You're the one putting a hard political spin on this, completely ignoring the legacy costs of Bush administration policies and programs (the two wars, the Bush tax cuts, Medicare Part D, etc.) on the FY09, budgets and beyond. I completely understand why you want (need?) to saddle Obama with responsibility for the consequences of Bush's spend more/tax less policies.
Absolutely, we should talk about legacy costs, lets talk honestly. Who started Social Security? Who started Medicare?

Is this going to be a situation where you say they're the most successful programs in the History Of The United States of America, or, the democrats switched places with the GOP after those programs started, or, potato salad?
