The unreal amnesia of Republicans [View all]

"Barack Obama has spent like a drunken sailor", they say.

Indeed, the President has spent some money in attempts to keep the economy from sliding into another depression but it's more like he's been sipping on a Miller Lite than drinking like a drunk sailor.

To listen to some of these folks, GWB left this country in good shape and Obama spent us into oblivion. They ignore or forget that the first budget Obama received had a $1.2 trillion dollar deficit, including the TARP bailout of the banks. They forget that Bush said it was necessary to keep the entire world economy from collapsing. Was that just a minor glitch to these folks? Why do they ignore it?

Was the President supposed to take a trillion dollar deficit and bring it to a balance in his first year or in his first term? It should be pointed out that $1 trillion dollars of the present deficit spending belongs to George W Bush and the Republicans. It is unreal. But the criticism of the Republicans toward Barack Obama is totally unfounded. They are out of touch with reality.
