Default What Did Bush Leave Us ? What is Obama Leaving Us ? Good/Bad.

Well, the top 3 for me:

Bush: 1- Almost total economic collapse./ At least were gonna get better roads via the stimulus.
2- An Iraqi war based on Iraq's WMD's (there was not any)./ At least Saddam's not with us anymore.
3- World wide disrespect among many nations./ But Israel, Britain, etc... is closer than ever.

Obama: 1- Were gonna be in debt for a good while./ Saved the nation's biggest banks...so that we folks on main street can still have an institution to get in debt to.
2- More debt with the immediate costs of health care reform./ Hopefully, no more folks getting screwed over by our current health care system.
3- If he turns out to actually be the anti-christ and succeeds in taking out the world./ Well, I guess the "good" of us will have heaven to look forward to... to be continued...

)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

Bush left us with over a half a trillion $ budget deficit (from a $128 billion budget surplus). Nearly $11 trillion in national debt, over 4,000 troops dead for a catastrophic mistake, a failing economy, failing housing market, a declining stock market, a poorly funded education system, and even more hatred from the Muslim world. Not to mention failing to provide better security on our borders.

But the best thing he left us was....................................ALONE!

I think you'd better stop slurping that Obaaaaaaama Kool Aid and open your eyes.

President Barack Obama has repeatedly claimed that his budget would cut the deficit by half by the end of his term. But as Heritage analyst Brian Riedl has pointed out, given that Obama has already helped quadruple the deficit with his stimulus package, pledging to halve it by 2013 is hardly ambitious. The Washington Post has a great graphic which helps put President Obama’s budget deficits in context of President Bush’s.

What’s driving Obama’s unprecedented massive deficits? Spending. Riedl details:

President Bush expanded the federal budget by a historic $700 billion through 2008.

President Obama would add another $1 trillion.

President Bush began a string of expensive finan­cial bailouts. President Obama is accelerating that course.

President Bush created a Medicare drug entitle­ment that will cost an estimated $800 billion in its first decade. President Obama has proposed a $634 billion down payment on a new govern­ment health care fund.

President Bush increased federal education spending 58 percent faster than inflation. Presi­dent Obama would double it.

President Bush became the first President to spend 3 percent of GDP on federal antipoverty programs. President Obama has already in­creased this spending by 20 percent.

President Bush tilted the income tax burden more toward upper-income taxpayers. President Obama would continue that trend.

President Bush presided over a $2.5 trillion increase in the public debt through 2008. Setting aside 2009 (for which Presidents Bush and Obama share responsibility for an additional $2.6 trillion in public debt), President Obama’s budget would add $4.9 trillion in public debt from the beginning of 2010 through 2016.

UPDATE: Many Obama defenders in the comments are claiming that the numbers above do not include spending on Iraq and Afghanistan during the Bush years. They most certainly do. While Bush did fund the wars through emergency supplementals (not the regular budget process), that spending did not simply vanish. It is included in the numbers above. Also, some Obama defenders are claiming the graphic above represents biased Heritage Foundation numbers. While we stand behind the numbers we put out 100%, the numbers, and the graphic itself, above are from the Washington Post. We originally left out the link to WaPo. It has been now been added.

CLARIFICATION: Of course, this Washington Post graphic does not perfectly delineate budget surpluses and deficits by administration. President Bush took office in January 2001, and therefore played a lead role in crafting the FY 2002-2008 budgets. Presidents Bush and Obama share responsibility for the FY 2009 budget deficit that overlaps their administrations, before President Obama assumes full budgetary responsibility beginning in FY 2010. Overall, President Obama’s budget would add twice as much debt as President Bush over the same number of years.

It simply amazes me how ignorant some people are these days. To say Bush is responsible for the mortgage crisis is absolutely INSANE. The mortgage crisis is at the center of the economic woes.

Without 9/11 Bush would be seen in a totally different light. I can only imagine how bad off we'd be if Clinton or Obama were president at that time.

You can knock Bush all you want, bottom line is there is NO democrat that could have handled the disasters Bush had to deal with. 9/11 happened just 10 months after he took office. Can you see Obama being able to handle such a catastrophe at this time of his term?

Also, liberals talk about the surplus Clinton left. How did he come by that surplus? Reducing the military played a large part of that. Reducing the military weakens the country, but liberals are too damn blind to understand that the great "utopia" simply doesn't exist.

Another thing, when you talk about money spent, be specific on where the money went and why. There are two hard-core liberals here at work and I've gotten to the point where I ask for specifics, which of course they can never give because they always talk out of their arses.
