Except that it was a Republican that left us in this mess in the first place, decided that even though we were already headed towards recession that a $1 trillion+ war was just the thing we needed. Granted recovery's been slow, but trickle down economics is hardly going to be faster if it works at all (which has never been proven, only in the minds of Reagan-worshipers). Meanwhile, we have the unofficial American Pope in Paul Ryan trying to tell women what they can do with their own bodies, and offering a host of religious proclamations, despite the first amendment which right-wingers always seem to ignore, somehow thinking this is the Christian equivalent of Iran., including a Christian Hezbollah ie. the Tea Party.

I imagine that Bush is partly responsible for the bad economy but Obama has put it on steroids with his juvenile economic policies. It was the democrats who started the easy loans which resulted in the banking failure that wiped out the saving of thousands of Americans. I will vote for Romney, the businessman, not Obama the professional politician and grifter.

Congratulations; I don't think there's one significant canard you've missed.

Tomorrow, Thursday August 22, 2012, the United States of America will pass $16 trillion in debt. This number is inching closer to being larger than the entire U.S. economy. Today, the Congressional Budget Office released a report showing the federal government has posted a $1.1 trillion deficit for the fourth year in a row.

For fiscal year 2012 (which ends on September 30), the federal budget deficit will total $1.1 trillion, CBO estimates, marking the fourth year in a row with a deficit of more than $1 trillion. That projection is down slightly from the $1.2 trillion...
