    Well, if I look at actual historic facts, I find that the big increases in deficit and detbt came during the regime of St. Reagan (let’s cut taxes for the wealthy and spend more money) and the Bush dynasty (let’s cut taxes further and launch a few wars on credit). The Clinton years saw a shrinking deficit, leading to an actual surplus the last year, and predictions that if things were not changed (which, of course, they were by Dubya) we’d zero out the national debt by 2010. Obama inherited a collapsed economy and a huge deficit, which he’s been steadily reducing.


    But don’t let any of these facts get in the way of your Faux Snooze talking points…

    It takes money to repair damage. Reagan had to rebuild the military that Carter had gutted. Reagan’s numbers are also damaged by the inflationary overhang of Carter’s spending, which meant that each $14 three years into Reagan’s administration was equivalent to $10 of Carter’s.

    The 2008 economic collapse was due entirely to Democrat home loan policies that Bush’s attempts to repeal were thwarted.

    As for Obama reducing the deficit, you are relying on people not distinguishing deficit from debt. Bush’s last year included his fantastically ignorant bailout schemes, which were meant to be a one-time thing. Tyrant Obama may be reducing the deficit from that last year’s level, but the total debt is still floating into the stratosphere. It is easy to end the deficit immediately: don’t spend money today. Tomorrow, next day, etc.: do the same thing.
