    Don’t they come out with that issue every 4 years?

    Yup, go cut some brush while the country is engaged in the two wars you started, and you never “cleaned house” on the guy you were supposed to be sweeping up.


    Mitt can give us more of that, while he stores his cars because he won’t be driving them if he gets in, and starts MORE wars, and bankrupts the nation with incomes under the top 1%.

    Continental drift politically. Mittens will proudly produce all that Bushite mess swept under the rug, and crow about it. Billionaires and millionaires rejoice.

    And if feeling energetic, one day he’ll also close down Social Security so he can pocket the money, you know it just isn’t going to be solvent forever and fixing the problems is just too much work and no profit for the businessman billionaire. Businessman, such a generic term.

    One of the reasons the U.S. debt and deficit are as high as they are now (compared to 2001-2008) is that under GWB the cost of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq simply never got put into the books. Obama changed that, and now the GOP is attacking him for being the better housekeeper by doing so. Hypocrites!

    Well, the total cost of the wars from 2003 to 2008 (yes, I know we kicked off in 2001) was (direct appropriations) $755’ish billion. If you figure the entire cost of the wars to date, according to Brown University, you’re looking at around 3-4 trillion. Over 10 years. So let’s average that out to 400 billion a year. That means in the 7 years of war over which Bush presided (2001-2008), you’re talking 2.8 trillion. That makes his grand total deficit over 8 years of being in office to about 7.8 trillion (or about 900 billion deficit per year).

    And let’s exclude adding that 400 billion per year to Obama’s tally, because he’s being “so honest,” he’s still looking at an annual pace of spending at 1.5 trillion per year (4.7 trillion added from 2/09 to 2/12). Carry that out over 8 years, and you’re looking at 12 trillion in new debt, or 40% higher than Bush. And no budget analysis has Obama’s spending leveling off and financial outlays being reduced.

    So… yeah. We can criticize Obama and the democrats for their spending binge, because they took what Bush did and turned it into an art form! He’s the hypocrite for griping about the debt and then hammering down on the gas.

    We are only 4 to 8 years from total meltdown.

    I would have to assume the Mayan calender only could see till ‘THE END OF DAYS’. I am thinking that we will only have seven years to see and feel G-D’s JUDGEMENT on all mankind.

    In that case we won’t need survival rations.
