    Looking on the bright side--2.7 trillion makes the stimulus look small.

    It would be nice if our government didn't have its own creative accounting system wouldn't it?

    Bush's ADMIN was is NOT the first to play games with the numbers.

    True enough, Editec, but I believe he has set the record.

    Sure thing. Remind me again how Obama's plan to spend 3 TRILLION dollars over the next 4 years, over and above any regular budget is good when you keep complaining about Bush spending?

    Think of it this way..........

    Bush re-routed the plumbing of the economy into the Iraq war, which was pretty much drying things up for those further down the stream, meaning the VA, as well as the infrastructure, just to name a few.

    Obama is trying to put it back to where it is supposed to be. But.....just like if you do regular plumbing, you're gonna get wet (ever have to dig up a water line?). And, if the repairs break, the leak is going to be severe.

    I'll accept a little spillage for the first 6 months to a year.....

    Lets just say this if Obama's plan doesnt work you can talk all you want. But until the world turns to that stuff beneath your shoe why complain you didnt when Bush was running earth shattering deficits. But you know what is so different about this during Bush the money was for other countries this time most of the money is for our country. Umm do you see it or do you have something to pull out of a hat.

    I can't wait until the people take back Washington. This is going to be the 1920s-1930s version 2.0.

    We gotta get rid of the last vestiges of the Bush admin first.
