Here comes the mass stupidity again. The war on terror was not started by Obama and it's fucking stupid to think he could turn it off like a faucet once started. You don't spend trillions over almost 10 years and then say fuck it, let's quit and go home. That is basically just what he did in Iraq following bush's plan and he did nothing but catch grief from the right that we left too early. So no, it's nowhere near what bush wasted there and Obama really had no choice in spending what he did, (and clinton had nothing to do with it). And yes I do hold the left to the same standard I hold the right but issues are not always as black and white as the ignorant shitheads from the right try to make them out to be.



But he expanded the drone attacks, expanded the war in astan. You people hate war unless a democrat is doing it.

The Democrats can choose to vote against the tax cuts, in block, if they want. We keep hearing how the deficit is going to go up and choke us to death. Let's look at some real numbers...

National Debt on January 20, 2017 when President Trump took office was $19,947,304,555,212. National Debt on September 11, 2018 was $21,459,790,397,306. That's an increase of $1,512,485,842,094 or +7.6%.

National Debt on January 20, 2009 when President Obama took office was $10,626,877,048,913. National Debt on September 11, 2010 was $13,441,762,397,157. That's an increase of $2,814,885,348,244 or +26.5%.

You keep posting that like it means something. Do you blame FDR for the 1929 crash as well?

I'm sorry that you do not get the meaning of our National Debt increasing or the rate of increase. Spin it however you want
Just because Trump stooges fall for this whataboutism bullshit does not mean that normal thinking people don't know what you are trying to do.

Simple math. I'm sorry it doesn't show something that you want to see. A 7.6% increase versus a 26.5% increase. Think the percentage doesn't tell the picture? Well, it's $1.5 trillion versus $2.8 trillion. You keep telling us that our country is going to financial hell but we aren't borrowing more.

Yes, and there was a major economic contraction. That event required more spending, while a decline in economic activity resulted in lower tax revenue.

Trump has the great good fortune to occupy the oval office during an economic boom - the time to work on balancing the budget, not take on more debt.

Too bad Bush left Obama with the greatest recession since the Great Depression, isn't it? And that Great Depression, another Republican financial fiasco....

That's an awesome excuse. Will you continue to use it for President Trump's entire first term?
