    First, apologies to the rw's cuz I know how much you hate FACTS.

    National Debt Graph by President

    One problem I have with this is that IF the pubs had done what they promised, Obama would not have had to spend as much as he has. Nor would George Bush's uncontrolled credit spending now be shown as Obama's fault.

    My favorite part of this is


    ReaganBushDebt.org
    The Current ReaganBush Debt is:
    $15,267,638,459,308.70
    which means that in a total of 20 years,
    these three presidents have led to the creation of
    94.23%
    of the entire national debt
    in only 8.4746% of the 236 years of the existence of the United States of America.

    My point is that we cannot afford the increase in debt that Mittens wants.

    Mitt has not Purposed any Increase to Debt, Obama claims he did.

    What I want to know is why Liberals like you claim to be so smart. Then post Debt by President figures. You do know Congress controls the Purse stings right.

    Your Spin means nothing with out considering who controlled Congress at those times.

    Newsflash! Obama isn't running against Bush (or McCain either).

    Doesn't matter anyway because there's not enough time for you Liberals to pull your heads out before the elections.

    Do you mean, "proposed"?

    If so ... Of course he has. Over and over and over again. As recently as last Tuesday, the figures have changed but he has talked about nothing else except adding to the debt. (And, of course, his little running mate is just dying to get his hands on our pocketbooks)

    Larry Summers Slams Romney Tax Plan: 'It's Just Not Possible'

    And, please, for once, rw's stfu about the source OR PROVE its not true.

    Mittens did flip flop, AGAIN,
    If you did not mean to say, "proposed", by all means, correct me.

    Yes I mean Proposed, and the Tax Policy Center is Biased for Obama. Romney claims he can do what he wants to do with out increasing the Debt, the Dems claim he can't.

    And other studies have said it can be done. Hell even the Princeton Economist Obama claimed said it will increase the Debt by 5 Trillion, came out and said Obama was Misquoting him and that he is on record saying the Romney plan "can work"

    You guys want to be able to discount everything one candidate says, and use Claims made by the other Candidate as your proof.

    Sorry may work with your target demographic of low Info Voters, but not most of us.

    Romnesia says (and then says something else - as in last Tuesday!)

    rw's say ... But, no one (including Romney) ever puts up anything that looks like PROOF or even evidence.

    In reference to your graph, Nobel prize winning economist Paul Krugman has pointed out that the unprecedented debt levels of post WWII America represented an equivalent threat to America's solvency back in the late 40s and early 50s. Did America enter a period of austerity? No. Did America actually PAY OFF that massive debt? No AGAIN! America grew the economy so that the debt as a percentage of GDP actually fell over time!!!
