery index, and 10.8% unemployment in the 80's than having record low interest rates, 7.6% unemployment, and almost zero inflation in 2009. We were much worse off today than then.

    I'm sure when Michele Bachmann, Rick Parry, or whoever has an R by their name all the problems of the past will disappear and again we will be paving our streets with bricks of gold

    You mean those 25 million unemployed and under employed Americans aren't paying much in taxes?

    I don't believe Al Gore would have done such a stupid thing as to attack a county that didn't attack us. Bush should have attacked Mexico as the logistics would have been much better.

    That is over a year from now, what I am trying to figure out is how to get Bush out of the WH now
