    So Bush gets a "free ride" for 911? Wow....more spin and attempts to justify.....What about all the debt from Iraq that Bush just put on a credit card?

    I've been here all along, complaining.

    still wondering what happened to all the code pink types that abandoned the cause though.

    They would...its simple. Boehner needs to put the bill to and up/down vote and quit playing games. Why won't Boehner bring the bill to a vote?

    How much interest do we pay each year from the TAD put on by Bush??
    That TAD never goes away. The interest payment to support it never goes ahead.

    Code pink is just a small radical group...hardly indicative of any meaningful group. Although....you may be the minority ARC.....most of the teabaggers/Republicans didn't say a word during Bush's spending sprees...but now all of a sudden its OUTRAGEOUS!!!!!!!

    And you made excuses for it Con, I have the posts. The fact is you are a hypocrite and you know it. Your posts betray you each and every time.

    That's a very good question Lord of Planar. I guess it is easier to blame a president for all using dates of office than to really dig a little further and see what party was in power in Congress at the same time. After all that does play a huge role in what gets funded and by how much.

    Take for instance when Bush was in office his second term, there were a lot of compromises in funding Democrat special interests just to get the military funded properly when the people voted in a Democrat Congress the latter part of his second term.
    And then there is Clinton's two terms where he had a Democrat Congress at first and freely passed legislation that would turn out to add a huge burden of debt a decade later. But if it were not for the Republicans voted in later on to take control of the purse strings, Clinton never would have had what is called a "balanced budget" during his time as president.
    Then I think of Reagan and how he has been bastardized for so many things yet he too was dealt a Democrat majority in Congress. Some of the things he compromised on were a direct result of wanting to pass more important legislation pending at the time. Just recently it was brought to my attention that the S.S. Disability requirements were loosened under his leadership yet it was a Democrat Congress that sought to have them loosened and when you are playing the game, "Let's make a deal" to get other more important pieces of legislation passed that were crucial at that time, you do what you have to do.

    So in a round about way, it's the people's fault for voting in what amounts to gridlock and forcing the compromises that leads to more debt. If they see the debt as a real issue, then they need to send representatives to Washington that will tackle the out of control spending.

    They were out there. You just were not listening. Plus the debt crisis was no where near as bad then but that's on Obama. Like everything he touches, he made the debt worse. Lots worse.

    thank you for proving my point. Anyone can google a photo op....even you....LOL

    The bottom line is...your adoration and infatuation with your hero severely clouds your credibility because you cannot fathom admitting that the same created a huge mess and is in large part responsible for a large chunk of the deficit. In your mind, he is simply an economic genius who led the US to economic Utopia.
