The debt has increased because George Bush cut taxes to make himself popular and to benefit his rich friends. He also involved us in a costly and unnecessary war. Obama is trying to fix Bush's mistakes.
This is misinformed at best and dishonest at worst. Obama has, in his first 3 years, already spent
more than Bush did in 8 years. Obama has spent far more than Bush's tax cuts cost and more than the Iraq war cost. It's not even close. Now I may have an unfair advantage in that I am really good at math and I'm sure liberals think I should be taxed for it, but that's how it is.
And this is coming from a Ron Paul supporter who thinks we should bring all our troops home and close hundreds of bases around the world because we are broke. It's not like I'm a Bush fan and am not a Romney or Gingrich fan. I'm just somebody who looks at the facts and doesn't just support someone because of their political affiliation or the color of their skin.
