    Etc.

    Just looking at the change in debt from point A to point B is a foolish oversimplification of the issue.
    I'm not blaming Obama for all the debt incurred, but he has done absolutely nothing to slow down spending in his 3 years. I'm simply stating facts.

    No kidding!

    The idea that the President is responsible for 100% of the spending under his term is silly. Much spending carries over or is due to entitlements, and the President doesn't appropriate anyway, Congress does. He can only veto.

    Got it, Bush was in office from October 1, 2008 to January 21, 2009 and added trillions to the debt in less than 4 months. Obama department heads didn't spend a dime including the stimulus, GM/Chrylser takeover, Afghanistan supplementals? That is liberal logic

    No, CONGRESS has done nothing. The only thing Obama could do is veto spending bills. And much of the spending is driven by entitlements anyway.

    Yes, he did, it was a loan that has been mostly paid back. Where is that payback showing up in the 2009 deficit?

    No, he didn't say that. He asked if Obama is responsible for spending before he became president. And your constant use of ideology is ridiculous.

    What dime did Bush spend that wasn't appropriated by the Democrat Congress?

    Probably the same place they stashed war spending.
