Meanwhile all he's really done is spend more then we have ever seen before. We thought Bush not fiscally conservative, hell Clinton now looks the most fiscally conservative of them all lol!!!.
Obama setting a whole new standard for spending and what has it got him?
At least the tarp package Bush put together ended up working. The stimulus did nothing.
Bush's tax cuts and his wars in Iraq will have cost tax payers 7-11 trillion dollars before its all said and done. Bush's Iraq war was never budgeted period. Over the last 8 years the Bush Admin. continued the Reagan-Bush tax cuts, were caught with their pants down and watched as the most lethal terrorist attacks ever on U.S. soil, the invasion of Iraq on dubious grounds, the near destruction of one of our most storied cities and, finally, the Wall Street and real estate meltdown.
