1) Pres. Clinton, who left his successor a budgetary surplus
2) Pres. Obama, only in office for 5 months.

He inherited an incredible economic trainwreck, that saw Pres. Bush's last year in office (2008) come in second only to 1945 (end of the manufacturing for WWII) in job LOSSES. Heck'uva year Brown...I mean George.


Reality is Bush burned down everything, leaving everything to be rebuilt.

So Obama will fix the deficit by increasing it? Nice logic.

Unfortunately, its necessary, but the good thing is capital investment in this country to curtail a recession/depression is also much needed anyway.

How much $ did the Bush Admin. devote to the United States of America as being in charge of policy? For Gods sake, they were asleep at the wheel when a major American city was drowning, even though there was at least a WEEK to prepare.

That summed up their administration and their 8 years, perfectly, their response to that storm.

Be happy they haven't started a needless war of choice based on guesses?

Please receive an education in economics before you defend the policies of an administration that criticize the prior administration but are doing the same thing only exponentially.

it's not surprising that Obama admin has been unsuccessful jumpstarting employment. These people think massive government and healthcare are the keys to getting economy back on track.

the history of the world shows that indivudual freedom (not massive controlling government) are keys to economic success and freedom.

they're trying to politicize a bad a economy and it's backfiring badly

That is why it is not unpatriotic to root for the policies of this administration to fail miserably. Yes we will have to endure short term pain but in the long run we will be better off.

Although it is probably too late since the debt and deficits will be at historic record levels for a long time.

the sooner everyone realizes these policies are disasters, the better. We need to move on
