You are, again, forming an opinion based on flawed data.

Bush was not a conservative.

Next wrong headed position?

Bush, Cheney, Rice, Rumsfeld, Greenspan, destroyed America.

We are still trying to recover from the "Conservative" attack on our nation.

"I WOULD NEVER VOTE FOR A REPUBLICAN!"

The worst president in history, which we predicted all along.

Only Liberals can save the nation from the RW destruction of Constitutional Rights!

Collective Bargaining Rights, now their focus, just one more tenent of Democracy., thhey want to destroy, if they haven't already destroyed our Democracy, with their lies, activist RW Judges, who have all but removed the separation of church and state.

Why do Republicans hate FREEDOM?

Bush certainly was in the GOP. Most conservatives are in the GOP. The GOP supported his policies in lock step, as did Fox News, the alleged conservative media voice.

LOL, every mess that Republicans make, is redefined as liberal.

Every crook on the right, is called a Liberal.

Denialists extraordinaire! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif Republicans have been building deficits for decades, so the right has to rename them, lol, I call it Rebonics, lol.

Most conservatives see the GOP as the leftist party and the democrats as the moonbat crazy leftist party.

Am I misreading the graph. It fails to take into account that spending levels are going to continue to exceed both TARP and the Stimulus measures.

Also it assumes that some sort of strong recovery will begin at some point.

Not to mention that Taxes are the peoples money and if government spending had been reined in accordance to the tax cuts much of the problems created by the government would have been avoided.

However the problem problems with Soc Sec, Medicare and Medicaid would still exist.
