    They talk about deficits and jobs and Clinton's "surplus"

    They compare all of this, but never mention what 9-11 did to us
    Enron (Sarbanes Oxley)
    4 major Hurricanes in 05, shuts down parts of Florida for months
    2 including Katrina in 06

    9-11 brought 2 wars
    The left act like these 2 wars are GWB fault
    Should we have added a tax to pay for them? I say yes now, but a VAT tax that went away the minute the war(s) ended, Like Iraq is now
    I did not think so then for good reasons

    The deficit did not become a problem until Obama went to spending trillions in months instead of trillions in years
    We went from 162 billion of breaking even in 2007 (the last GOP budget) to where we are now
    And yes lost revenue is part of it
    just as it was for GWB after 9-11-2001

    Simply NOT TRUE that we were only 162 billion from breaking even in 2007....

    we added $500 BILLION/a half a trillion, to the National Debt in fiscal 2007

    Date Debt Held by the Public Intragovernmental Holdings

    Total Public Debt Outstanding
    09/29/2006 $8,506,973,899,215.23

    09/29/2007 $9,007,653,372,262.48

    why

    Your looking at total with interest and not for the year
    interest added
    we are trying to balance the budget, then work on the total deficit

    In 2004 the federal budget deficit was 412 billion dollars. In 2005 it dropped to 318 billion dollars. In 2006 the deficit dipped to 248 billion dollars. And, in 2007 it fell below 200 billion to 162 billion dollars. During the Bush years the average unemployment rate was 5.2 percent, the economy saw the strongest productivity growth in four decades and there was robust GDP growth.

    After an unheard of record deficit last year of $1.4 Trillion the economy is on track to experience a $1.47 Trillion deficit this year.

    the so called ''budget deficit'' might have gone down those few years but the National debt went up.....from 5.8 trillion to 11.9 trillion under president bush's fiscal 8 years.

    emergency spending was put OUTSIDE of the budget, and the Iraq war and afghan war were put OUTSIDE of the budget, AND of course the SS surplus monies were put INSIDE the budget, making the Deficit APPEAR like it was going down or less than the actual deficit was.....

    that kind of crap, outside of the afghan war and iraq war, is still going on now....(the afghan war and iraq war were put INSIDE the obama budget so this is affecting deficits with him) but the SS surplus is still making our budget deficits appear smaller...while adding boocoos to the national debt.

    the gatewaypundit is LYING TO YOU.

    You get a few facts right but your analysis of what they mean leaves something to be desired.
