I did a quick calculation based on Bush's deficit spending and addition to the National Debt in his 8 years in office [$5Trillion].
If you take the same amount of deficit spending [which the NeoCons were perfectly OK with during the Bush administration, so it must be good] and add the $5Trillion in Interest on JUST Republican deficit spending [R,R,B1,B2,B2] then the Obama projections really comes in at $700Billion LESS than Bush in a two year longer time frame.
I LOVE this kind of fuzzy math.
Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
