But you're new guy Obama is the most mindblowingly fiscally irresponsible President this country has ever seen.

Looks like a black or white statement you've made there. Too bad its just plain wrong.

Cutting taxes on the rich while financing two wars off the books means that award goes to his predecessor. The current president is just trying to clean up the mess.

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federal_deficit#Recent_additions_to_the_public_debt_of_the_United_States

FY2009 $1785.6 billion 12.5% GDP
FY2010 $1471.0 billion (est.)10.0% GDP

We are now in FY2011, FY2009 budget began Oct 1 2008, A few weeks before the "most mindblowingly fiscally irresponsible President this country has ever seen" was elected.

As long as we're going to reinvent the wheel again, we might as well try making it round this time. - Mike Dennison
