All in all, George Bush took an actual sur*plus of $127 billion in 2001, and turned it into a deficit of $319 bil*lion in 2005.
The concept of an actual surplus is the largest problem with your argument Mikeyy......


That number never existed to begin with.......


Try a new angle with some more reliable numbers and we can kick that around a little.......

I just heard (on the way home) Roger Hedgecock say Obama's trying to create a "crony capitalist" regime. And I thought, wait a minute, I thought he was a "socialist"? I swear, the right waffles more than IHOP!

What's he going to be next month, an "altrustic totalitarian"?

If you have to ask, then you're not really paying attention.

Tax cuts are not spending. Tax cuts let people keep their own money to spend as they wish.
