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?

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.

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.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.
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.
