Uh no...the point being made is the silence from the rightwingers...until now. It just seems a tad bit disingenuous.

perhaps some of you missed it when Obama put the true cost of the wars in Afghanistan & Iraq on the books instead of some supplemental stimulus bill like Bush did repeatedly to hide it. How do you think we were paying $8 to $10 billion a month for six years to engage in such endevaours? Those trillions is what Bush & the Cheney war cabal indebted us with but hey we do need a $125 million new embassy in Baghdad but to hell with healthcare!

I'm sure in your world that's all you managed to see. I see you're screaming very loud about Obama outdoing Bush so who's more hypocritical? The people that didn't complain when it first happened or the people that complained when it first was happening and now are eerily silent the second go around?

Did you add up $8-$10 billion/month by chance for all those months by chance? Let's just say it's been 8 year or 96 months for both wars. Does that , on your calculator, add up to "trillions"? Just curious.

Maybe you can show me where CNN appears in this post:

A laughable endorsement of projected and modeled data, considering the automatic contempt and disdain for exactly such things that we see when the results don't happen to comport well with the unrecognizably distorted view of the world that those knee-jerk right-wing glasses impose.

Is it typed in with invisible internet ink?
A quote from saggy? What does that have to do with the CNN Money report?

Most of this debt was created by the conservative messiah George W Bush.

Rather than blaming Bush and the Republicans..let's hear what the current administration is doing to curtail the wild spending and mounting debt ? Bush is gone so he'll never fix it.

Who is in charge now ? Who needs to get this under control ?

Do you Dems plan to elect Bush in 2012 so he "can fix his mess" ?

I figure this will go unanswered because it can't involve blaming Bush.

I'm not going back to retrace the posts. Apparently, it's you who have difficulty reading.

Why would they want Bush's help if he created this $9 trillion debt? Unless of course they wanted to increase the debt, than Bush would be right man for the job.
