    Yep, I just checked. Nixon/Ford were the last Republican presidents to lower the National Debt.

    Given the the greatest recession since the great depression he inherited, not bad for just half a term. Democrat presidents still hold a 2 to 0 advantage over the GOP since 1976.

    If the Democrats are successful in ending the temporary tax breaks for the top 1%, then we have a chance to reduce the National debt. Trickle down theory has been a proven failure for 3 decades.

    remind me the congressional control for the various presidents. How is trickle down a failure?

    we have a huge national debt because those seduced into voting for big spending politicians aren't properly charged with paying for that spending.

    Under FDR THE national debt was reduced by are you ready............ 24.4 %. President Obama will have 6 more years so I guess we will have to wait and see, it is going to be really hard for him he inherited a economic mess at a time when our economy is being shipped to foreign countries. To make matters worst he has to try to work with a republicans party that has only one agenda that being to defeat him in 2012. I think the republicans threw the elections why else would they run McCain and Palin.

    So it would also be my fundamental right to not buy from UNION THUG SERVICES INC..........would it not?

    So it would also be my fundamental right to opt out of buying the Bloated Salaries, Gold Plated Health Care, and Diamond Inlayed Pensions of all Public Sector Union slobs.....

    This whole notion of being harrassed, because you did not receive a purchase, is silly for that reason.
    Whats silly......is should anyone express their "fundamental right" to boycott union services.........

    ..........men with guns are dispatched to their door.
