    Let's get up-to-date.

    U.S. National Debt Clock

    You can stop worrying. We haven't paid off the public debt since 1836. We will never do so again. Ever.
    With the difference being that the credit rating is now worse, will go down again, people will no longer lend money and the treasury, as it is doing now, wil just print more. Meanwhile the American people have become dependent on government programs and food stamps.

    Even though we were regulalrly doing so through 2001, Bush-43 did so much damage that it will be extremely unlikely for any debt even to be paid down for decades and generations to come.
    And poor Obama, despite all hid promises and extensive experience as a community organizer, couldn't turn it around. Yet the American people voted for this schmuck again.

    Go figure!

    Bush was not the only predecessor to Obama.

    Over four years later and the leftists are still obsessed with Bush. This is very unhealthy.

    So you are saying you want to know how much Clinton, GHWB, or Reagan flew as well and how much it cost per trip?

    Look it up yourself, guy. I'm not your personal researcher.

    I said no such thing and didn't ask you to look up anything. Please read the quote before responding.

    Well, exactly what argument were you trying to make? I don't recall blaming Bush anywhere, so I suppose you were just trying to bait me.

    Either way, Bush flew in AF1. Clinton flew in AF1. Obama is flying in AF1. Republicans are acting douchy.

    All is right with the world.

    Obama himself called this economy "the worst since the great depression", then he takes two 727 jets to Hawaii on taxpayer money. If you can't see a bit of a problem with that you truly have blinders on.

    He's the president. How do you want him to travel? He has a slightly large entourage... you know?

    Let's be honest, you don't give a **** that he's travelling just like every other president has. You just don't like him and you, and your conservative buddies, will use anything you can to get pseudo-mad. In 3 years, if there is a conservative president, I sense you won't give one flying **** when he/she takes a vacation (and he/she will no doubt be flying there).

    LOL! You won't do that with the so-called "National Debt Clock". It's a freaking internet widget. Except when somebody comes along and feeds some new actual data into it, it has no sort of connection to actual Treasury data or operations at all.

    Meanwhile, the deficit last year was $1,089,193 million. If you divided that by the number of days in the year, you'd get your answer. Well, actually you'd get my answer.

    Food stamps ARE a government program, and people are lined up around the block to lend us their money. The 10-year Treasury yield closed on Friday at 1.73%. The S&P downgrade in August of 2011 -- a direct slap in the face to House Republicans in their intransigence -- was greeted by the markets by bidding prices of US debt even higher and yields even lower. The ratings agencies are not at all a factor in global perceptions of the dollar or the US economy. They are an irrelevancy.

    Right, but he spent more time away from the White House per year than any President in the roughly 85 years for which some sort of data exist.

    Get used to it. The history books are going to be dumping on him for centuries.
