    Again, speculation on your part but an uneducated statement as usual. The debt Bush put on the Credit card is part of the 4.9 trillion dollar debt Bush created. I find it interesting that someone who is in the fiscal disastrous state of California is concerned about the 4.9 trillion Debt Bush added but little about the 6.4 trillion debt Obama debt in 5 years.

    No they weren't. They didn't give a **** until Obama took office. GWB doubled the national debt while he was in office...the teabaggery didn't start until after he left. Other than the (R)....there was not much difference.

    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.
    Just like your obsession and BDS over a President who has been out of office for almost 5 years. Guess that is a great way to divert from the Obama failures.

    By the way that picture at DFW was in 2010

    A new meme for Republican legislative add-ons is to bring up entitlement reforms on top of everything else.
    Thi Ryan budget defeated in the last election-decided on this past May-the Repubs new RED line.
    This Economic Showdown was planned the night of the election-like the the 2011 one was planned in Nov. 2008.

    I'm concerned about it all. Unlike you...I'm concerned about the debt created under GWB and I'm concerned about the debt created under Obama. You on the other hand are only concerned about the debt under Obama...as if he is responsible for the entire 17 trillion himself...as for Bush, you done nothing but engage in calisthenics to rationalize and justify his responsibility.

    Liberal math??

    Bush 4.9 trillion in 8 years=600 billion per year
    Obama 6.4 trillion in 5 years= 1.3 trillion a year

    Obama doubles the Bush yearly debt but that isn't a problem?

    Bush left a mess with a Democrat Congress that allowed him to do it? Didn't you say that Congress and the President were responsible for the economic numbers? Guess you left that part out when Bush had a Democrat controlled Congress in 2007-2008

    There isn't a lot we can do about the debt created during the Bush term. We have three years more under Obama and increasing the debt ceiling doesn't put the focus on where it belongs, cutting spending and the deficit.

    Haw. You are really grasping for a spin straw now.

    LOL...Thank YOU once again for proving me correct, Conservative. You cannot fight the urge to try to cavort, conjole, twist, spin, rationalize, justify...practically do everything that you can possibly do to try to rehabilitate and justify your hero's failed legacy. I understand, Conservative....you can't help it.

    radical is just buzz words to poison the well so to speak. There was nothing radical about their opposition to our foreign policy.

    The tea party movement were born out of Bush's reckless spending and foreign policy. Like any political movement that gains in numbers, it becomes co-opted by others over time.
