President Bush spent a lot during his presidency. What did he spend it on? The aforementioned 2 wars and the costliest natural disaster in America’s history (Katrina). But he also spent money on America's response to 9/11, the creation of a massive new government agency (the Department of Homeland Security), the creation of the TSA, the creation of the bipartisan multi-billion dollar “No Child Left Behind” program, and “an open-ended, non-means-tested” massive new government entitlement program (prescription drug plan for seniors) which was “the biggest expansion of federal entitlements since Medicare itself.”
All of that spending added up over 8 years.
Barack Obama spent more than all of that – in less than half the time.
When President Obama claims that he’s fiscally responsible, everyone sees him for what he is: the Spending Czar.
We are not laughing with you, Mr. President. We are laughing at you.
And, on November 6, we will have the last laugh.
