    That is because of an 82 billion credit in Commerce which we know didn't happen. How do you explain an entire Dept having a credit?

    It seems the President's only suggestion to solve the debt problem so far is that 'the rich' should pay more. He does not appear to be encumbered by imagination.
    And my understanding is that the Republican-led House was not interested in compromising with Obama or the Democrats on raising the debt ceiling. It was, their way or the highway, if Obama wanted that ceiling to be raised and they stuck to their guns until they got 98% of what they wanted. They basically held the nation hostage with the debt ceiling to get what they wanted and this was at least part of the reason for the downgrade as the S&P even cited political brinkmanship in Washington as a hindrance for fixing the problem.

    I'm posting numbers from verifiable sites. I have no idea what numbers you're making up. Spending went down in 2010.

    Let's see if we can get Bush out of the WH. Obama cannot be strapped with these results

    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!

    Bush, 86% increase in unemployment; Obama, 17% increase ... Conservatives prefer Bush. Go figure?
    Yeah, that's a real head scratcher there.

    Bush would have been such a better president had he only been able to maintain unemployment levels above 9%.

    Thank God for No-Drama Obama. With him, at least we know things will be consistently awful.

    Consistency is the key to great leadership.

    Obama '12

    Hey, good news for ya, Conservative ...

    Obama's JAR is back down to 39% on Gallup. So the good news is you get to boast again about Obama's JAR being in the 30's; but the bad news is that doesn't erase the lie you told when you said his JAR was 39% when it was really 41%.

    Actually it is great news for both of us now since we are part of a declining number of supporters. Pretty soon it will be you, Adam, Pb, and a few others and we can get his ear very well and get everything we want implemented.

    Does Obama have an idea on how to rectify the debt problem?

    He did present a budget, I know that, but it was rejected by everyone else by 97-0. Since then I've only heard him say that others should come up with a compromise of some sort.

    And Conservative is happier with Bush's results than with Obama's.
    Rightwingers also have no problem with the first $10T in debt piled up, for the most part, under repub presidents.
