      I don't believe that they are covering the expenses of the 2 wars that Bush didn't put into his budget, nor the big medicare give-away, and the tax break for the rich.

        I think there's plenty of blame to go around. I hold Bush partially responsible, but I agree with WaPo's findings that when Obama places 90% of the blame on W, the POTUS is being dishonest. Romney and Obama have both told some whoppers, and both have been admonished by WaPo fact-checkers.

          Agreed, that one was definitely a lie or at best a pretty dumb mistake which is disappointing, it's been a long time since we had a candidate or president who wasn't disappointing in my view. *sigh*

            Oh, I sooooo totally agree! "Honest Abe" is surely spinning in his grave.

    Very good point:

    From OP link


    Now one could argue, as Obama’s defenders do, that his policies to combat the recession were intended to be temporary. But he has also supported permanently extending the Bush tax cuts for Americans making less than $250,000, which by itself will shrink federal revenues for years to come. That means these are no longer Bush’s tax cuts, but Obama’s.

      So now we are against tax cuts, but only for those making under $250,000? It's hard to keep up.

        I am not against the tax cuts.  Obama needs to take responsibility for continuing them, it is a good thing, why is he ashamed?

        Does he just have a natural tendency to avoid responsibility for his actions, then to take responsibility for the actions of others?

        Those tax cuts can no longer be called the Bush tax cuts, doing so would be a falsehood.
