Obama: the buck stops with Bush
January 28, 2010 1 Comment
I was reading Democrats’ talking points for the State of the Union speech. And I found this:
“Senate Democrats want to clean up this fiscal mess, inherited from the last Administration, in order to avoid the economic catastrophe that would be created if the United States defaulted on our debt.”
Actually, dear Democrats, the blaming Bush game, no longer works. Just see what happened in Massachusetts. Besides, President Bush actually reduced the deficit from 412 billion in 2004 to 162 billion in 2007, despite the 2000 recession, 9/11 and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
And see how YOU Democrats are adding to the deficit: Stimulus, the trillion-dollar health care bill (that is dead, but you wanted it, and I won’t forget that), the creation of golf courses in towns with more cows than people, and the pork bills…)
