How does it prove that the majority of Obama haters are racist?
because they would never ask it of a WHITE man. but God forbid a non-white man run this country.
i presented the math in a prior post. do it and the answer is clear.
No, that just doesn't make any sense.
And frankly, the condescending tone of your post is beyond insulting.
i'm stating fact. sorry you don't like an unpopular truth, but it is what it is.
i already gave you reasons. you choose to ignore them and complain.
as for the other....
In 2001, President George W. Bush inherited a surplus, with projections by the Congressional Budget Office for ever-increasing surpluses, assuming continuation of the good economy and President Bill Clintonís policies. But every year starting in 2002, the budget fell into deficit.
In January 2009, just before President Obama took office, the budget office projected a $1.2 trillion deficit for 2009 and deficits in subsequent years, based on continuing Mr. Bushís policies and the effects of recession. Mr. Obamaís policies in 2009 and 2010, including the stimulus package, added to the deficits in those years but are largely temporary.
The second graph shows that under Mr. Bush, tax cuts and war spending were the biggest policy drivers of the swing from projected surpluses to deficits from 2002 to 2009. Budget estimates that didnít foresee the recessions in 2001 and in 2008 and 2009 also contributed to deficits. Mr. Obamaís policies, taken out to 2017, add to deficits, but not by nearly as much.
has Obama contributed to it? yea, seeing as his hands are tied and it's going to take years to deal with Bush's mess. so as they say, it's temporary. Bush
is the one who took Clinton's surplus and blew it. can't be any clearer than that.
He said BEFORE 9/11, so it IS the TRUTH.
Also, Obama did not just contribute to the national debt, be set an all-time record in raising the debt. Increasing the debt in record time and high is no way of "cleaning up Bush's mess." Bush may have burned a few acres, but Obama burned the entire countryside.
Proof? Here it is, and it isn't an evil conservative site either so it MUST be true

National debt has increased $4 trillion under Obama
By Mark Knoller Topics Economy
The latest posting by the Treasury Department shows the national debt has now increased $4 trillion on President Obama's watch.
The debt was $10.626 trillion on the day Mr. Obama took office. The latest calculation from Treasury shows the debt has now hit $14.639 trillion.
It's the most rapid increase in the debt under any U.S. president.
The national debt increased $4.9 trillion during the eight-year presidency of George W. Bush. The debt now is rising at a pace to surpass that amount during Mr. Obama's four-year term.
Of course, even in that story Obama blames EVERYONE
but himself for it.
Another FACT site:
> Ronald Reaganís First Term Ė $656 billion increase
> Ronald Reaganís Second Term Ė $1.036 trillion increase
> George H.W. Bushís Term Ė $1.587 trillion increase
> Bill Clintonís First Term Ė $1.122 trillion increase
> Bill Clintonís Second Term Ė $418 billion increase
> George W. Bushís First Term Ė $1.885 trillion increase
> George W. Bushís Second Term Ė $3.014 trillion increase
> Barack Obamaís First ďYearĒ Ė $1.573 trillion increase
But the fact remains that under basic economic measures, not phony ones, his record on the growth of the national debt is the worst of recent presidents.
This is all from OBAMA's speding spree, not Bush's.
