As an addendum to my piece on the main site, I thought it would be worthwhile to compare Bush’s fiscal record to the CBO’s projections of the next 10 years, should Obama’s budget get passed. Remember, Obama called the Bush administration, “the most fiscally irresponsible administration in history.” The first chart, which comes from the Washington Post, looks at suprluses/deficits from 2000 to 2019, while the second chart (created by yours truly) looks at the public debt from 2001-2019. This is by no means meant to absolve Bush, who deserves our contempt for his reckless fiscal policies, but to demonstrate how much worse Obama is making things.
