    Absolutely, no question about it, Bush although he not once proposed a 3.6 trillion dollar budget through his incredible influence on the govt. got Obama to implement the Bush policies 100% and those policies led to the 3.6 trillion budget. Amazing how that "stupid cowboy" was able to convince so many of the intellectual superior Democrats to go along with his policies.

    Jan of 2001 the DOW was 10,587.59, Jan of 2009 the DOW was 8,281.22.
    Today (Jan 12,2011) it is 11,848.

    In the Jan of 2001 the National Debt was 5,727,776,738,304
    Jan of 2009 brought us a National Debt of 10,628,881,485,510
    Ohhh.. dude…that’s almost double.

    See how easy it is to cherry pick your stats?

    Talk to me when Obama finishes his second term and the republicans have spent the entire eight years saying no.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    And what is the debt Obama has created in two years? 10.6 to 14.0 so guess it is easy to ignore the past two years as a diversion from the past. In 8 years Bush added 4.9 trillion but in 2 plus years Obama has added 3.4 trillion. Deficit for fiscal year 2011 is projected over a trillion dollars again, guess that was Bush's fault as well.

    Also since when is the DOW and indication to a liberal that things are better. I remember the "Bush Recession" when the Dow was over 14K.

    Like I said…many times and more than likely will many more times.. to you. Comparing two four-year terms with one of a little over two years is disingenuous. If that is all you have to go with I guess it will have to do…seeing as your all your party has to run on is opposition to the current President.

    No platform to speak of, just lets undo what Obama has put up. When you ask them what they will replace it with, its …crickets.

    Until now no one had the opportunity to hear what the Republicans were going to do. After two years of Democrat control of Congress and a leftwing President, 3.5 trillion has been added to the debt. If the GOP House makes reductions in the deficit who is going to get credit for it in your world?

    You choose to believe what you are told but ignore the actual facts. Repealing Obamacare will cut spending and impact the deficit. There is no question that the deficit will be cut, the question is who will you give credit to for that cut?

    Interesting how a rebate check is a tax cut in the liberal world. Still getting that cut? Didn't think so.

    Only in your world, a tax cut is what Reagan and Bush did, cut rates, not give you a one time check that you can spend and then it is gone. Interesting that you don't seem to understand the difference.

    The deal includes an extension of unemployment insurance and middle-class tax credits, a 2-percentage-point decrease in payroll taxes employees pay in 2011 (which the president said Tuesday would "add about $1,000 to the take-home pay of the average family"), and an estate-tax exemption up to $5 million.
