    Funny how there was no outcry by conservatives when the US national debt went up 100% in the 8 years of the Bush administration.

    Funny how conservatives have no solutions to the problems they at least in a big part caused... yes doing the tired old "tax cuts" bit is not a solution if you keep spending increases.. we knew that before Bush and that was yet again confirmed under Bush.

    If you listen to conservatives, you could cure cancer by cutting taxes..
    This is why the Republicans were thrown out of office, because no conservative complained, is this the theory you are sticking with?

    There is a difference between a conservative, and a republican, just as there is a difference between a liberal, and a democrat.

    Problem is, they are two in the same, there is little difference between the two party monopoly we have today.

    The problem with your post is that you falsely assume that Bush was a Conservative. He was not, and neither were his supporters. True Conservatives, such as myself, bashed Bush over this, as well as bash Obama today for doing the same.

    Nonsense engendered by eating too much mad-cow.

    The Americans complained vociferously and that is why the Repbulicans suffered major defeats in 2006 and 2008 - the party base won't vote for this socialist **** or the people that try to pass it.

    The more constipated the socialists are, the happier the Americans are.

    They didn't really complain when the debt ceiling was raised under Bush, you know. They may have made some noises for propaganda purposes, but they didn't vote against it.

    Just like they voted FOR the war in Iraq.

    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Have you considered the long term effects that will have on the nations growth?

    Now is not the time to ask that question. That question should have been asked, a 'long term' ago...

    Now is an acceptable time frame due to the low birth rate that accompanies highly developed societies.

    So reducing federal, state spending, this is just not an option, just print, inflate, and destroy?

    How long are people going to stand for this, how about foreign investors, how long will they continue to, invest, or trust this irresponsible country, and their ponzi scheme?
