    He's the all time champ!

    Whether they have a D or R after their name, I'm gonna support em all.

    Doesn't mean I won't criticize them, though.
    What makes you think Obama is responsible for that spike? Do you think the worst recession in history might have had something to do with it or are you truly a complete moron? Do you actually think we would not have had a spike if Romney had been president? Maybe it would not have because maybe we would have had congress do what was necessary instead of run the debt up to blame a democrat and convince dumbshits like you that he was responsible.

    Thanks Hillary and corrupt DNC!

    Don't take my word for it, go back and check the tape and see what I said about Trump AND Hillary.

    Here's a hint: I said they both sucked.
    You think the dipshit in the whitehouse is great and that is obvious.

    Well, first I just want to thank you for the kind words...

    Obama added nearly $10 Trillion to the debt in only 8 years.

    No matter how you try to spin and twist it, those are the facts.

    Obama is the all time champion of adding to the national debt.

    No other president comes close.

    At least he number one in something!

    He's number one! He's number one!

    Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that “the buck stops here.” Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. ________

    Senator Barack Obama

    No president added to the national debt, period. Congress holds the national purse strings, not the president. We understand that you hate Obama, but really, blaming him for that twenty trillion debt is just disingenuous.

    Don't disagree.

    Sort of like blaming GW Bush for the 2007-2008 economic/housing collapse. But that one is still a pretty popular one in many circles.

    You got it all wrong.

    I don't blame Obama for that twenty trillion debt.

    I blame him for nearly half of it, though.

    Because that's how much was added when he was in office.

    Thanks Obama!

    Yes, and it's equally disingenuous.

    People like to ascribe to the presidency powers that it simply doesn't have.
