    Here is a non-partisan assessment on Obama's contribution to the debt.

    http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-m...obama-inherited-deficits-bush-administration/

    So guess what, repubs/cons? The Bush Tax cuts were in fact harmful.

    However, I do think it is a fair criticism to say Obama had a significant contribution to the deficit. Despite that, I think this article proves that the GOP exaggerated it quite a bit.

    GOPers are too stupid or too dishonest to admit it was Bush who ran up the National Debt. But that has always been the plan of the GOP run up large deficits when they are in office and then blame it on liberals.

    Adding 4 trillion to the debt with no return is alot worse than any other president in the history of America has done. While a bunch are just as guilty, Obama took it to a whole other level of corruption/lies and straight up destroying the economy.

    Did Bush add 4 trillion to the debt from 2008 to 2010? Nope, he was at his ranch in crawford texas. So that only leaves the democrat controlled senate/congress and white house from 2008 to 2010 to blame. I think you are the one who is too fucking stupid and dishonest here.

    We don't even need to debate you. Did you not read the article? The Bush tax cuts are going to amount to a total of 8 trillion over the next 7 years.
