I just have to say, I am a liberal and I am certainly not fond of the Tea Party, but I think your OP is extremely divisive and even borderline offensive.

There are better ways to convey your thoughts than intentionally trying to peeve someone off. By doing what you did, you have clouded otherwise well-meaning people's minds with anger to the point where they probably won't give a crud about what you are trying to point out.

Compared to the alternatives at the last election and the completely 'mental' ones now then I would have to say that you need to stay the distance and made do with what you have.....In America there really needs to be a re-think and an attitude change amongst many of the greedy whom think money is God....

The world is changing, you need to as well and I think Obama, love him or not is actually your best chance...

So the whole cost of the war including the last three years is on Bush?

Well, some simple math can easily remedy this BS graphic with slanted numbers in it. Why? Because now Obama is partially responsible for Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Egypt, and I am sure there are more to come. Also the numbers for Bush are over 8 years, and Obama's are just for 2. Let's see how the numbers really play out when he leaves office shall we?

Good.... I like the fact that it elicited a response from you............. being a Liberal am I correct in assuming that you stand between the two parties and have 'another way' in American politics or are you just Indecisive and unable to make a decision ??

The Figures for Obama supposedly include Projections until 2017.............

Regarding the BIG wars (Libya - why are we there (UK & France) and Egypt ???? - you got me there)....Obama INHERITED Afghanistan and Iraq and to do an immeadite pull out of troops and support on the day of his in-augration (as you suggest ??) would be impossible and extremely dangerous to those in that situation.......

Thats your theory. I didn't care for either candidate. Looking back, I'm not sure Obama really was the "best bet".

That's just it though, he didn't even hold the numbers, he increased them. There were things that could have immediately been done to set things in motion for a draw down, but there wasn't. You cannot calculate things in Obama's term, and credit them to Bush. If that's the case Obama care is going to add trillions to the deficit over time if it isn't repealed, where are those numbers?

No one blames him for causing the debt.

We blame him for not being smart enough to reinforce spending cuts.

it's like stopping someone from eating all the pie at dinner? It's not very hard.

Not sure what you are saying because if Bush for 8 years was 5.07 trillion and Obama is at 1.44 trillion after two years, his projected at 2017 should be 8.65 trillion. So that is better? Did I miss something?

Having a Clock ticking away doesn't actually really help..apart from continuing the Partisan arguements i guess......however the BIGGER the debt created during Bush's Reign (?) means that unless you suddenly CUT BACK ALL spending at the time of change of President then the pile just keeps getting bigger and BIGGER.....

What all the Anti Obama Brigade seem to conviently forget is that the times of Plenty for most and excess for a few during Bushes reign actually have to be paid back later........do they want to give up that wealth......NO!!!!

Does America need to give up that percieved wealth...actually YES...........

there you have it.......... you (and the Western world) are actually not as wealthy as we like to think we are..

and the obama defenders are forgetting the true cost of obama care and the increased entitlement spending and the rising costs of healthcare of medicare and medicaid with no way to even think about paying for it.

partisan was your post man.
