    That means Reagan's increase in debt would be equivalent to $3,335,000,000,000. You are right. Reagan did a swell job standing behind his conservative principles after all. I stand corrected.

    It's different when Reagan, Bush and Bush do it. It's only bad when it's a Democrat in office.

Thanks for the personal attack and for those that supported that attack. Shows exactly what kind of people we deal with here daily.

    Seems we are living through the second Obama recession. Romney would have had to clean up the Obama mess. Total ignorance is indeed a trait of the left.

    Tell us exactly what Obama has done to lead us out of that recession? You bought the liberal spin, the 81-82 recession was much worse than this one but you wouldn't understand that because you are incapable of doing any research at all so you buy what you are told. Leadership was lacking in this one and the results show it.

    Project much? Debt that exceeds 100% of GDP is a disaster. Obama has almost created more debt than Reagan, Bush, and Bush combined.

    I have seen a trend from liberals for a long time, total ignorance and lack of understanding of how to do research so rather than learn how to research a liberal buys what they are told.

    CBO's job is to look at the current law and project what the law will cost. So, in 2009 the CBO sat down and said. We expect that result of the policies in place now will generate a 1.2 Trillion dollar deficit. That is the very definition of inhereted. Not that facts matter to you.

    I still don't get it. I'd be pretty ashamed if I was caught saying that Bush's recession was Clintons fault but Obama's first deficit was 100% his. Do you even care about being right? I guess that's the difference between us. I strive to be pragmatic, intellecutally honest, and follow the truth wherever it may lead. You spout whatever some tea party talk show host told you to spout.

    Froth away, just don't share your koolaide...
    How you coming on finding out what made up that 1.2 trillion dollar PROJECTED deficit the CBO claims Bush would leave Obama? Did you find out whether or not TARP was included in that projection? Was TARP a loan or an expense? What were the actual Obama expenditures in 2009 and why would those be charged to Bush. I would be very much ashamed if I spent most of my life blaming someone else for my own personal failures. Fortunately I understand leadership which apparently you don't. I would have relished the challenge of inheriting the Bush results and turning them around rather than making them worse. What a hero I would have become as I would have implemented a pro growth economic policy that created new taxpayers and would have cut the Federal budget by a minimum of 20% bringing them back to the pre recession levels. Imagine what the economy would look like today?

    Always love someone like yourself whining about personal attacks while you yourself are personally attacking someone. Just another reason why your hypocrisy knows no bounds Con.
