    How you coming on providing that quote where I said Bush was an economic genius? So the debt when Bush took office was under 5 trillion? Really? Hmmmm

    Not a personal attack at all. You are quite hypocritical (This has been proven with your posts) and your accusations of me have shown you lying. All Fact Con!

    All that faith in CBO numbers, but not the Treasury Dept. Gee, who to believe, the bank account of the United States or the CONGRESSIONAL Budget office that takes direction from the Congress? Hmmmm

    Especially after this uber conservative SCOTUS gives the thumbs up to this McCutcheon vs FEC case.

    It was 5.7 trillion.....so I should have said closer to 6 trillion than 5 trillion....nevertheless, GWB took the debt from 5.7 trillion to almost 11 trillion. (Something that you conveniently always leave out....why so Con? Don't want to accept any of the responsibility for the debt on behalf of your hero?

    Of course he doesn't. There are posts from him actually EXCUSING the debt of GWB. According to him (through his posts) if the GOP racks up debt, that is ok, but not if the Dems do it.

    I'm curious as to why people are so short sighted as to thinking the debt is only the presidents responsibility. What about congress?

    However, the House of Representatives approval rating is FIVE percent. No, this is not a typo. It really IS 5 percent.

    But numbers for everybody are dropping sharply. Best outcome we can hope for here is that a third party will rise up because of all this BS.
