    I just heard Hannity say the old line that Obama has put us into debt in a shorter time than Bush has. Which is true except the fact that Bush burned through the entire surplus THEN spent us into debt. Obama didnt spend a surplus. How much was the surplus spending and debt spending combined?

    There was no surplus from Clinton. I agree Bush was a fiscal fucking nightmare, along with being a liberty grabbing fucktard. Obama is just a more articulate and perhaps more cautious version of the same power drunken fucktard Bush was.

    Both sides get this so wrong.

    There was a BUDGET surplus left behind by Clinton, but the DEBT was still there. Hence the rebate checks Bush sent out rather than using it to pay debt or as Clinton said at his final SOTU address," Save Social Security first."

    I used my check to buy my first DVD player, the Sixth Sense and The Matrix on DVD.

    PS Hannity is a paid shill for the Koch Borthers. 1.3 million a year. Of course, Rush gets 2 mill a year from them, so hannity is a cheap date by comparison.

    No surplus?

    Then where did those $300 checks come from?

    I'm not going to explain this situation out. Clinton did not leave a surplus. It's a myth perpetuated to keep you swimming in a circle and I am NO Bush Supporter. Stroke, ya'll. Stroke.

    So let me get this straight...Bush spent over 600 billion but Hannity is only counting after Bush spent over 200 billion? Is that right?
