Sarah -- Not only can you not count, you don't appear to understand what "good governing" is. On the first point, GWB racked up 4 trillion in additional debt over his 8 years. Obama has already increased the national debt by 5 trillion in 4 years. And Obama called GWB "unpatriotic" for his profligacy. What do you call Obama and his even worse profligacy? Second, it isn't the number of bills passed that makes a Congress effective - it's what those bills and policies actually DO to the citizens! If those bills restrict freedom and liberty, then I don't want them to pass ANY bills.
