Bush was a Bigger Spender and Borrower than Obama

Republicans hate facts. That's why they ignore things like this.

Federal spending ('outlays' in budget jargon) is expected to equal 24.1 percent of the nation's gross domestic product in the current fiscal year, which ends Sept. 30. The figure was 25 percent in fiscal year 2009, highest since 1945.
The U.S. is borrowing about 36 cents of every dollar spent so far this year. It borrowed 37 cents on the dollar last year, and 40 cents in fiscal 2009.

Fiscal 2009, in case you're factually challenged, was George W. Bush's budget.

George W. Bush Has a Rich History of Symbolic Gestures

I can't think of a better metaphor (for their unwavering feeling of self-satisfaction despite 8 years of disaster capitalism that Cheney, Inc., unleashed on America) than George W Bush, along with thousands of his fellow Texans, setting the world record for most people wearing sunglasses at night.

Every senior member of the warmongering, economy wrecking, environment poisoning "administration" that ran amok after Cheney's coronation--by the five crooked conservative justices of the Supreme Court--should be arrested and sitting in the Hague for war crimes. That their deranged, vicious mascot can sit in the dark and surround himself with more dark is testament to his will to spend every last day of his life not feeling guilty for this shit.

Anyone who has not yet apologized for their support of George W. Bush should be ashamed of themselves.  I'm sure you'll trip over something (WMD?) in that self-imposed darkness soon enough.
