I'm surprised that you're still using these false starting dates to determine which president is responsible for what deficits but maybe you're not keeping up with your sides misinformation techniques as well as you should. I'll lay it out for you more precisely so you can see how I picked up your misinformation so easily (as well as to explain to others who may be seeing this exchange for the first time). Fiscal years run from Oct. 1 to Sep. 30 so, e.g., FY 2015 (which were in now) began on Oct. 1, 2014. Jan. 20 is not the start of any fiscal year and never has been. So by, e.g., by using the Treasury Debt-to-the-penny tables with that as the date for the debt amount is wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. GWBush's last FY ended on Sep. 30, 2009 so the debt on that date belongs to him not to President Obama. So, again, I'm not calling you a liar but certainly are passing along well-established rightwing lies about this subject (and others, no doubt). I'd say you're more of a dupe of the rightwing pukefunnel of lies that you feed on constantly. You can keep throwing up your strawman evasions for as long as you draw breath. I will come right back and call you on them every time. I actually enjoy slamming this falsehood down so I can keep doing it as long as you keep pushing it.

    Take a civics class and get back to me, learn what a continuing resolution is, learn what Bush actually spent vs. what the media tells you he spent but more importantly stop making a fool of yourself.

    I gave you the information, the debt on January 21, 2009 was 10.6 trillion and January 21, 2009 is after the end of the fiscal year 2008. That is what Obama inherited, in addition Obama signed the fiscal year 2009 budget which of course you ignored and started spending when he took office. The continuing resolutions expired in March 2009 and those resolutions were based upon 2008 numbers. The Bush budget proposed less than a 500 billion dollar deficit so tell me again how Bush with continuing resolutions, no budget, and being in office only 4 months of fiscal year 2009 created a 1.7 trillion dollar debt?

    Since you can't use anything but tainted "data" you're now reduced to just rightwing cant.

    Well, congratulations. You just explained why your data is tainted much more succinctly than I did. But I would point out that Jan 21, 2009, was also AFTER the BEGINNING of FY2009 which was Oct. 1, 2008. I don't know when I've enjoyed something more than smacking you down on this and you just keep coming back for more.

    Tainted data to you is Treasury Data, the debt when fiscal year began was 10.1 trillion and when Obama took office it was 10.6 trillion. I don't see the 1.7 trillion you want to blame Bush for but then again I see a leftwing hack who hasn't a clue about civics, continuing resolutions, or even how to research data so you buy headlines and believe them but only if from the left.

    You will note this is Treasury Data so I can understand why you don't get it probably like you don't get your own bank account data.

    You don't pay attention, I have always claimed that Obama inherited a 10.6 trillion dollar debt which was 5.7 trillion when Bush took office so he added 4.9 trillion in 8 years. Obama has added 7.6 trillion in less than 7. You are the one who claimed that Republican Presidents had higher debt than Democrats and that simply is a lie. You claimed Bush debt was 6.1 trillion. Do you ever admit that you are wrong?

    It's quite simple that the national debt has been a bi-partisan effort. Reagan tripled it, the first Bush added just shy of two trillion to it, the second Bush doubled it. In almost all things there's little difference between these two parties.

    Which is false. It stood at $11.9T on Sep. 30, 2009 which was the end of Bush's last FY in office. I'm going to take one more stab at educating you by giving you this link to a website run by a very conservative (a frequent contributor to American Thinker) named Christopher Chantrill. Please note the amount for the FY 2009 deficit at the top of the column title "Bush Deficits" and then read his footnote below. Never mind, I'll quote what he says here (emphasis added so even you can't claim you didn't see it):
    Some people [like you, con] have emailed to insist that the FY 2009 deficit should be assigned to Obama. But conventional wisdom maintains that the deficit in the first year of a president’s first term belongs to his predecessor.
    I'm not optimistic that this will change your determination to continue to make false claims. In fact, I'm almost sure it won't. But it will show everyone following this exchange just how dishonest the "data" you keep putting up is.

    Re: Obama's approval rating grows following memorable week

    This is a good sign that the presidency will stay in the hands of the Democrats in 2016. Nevertheless, Obama has had a pretty mixed record. He's probably one of our best presidents, which says something about the low standards set by previous presidents.
    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.

    Well, sure, if we ignore the fact that Clinton had set us on a course of debt reduction with 4 straight years of surpluses just before Bush came in and he and the republicans immediately destroyed with massive tax giveaways to the rich. It also ignores the fact that although the first two years of Obama's presidency continued with trillion dollar deficits (in the midst of at least the second worst economic collapse in this country's history) deficits have dropped faster than at any time since WWII (when tax rates had the highest bracket at 90 percent). Republicans have successfully blocked almost every effort to use the tax system (as was done in the post-war period) to correct those deficits which could have put the country on long term fiscal stability. No. The two parties are not at all equal on this issue despite that simplistic urge of so many to make that claim.
