    Good to see you will, grudgling, blame The Obama for at least part of debt.

    I bit of it yes, but I really wouldn't call it blame as almost all of the spending was necessary. To me, blame implies that he did something wrong (really the biggest blame I have for him, is he hasn't done enough)

    Ah. The "I think it's OK because I think it was necessary" excuse.
    Given that, there's no blame for GWB for any of his deficts because all the spending was necessary.

    None of that changes my view that it was a good thing.

    I don't disagree, if one believes what he did was necessary. Its all opinion of course.

    I think you are under the assumption that I am not speaking from what I believe to be true (at least that's the only perspective I can come up with that would create the context necessary for your comment to make sense). I doubt you and I have the same perspective or gut feelings about this.

    Obama is not responsible for causing the deficit he inherited from Bush.

    However, Obama IS responsible for the causing the deficit has has added AFTER he took office.

    Also, Obama is now responsible for ADDRESSING the deficit, regardlees of who CAUSED it.

    Seems fairly simple to me.

    The Obama is responsible for every dime that was spent in the time he took office. That a budget may have been passed before He took office is meaningless -- the Buck Stops Here, I recall somone once said.
