"Bush is NOT being fiscally irresponsible!!!!!"

The White House estimated on January 25, 2005 that the U.S. budget deficit for 2005, including an extra $80 billion for Iraq and Afghanistan operations, will total $427 billion.  (Reuters Graphic)







Now, in his defense, he probably doesn't understand these complicated graphs, but basically here's what it says:

From 1992-2000 (every year Clinton was in office) the defict shrunk by billions and billions of dollars until the last 3 years President Clinton was in office when we had a *big gasp everyone* 236 BILLION DOLLAR SURPLUS!


Enter Bush. The surplus shrink drastically (and if one more person blames it on 9/11 I swear....) and continues to go down every year the Bush is in office. Now look what we're stuck with. My bet is next year will be even worse.

The most amazing thing is that it is extremely rare for a western nation to be in a surplus situation. For some reason that escapes me, we the rich western countries are always in deficit.

Clearly either Clinton was a very bright economist or he knew how to surround himself with such ppl.

As to Bush... the pic speaks for itself.
