    Nice try, Bush increased the national debt by 5 trillion in 8 yrs, vs, Obama's 6 trillion in just 4 yrs. Obama has increased the national debt higher and faster then any president before him. Further under Obama, he has the privileged of being the first president to have our debt downgraded.

    And to elect officials that won't allow unions to screw over the tax payer, is also called an investment.

    Nice try, I never figured you would take that one on. I understand, facts are hard to stomach sometimes.

    it's funny to me how they spend FAR more on getting elected then they will make while they are in office. aslo IF they were sooooo concerned about the defict they could put all the $'s spent on the election into a pool and use IT to help pay down the debt.

    The $ they spend to get elected does not come out of their wallet.

    So, since Obama's fund raising machine is in the toilet this round of elections, the dem talking point is going to be that the election is for sale.

    You guys are laughable, this same echo chamber comment has been knocking around left wing blog sites for a bit now. Maybe if Obama is getting clobbered in fund raising he shouldnt have been demonizing corporate America so much and implementing bad policies. He bit the hand that fed him one time too many.

    That Obama debt half-truth is being pushed as 100% blatant lie from his camp right now. Lowest spending *increase* is being conflated with lowest spending ever, and even worse, it's only the lowest increase if you discount all of 2009 and add that year to Bush's figures. It's a lie on top of a lie. And people are just soaking it up, repeating it like gospel. I feel like I'm taking crazy pills.

    Jesse Ventura said it best -- these guys spend millions of dollars to get a job that pays $100k. His take: "I spent $300,000 in my campaign for Governor, and I made over $400,000."

    Anyone that donates to a politician is a political ignoramus...especially if it is their own money and they are not loaded.
