FACT: Owebama racked up more debt ($5.6 trillion) in his first term of office than all other administrations combined since the forming of this country.

Three things:

1. $5.6 trillion is not more than half of a $16 trillion debt. As Clinton says, you guys seem unable to do simple math.

2. Our debts was $11.9 trillion at the end of FY 2009, Bush's last budget year. Which shifts money from Obama to Bush.

3. So what? Your math and your resopnse are diversions to my point, which remains: man up and take responsibility for the mess we are in, none of which was Obama's fault. The mess was, and is, the responsibility of Bush and the right wing, and remains so as the latter tries as much as they can to keep the country down.

In the words of well-known bullies on this board: grow a pair and stop the conserve-tiv-it-to me whining.
