    I answered, now please tell me how a conservative can be ok with deficit spending in the trillions.
    Unlike many here I understand the budget process, how it is created and where the spending was. I know that 9/11 cost over a trillion dollars and that is part of the Bush debt. I also know that Katrina, Floyd, and Ike were disasters that had to be funded and those cost billions that were added to the deficits. There is no question that Congress spends too much money and Bush allowed some of that to happen. The problem is Obama put Bush spending on steroids and got nothing for it other than higher unemployment, greater debt, andd lower economic growth. Deficit spending is only necessary when it comes to national defense and to prevent another trillion dollar 9/11

    Calling the President of the United States of America a vulger name is being offencive and disrespectful. I disagree with most of President Bush's policies but I would never be vulger when I refer to him.

    All I am doing is citing actual facts. Bush never had trillion dollar deficits, Obama has had two and a third one this year. Feel free to go to the U.S. Treasury site to get the facts and where the money is being spent

    We can argue about the totals but President Bush added 500billion a year to the Deficit. Maybe more. That is not ok.

    How much of that deficit was due to entitlement cost of living increases? How much of that deficit was due to 9/11 and the natural disasters? How much of that deficit is due to national security issues? As I stated and if you go to the site I gave you and simply change the year you will see deficits by year and have the ability to compare the last couple years to see where that spending actually went up or down. Again Bush didn't have trillion dollar deficits and Obama has had two which cannot be argued or disputed.

    The problem I have with the Obama deficits are the results that have not been generated. How do you spend that much money and grow unemployment?

    Are not these things possibly things that should be planned for and barring that at least dealt with at the time and dealt with in a manner recognizing the costs coming?

    Right, we should have planned for the expense of 9/11 and the city of New Orleans being almost destroyed.

    So your issue with deficit spending is not the spending but what its spent on.

    I think Winston was saying that its a choice. Not the whole 9/11 attack itself but where the money to fix it came from. If we had unexpected expenses then we have to stop spending somwhere else. President Bush and a Republican congress chose to not limit spending in other areas. Instead they chose to almost double our national debt.
