    The author did aa great job supporting his numbers with where he got the data and does include the bailouts some of the bailouts were signed off by bush so it is appropriately assigned to bush

    Please, just read the fact check on the article, it is a very partisan piece, i feel this type of crap is detrimental to our nation.

    I am not trying to shield the republicans, they bring absolutely NOTHING to the table, my continuing problem is the belief held by some that the only problem is the other "team" (politics has taken on that mythical favorite team mentality), the only way this changes is if both parties lose their core support without proper representation.

    Their should be NO Bush supporters, when he was in power he did the equivalent of walking into the oval office and taking a crap on the desk. Obama, basically the same, and they do it because they know their supporters hate the other side more than they care about what the heck they do, disgusting.

    The main idea is correct like I said the numbers might be a little off, but the idea that he hasn't increased the budget as much as the rest is true

    But thats irrelevant. The guy before him spent oodles of money and racked up a huge deficit. Its illogical to just increase it anyway, but barely less than some other presidents did, and then act like you did something special. Bottom line is that he followed a president that had wreckless fiscal policies and actually increased the budget and is growing the deficit at a ridiculous rate.

    Ummmm...Obama didn't get our country attacked and the World Trade Centers get crumbled down as soon as he got thrown into office. Is this so hard to comprehend?

    Ummm. Bush knew the attacks were being planned and did nothing to prevent them...

    Wait, what?

    Now Bush gets a pass on spending money hand over fist near the end of his term because of 9/11?

    Color me shocked at that excuse.

    I'm a liberal and hated President Bush but I have to say I disapprove of this. The man was many things: a buffoon, an evangelical whack job, a liar, a guy who gave Cheney the reigns of power and the man ultimately responsible for the death of 4,804 America soldiers in a senseless war in Iraq.

    But the notion that -- had he known -- he would have done nothing about 9/11 out of... what? Laziness or a lack of caring or... seriously, what, exactly? It breaks with reality, imo. It's not so bad as the 9/11 Truth movement, but you have to assume more than just incompetence there. You're assuming something almost sinister.

    It's pretty much a long dead issue but it was something I felt I had to express, particularly as a lib.
