Now note something. The things OBAMA did (TARP, etc) took up a rather small part of the defecit. If you also notice, Bush's wars (Iraq, Afaganistan...both inherited by Bush), though noticeable, do not make the majority of the shortfall.
The real villians are THE BUSH TAX CUTS. Of the projected 1.9 trillion dollar shortfall, those cuts take up as much as 8 trillion of that.
Eight. Trillion. Dollars.
So, once and for all....it is NOT Barack Obama that got us in this mess. It's US. Our refusal to pay the bill that got us here. Not to mention our GOP/Tea Party enablers.
