Let me modify my closing remark to That's about $3.6 trillion of the $5 trillion you mentioned.

It's not as if a president's policies stop having an effect on the economy the day after he leaves office, or even when his last budget fiscal year ends. This is easy to demonstrate for Bush because of the ongoing cost of two wars, the Bush tax cuts and the Medicare bill. That's a lot on the credit card. How much of those ongoing expenses should Obama be held responsible for?

This shouldn't be difficult to understand.
