Add that to what Obama has spent and we’re pushing a trillion $, however I believe that what Obama has spent will EVENTUALLY come back. We are also now including the the cost of the Iraq war in the deficit number. That’s about another $700 billion ( http://costofwar.com/ )
We could have a kick ass single payer medical system with that kind of cash.

Unemployment when bush left was near 7%. When Bush came in there was a $200 billion surplus, when he left a $482 billion deficit. That deficit number at the end of Bush’s term does not include spending for the war in Iraq.
Just a couple of facts to ruin your day, sorry.

Everyone loved America and wanted act like an American or become an American.
Bush destroyed that love for USA. I’ve been a member of the Republican party for almost my whole life. It is no longer is the party it used to be and to compare 8 years to less than 9 months takes a fool or a High School flunky.
It is no wonder only 65% can apply for college, and of 35% that do, another 65% will not be excepted because they can’t think & understand what their reading (although they think they do). That leaves only about 12% smart Americans. Are you among them ? Thank you Obama for for trying to repair the damage done by 8 years of hypocrisy.

The current US administration faces shivering challenges to divert the curse of their general malaise and dauting future threats with their economy, their currency and its social issues. Besides, unilateral and reckless financial and diplomatic US policies had turned the latest empire in a sort of world pariah.

When we commit an offense, we’re confronted with self-reflection and morally obliged to reform and improve. Mr. Obama discourse is timidly and strategically addressing this curse. Let’s just say at this point that this multipolar world in which we live now is watching closely.

America is showing real leadership which was missing in the last eight years.His speech was outstanding in every sense of the word.

Obama is Very wise to distance himself and his administration from says of W. Bush.

Hell, for the last 120 or so years all America has done is meddle in other countries’ affairs. It set up dictators and then took them down, tried to make Americans out of people who didn’t want to be Americans, sold arms to warring factions within countries, sold arms to warring countries, supported tyrants and terrorists, etc., etc. On top of it all, the dumb American voters keep replacing Democrats and Republicans with more Democrats and Republicans and then stand around with their thumbs up their posteriors wondering why everyone hates America! My advice for Obama: remove all troops from every country around the world, make restitution to the Iraqis, stop selling weapons to other countries, abolish American terrorist organizations like the CIA, FBI, BATF, and IRS, and stop giving unwanted and unsolicited opinions to other countries.

I am sorry to say, although unfortunate, President George W. Bush, gave of himself (all by himself) plenty of reason, on a daily basis, why he should be a punching bag for anyone.

Let’s see, the economy crashed after Obama was sworn in…No, after he was elected . . . Oh wait, that’s right, that happened in September 2009, on the PREVIOUS administrations watch. An administration that had EIGHT years, to have been aware, of what may occur. Oh heck, house sales skyrocketing, fat cats getting fatter, what the heck. But obviously, you are right, it’s all President Obama’s fault.
