Ronald Reagan, known as the supreme fiscal conservative.... /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/crazy.gif...inherited a 989 billion deficit, and left with a two trillion, nine hundred plus billion deficit

Our current deficit is still largely the deficit left by George Bush....but that is without factoring in Bush's on-going expenses for interest owed on the huge debts he ran up, or the costs of taking care of all the wounded soldiers, under his direction as Commander & Chief.

Great. Now the real question is just how high do you think Obama is going to drive these numbers. We are already up to our eyelids in debt and interest and your boy is trying to outspend everyone.

It doesn't matter. Since the republicans spent too much money, it is not perfectly acceptable, and even encouraged, for the democrats to see if they can out-spend the reps. After all, the Dems have a reputation to uphold!
