Really? that's strange because the debt history shows that the US debt has risen every single year since 1977 and probably going back to 1870. . .
Going all the way back to the Revolutionary War, actually. You're talking about the debt, though. The person you're replying to was talking about the deficit. They're connected, but they're different. The budget was balanced (no deficit) under Clinton. This was partly due to him and partly due to Congress (who is, after all, supposedly responsible for telling the president how much money he can spend). The debt increased in absolute terms, but much slower than it had for a long time (i.e., it didn't accelerate), and it actually decreased relative to GDP (for the first time since Carter). Under Bush, IIRC, there was so much deficit that the debt increased in absolute terms about three times as fast as under Clinton, and became a much larger share of GDP (though I don't remember how much).
Your chart shows the debt increase under Obama (2008 through 2010) as about $3.6 trillion, and about $46 trillion under Bush (2000 through 2008). Obama's rate so far is therefore approximately $1.7T increase per year, and Bush's was $7T. The biggest jumps under Bush were the last two years, of course, when Washington decided that the people who almost destroyed the economy needed to be rewarded by the rest of us. But even if we subtract that $3T and those two years, the increase is still over $6T per year.
(Of course neither of them had any actual effect in the year he was elected, but the data from the chart aren't fine-grained enough to allow us to remove the three-month gap.)
Both sides of the aisle are a bunch of Elitist millionaires who make a habit of exempting themselves from the very laws they impose on the rest of us.
I can certainly agree with the sentiment behind this.
I distrust all of them until such time. . .
I'd say we should never stop distrusting people who desire, and get, that much power.
