He is spending this money to get us out of this mess Bush left behind. Remember, the economy nose-dived in October last year.
How much spending are you going to be okay with? How can you say it is alright to spend a trillion dollars when we do not have it. Sure President Obama says he will cut the deficit in half, but the only way for that to happen is if everything falls together perfectly. Even then the accumulated interest will make it almost impossible to payoff.
He got a bum deal, but you have to hold him responsible for what he is doing. Saying he is doing it because Bush did that is taking all responsibility away from President Obama.
