The amount of denial here by you Navy and a few others is astounding. Bush DOUBLED the national debt in his 8 years for god sake. He use debt spending policies that were doomed to fail and any economist that is not blinded by partisan right wing politics knows this. You do not freaking increase the debt and deficit during boom years.. that is when you are suppose to bring them down. But hey, live in lala land if you want.
Face it, if McCain was in power, he would have cut taxes no doubt, for the rich, which would not have done a damn for the economy, and the deficit most likely would be as big if not bigger. Those are the realities of deficit spending policies of the GOP... it did not work under Reagan and it did not work under Bush. The fiscal conservative died out before Reagan and out of the ashes the big spending tax cutting push the problem to our children Conservative was born.

The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).
