Right, the 8 years of reckless spending on un-winnable wars and a congress more interested in standing up to some principle than running the country had nothing to do with it...

The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, ... to pay the Debts...
To borrow money on the credit of the United States.

You still blaming Bush for Obama's failed policies?
Bush may not have done the best in your books but Obama is down right trashing this country and you can't see that.
Obama will go down in history as the worst president ever.

No, I'm blaming Bush for Bush's failed policies. The success or failure of Obama's policies is largely yet to be seen.

You can't see the writing on the wall? That his policies will majorly fail, and those that are successful will bring further ruin to this country?

I know, it's going to get a lot worse. Thanks to our current Commander in Chief.

We were what, 6 trillion in debt when Bush left office? So, in 2.5 years, Obama has spent additional 9 trillion, but yeah, Bush must have told him to spend the money, right? Hmm...

its understood that bush was not so good. some hate him. some think he was just not so good. most people can agree with you he was not the best.

what does that have to do with the comments about our current president??
personally i would never say things about our president like the poster did.
its just not right. i dont disagree that he is screwed up. i just would not use "the N word" to show how bad he is. it does not make anyone look smarter.

if you dont agree with the comments, thats ok. counter it with some facts to show that the poster is wrong. countering the posters claim with "bush was no good" is not the way this works. it makes you sound less smart than i know you are. bush is old news come up with anything new, please!

hate bush all you want. you can start a bush sucks ass post like toes did.
he is the past. most people now are talking about the current presidents issues. its time that obama and his party own up to the facts.

our current president has spent quite a bit on his un-winnable war, as well as his welfare state.

if your gonna bitch about spending from bush, you aint got a leg to stand on. that just makes you sound like a hipocrite. give up on the spending rants, till your party gets a clue.

Bash Bush all you want, and I do on his spending policies, but you can not dismiss the cold hard facts.

2008 deficit - $460 Billion
2009 deficit - $1.41 Trillion

The President's budget request for 2010 totaled $3.55 Trillion

The U.S. unfunded liabilities have reached $61.6 Trillion. We will NEVER pay this off without drastic cuts in spending.

With all the spin going on about the debt ceiling and budget cuts, nobody in media EVER explains the baseline budgeting. If a budget was introduced that froze spending at it's current level, the CBO would score it as a $9.5 Trillion cut over 10 years because there is THAT MUCH automatic increases built in.

If something isn't done soon, this country is toast.

obama has done nothing but lie. period. tripled the debt, lied about the stimulus, lied about shovel ready projects, lied about open government, lied about lobbists, taken away our rights with obamacare and generally ruled like a power corrupted dictator just like the majority democrat congress for the last 8 years. there is no need to wait to see his effects....they are already evident.

Spending rant? I was merely trying to point out that Obama does not deserve sole responsibility for the lowered credit rating.

And I don't have a party. Both sides long since abandon the center.

I heard a good analogy this morning. Who remembers anyone but Lincoln during the Civil war? Who were his advisors? Who was the speaker of the house? The Civil War and Lincoln are snyonomous. This mess is Obama's to clean up regardless of who you want to blaim and he's not doing it.

Look at the years that followed the civil war. IMO those were some of our darkest days. I really hope we can avoid a situation like that. Obama does remind me a little of grant, minus the war hero status.

Look at ANY past presidency and tell me from memory who was vice president, speaker of the house, majority whip, etc, etc. The era of any president is that of the president and no one else. He said he was going to lead and he hasn't done it. Make any excuse you want............ he still is not a leader.
