Obama hasn't done enough what? Spending? He's spent $6 trillion dollars (going by the debt added).


It's true that the debt has increased by $6 trillion since January 20, 2009, the day Obama took office. But about $4 billion of that debt is the direct result of Bush administration policy, mostly the loss of revenue due to the Bush tax cuts and the cost of wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

That's your cue to commence whining that Obama blames Boooosh for the debt. But no matter how much you whine, it is simply a fact that Bush is responsible for about two-thirds of it.

One could argue Obama is to blame for not convincing Congress to let the Bush tax cuts expire and for not ending the wars sooner, but you can't make that argument because you were against letting the tax cuts expire and ending the wars sooner.
