I won't explain how the president has had 4 years. You know he has.

You were talking about the national debt, right?

The fact of the matter is that Bush blew up the debt and most of the debt accrued since then is the result of Bush's actions and policies, such as two unfunded wars and the extension of the Bush tax cuts. Okay that last one is on Obama, but it's not as if the Republicans weren't in favor of it.

I guarantee you this, Spikie: Romney's plan to cut taxes and increase spending will not reduce the debt. Then you'll switch back to "deficts don't matter," I'm sure.
