Federal Deficit, Jan 21 2001:$5,727,776,738,304.64
Feferal Deficit, Jan 01 2007: $8,678,229,324,205.41
That's a $2.951T increase, not the 5T or 6T you claimed.
But.... lets look at whats happened since then, with Liberals running Congress:
Federal Deficit, Jan 01 2007: $8,678,229,324,205.41
Federal Deficit, Dec 18 2009:$12,097,698,782,543.93
That's a $3.419T increaase, and represents a 15% greater increase to the debt under GWB and the Republican Congress -- all in half the time.
So, the fact is that the liberals running congress have increated the debt FAR faster than GWB and the GOP Congress.

I've also noticed that alot of Obama supporters have a tendency to blame republicans for delaying or going against something that democrats offer up..never once mentioning or admitting that thier same party did the exact same things under a republican majority....and visa versa.
I swear that both Democrats and Republicans should get the All Time Hypocrtical award. (and if there is no such thing then one should be made)

If your gripe is with GWB and the GOP congress and their raising of the debt 2001-2006, then you -must- take more than double the exception with the Liberals running Congress from 2007 to present, as said liberals have raised the debt MORE than TWICE as fast as GWB and the GOP congress.
In his case, this will -not- be the case - thus, the hypocrisy.
