    It's Bush's fault. Obama is a victim of the worst economy since the great depression. Republicans forced Obama to spend, spend, spend money. Money that we do not have. It was a crisis. He had to save GM. It was the war in Iraq. It was the war in Afghanistan. We have to support our allies in Europe and prop up their banks. Also.... It's Bush's fault. If we didn't spend all this money we don't have, the world would have ended! Solyndra needed that money! We created or saved a lot of jobs. We saved GM and Chrylser. We passed Obamacare. Romney is mean. The Stimulus will show a profit. The multiplier effect! SAVED JOBS!!! Bush did it!!!

    Some more handy excuses and scapegoats that Obama uses to flower over his atrocious record: George W Bush, faced Economic ”headwinds", Uncooperative Republicans drinking “Slurpees”, Congressional inaction, Super PAC ad spending, George W Bush, lack of stimulus money, Economic woes of Spain, Italy, Greece, George W. Bush, ATM usage, airport ticket kiosks, the Arab Spring, Japanese tsunami, George W Bush, Oil speculators, The Evil 1%, White man's greed, Trayvon Martin, George W Bush.

    Come on, everyone knows Obama didn't spend any money...........didn't you see Ducky Tucky's thread??

    He masterfully is hypnotizing his followers, filling their eyes and ears with illusion all the while laughing about how utterly stupid they must be.

    The Siren Song is in full swing.

    Did the Bush spending include the two wars that he was keeping off the books?

    And of course, the truth of the matter is that Pelosi-Reid- and President Elect Obama wouldn't let Bush anywhere near the 2009 budget:

    'It was supposed to have been completed last fall, but Democrats opted against election-year battles with Republicans and former President George W. Bush.'


    Obama signs massive, 'imperfect' spending bill - politics - White House - msnbc.com



    'Feb 26, 2009
    OBAMA 2009 BUDGET PROJECTS DEFICIT OF $1.75 TRILLION

    President calls for fiscal responsibility and hard choices, but not yet.

    Washington, DC - President Obama’s $3.5 trillion 2009 budget will spend money today and burden taxpayers for generations. Under the Presidents proposal, spending will increase to nearly 35 percent of GDP, far from the historical norm of 20 percent, and the deficit will soar to 12.3 percent of GDP, levels not seen since the height of World War II.'

    Vote responsibly next time, peeps.
