    Only a small part of Obama's inherited shortfall came from the 2008 bank bailouts, which though large, were quickly recouped and at this point, taken in isolation, have cost the country very little. Obama more directly owns other chunks of the debt -- attributable largely to the stimulus, the tax deal and arguably his continuation of the wars. But the figures are fairly small compared to the overall debt, the vast bulk of which was baked into the cake when he took office.

    Only up tight elite liberals in ivory towers - and their fancy lawyers - use numbers. Us normal joe-the-plumber Americans prefer to eyeball it, like men. Numbers are for fucking pussies.
