total accumulated debt when coming into office, most filibusters in history, constant threats of government shutdown hurting the economy, 25 TEArepubs causing a downgrade in August 2011, causing borrowing rates to increase--Obama is actually protecting future Repub POTUSs from this treasonous blackmail
Debt is a longterm problem, not a shortterm problem. The shortterm problems were a result of Bush's failed conservative policies, as most economists have been at pains to show.
Meanwhile, your "solution" is more tax cuts for Paris Hilton and deregulation, right? Come up, stand up proudly from your freakish conservative agenda of failure.

The transformation miraculously occurs again!
That is quite different than arguing having less revenue does not increase debt:
"allowing people to keep more of their hard earned wages rather than have it wasted by government, is hardly a contributor to debt."
Less revenue is less revenue.....not matter how you try to propagandize it.

You want debt service by year, here you go, look up the budgets by year.
Current Report: Combined Statement of Receipts, Outlays, and Balances of the United States Government (Combined Statement): Publications & Guidance: Financial Management Service
The cost of the wars are in each yearly budget and deficit so what do any of that have to do with Obama's budgets? The Iraq War was ended by the Bush status of Forces Agreement in October 2008.
You want GDP by year,
You want the unemployment and employment numbers by year, go here
U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
Want me to post the charts for you? Hopefully someone here will actually do some research and learn something.
Debt is a long term problem that continues to grow every year and will as long as there are yearly budget deficits.
My solution is to cut the size of govt. so people like you have to go back to work and pay taxes

And that's why nobody with any education or grasp of reality takes conservatives seriously anymore, if they were ever stupid enough to do so.
NEXT TEAPARTY MEME!
Tell me which Obama should we believe
2011Raising America's debt ceiling is a sign of leadership failure
No question about it, you will never let facts get in the way of your personal opinion and love for the entitlement state.Not raising the debt ceiling would be absurd and irresponsible.
