You don't get it. Just because there is a republican president doesn't mean conservative policies are implemented.

Ah, okay. Heads you win; tails I lose. Got it.

So remind me then: why is it you didn't complain about this for the eight years Bush was president? And why is it that Reagan is considered conservative when he reversed a 35 year trend of lower deficits (as a percentage of GDP)?

And why do you think it is that the debt has gone down during every Democratic presidential administration except Obama's? Did all Democratic presidents implement "conservative" policies except Obama? Or can you see from the graph what might explain the difference?
