    "48 quarters of economic growth"

    In this country?

    The last Bush directed surge put 250,000 troops in Iraq. That's a little more than the 50,000 you are claiming.

    Also, keep in mind we had ZERO troops in Iraq before our last Republican President.

    Also, Obama added over $10 trillion dollars to the debt?

    Go on!

    Date, time, source please.


    I didn't think so.

    Irony Guy--Ten trillion to seventeen trillion. How is that shrinking the deficit?

    What growth are you talking about?

    We still have fifty thousand troops in Iraq-(USA Today), with Afghanistan still in high gear.

    Obama has added more then twice the amount of money to the debt then Bush did.

    President Bush presided over huge war deficits and an economic collapse. President Obama has overseen 48 quarters of economic growth, the end of Iraq war, and a shrinking deficit. I for one am very happy we're not going back to the Bush approach to governing.

    Regan tripled the national debt.

    W. Bush doubled the national debt.

    Obama has factually done neither, so why are people complaining about the debt when Obama is President?

    Obama says the possibilities for America are endless. I guess he was referring to our national debt?

    Just replace congress with executive orders, and the fight is over.
