    The Bush administration has spent heavily on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and faces a large budget shortfall in tax revenue in part because of Bush's tax cuts and a souring economy.

    A Democratic point man on the budget, Sen. Kent Conrad of North Dakota, blasted the administration for its "reckless fiscal policies," blaming the president's tax cuts for driving the government into deficit and saying Bush "will be remembered as the most fiscally irresponsible president in our nation's history." Watch Conrad call the federal debt Bush's legacy

    Conrad, who chairs the Senate's budget committee, accused the president of "squandering" the surplus he inherited from President Bill Clinton and said the increased debt the government has taken on to cover the deficit has undermined the value of the dollar and hurt the overall economy.

    "If they gave out Olympic medals for fiscal irresponsibility, President Bush would take the gold, silver and bronze," Conrad said. "With his eight years in office, he will have had the five highest deficits ever recorded. And the highest of those deficits is now projected to come in 2009, as he leaves office."

    Read it Prof...it took eight years and Obama is going to repair this wound in four....

    You guys are going to be toast for years to come.
    obama never should have made such a stupid promise, then

    makes him look like another person who simply doesn't know what he's talking about

    same as ending detention, ending renditon, closing gitmo, reversing the patriot act, prosecuting cheney, cap and trade, pulling out of iraq, not taxing the middle class, not taxing benefits, pledging card check, ending don't ask don't tell, not hiring lobbyists and cheats, putting legislation online, being transparent, winning in afghanistan, paygo, ending earmarks...

    he's responsible, he's president

    he's NOW

    everyone knows why bush lost

    round and round

    you're dizzy, dog

    Silly and dizzy would be thinking that the President would actully state such a goal only using his OWN judgements as the reasons for doing so.

    Do you think maybe he consulted with the finest economic minds this nation has to offer and then set his goal? Or do you think he shunned all of them like you know who did and relied on "THE BRAIN" Karl Rove?

    I agree Bush was an idiot for conducting himself in such a manner while disreguarding the interests of the nation as a whole. To save his political ass and his family's legacy....what a loser.

    That's funny, vauge. You need to come out more often. Serious, the others' warnings are actually getting boring; just between you and me.

    No it can't. The UCMJ falls under the judicial branch, not the legislative branch; nor can the UCMJ be countermanded by an executive order.

    Scorpion's right on target. Ya'll need to listen up.

    I got a better idea, since we can't prove a negative, hows about you show us where the president and/or Congress can the criminal code, at will. We'll be waiting. I'm so looking foward to this one.

    What does this mean for those who were removed from service by article 15?
    Since marking the homosexual down as having committed homosexual conduct is the only way to expel them... is there no way these people will have the right to re-enter the military?

    Does anyone that knows more than me know?
