Oh, And While We’re On The Subject of The Age of Obamarius

And the “necessity” of raising the debt ceiling so we can continue to pay off Ogabe’s brownshirt union thugs, take a look at the graph over at Patterico’s site.

Never mind the “debt passes $14,000,000,000,000” bit, just please note that said debt has increased by $5,000,000,000,000 since 2008 which was two years after the DemCong took over from the Bush Administration’s “irresponsible spending.”

We remind you again that the DemCong have been holding the federal purse strings since 2006, NOT since 2008 when they “inherited” the mess.

If you’re unemployed, go find a Democrat and thank him. Preferably by jamming a rusty saw wrapped in razor wire up his arse. Then slap him on the cheek to make him spin.

Thatisall.

P.S.: If you want a graph going a little further back, here’s one.

The ones with functional synapses might notice that said debt graph started rising rather dramatically in 2007. What’s significant about 2007? Well, that would be the first year that the federal budget was passed by a DemCong majority.

Discuss and, for those of you still waiting for the penny to drop, please report back to Kindergarten.

The jump at the end of your second graph looks like what happens when a functional alchoholic develops a full blown gambling and cocaine addiction.

I’m not convinced Misha, the argument your making is that while the Republicans spent like drunken sailors on a 3 days pass the Dems spent like drunken sailors on a whole month of block leave. I’m sorry but wrong is wrong and it doesn’t matter if the overspending is 100 Billion or 1 Trillion that is still money that has… Read more »

I beg to differ. As a former drunken sailor, I would quit spending when I ran out of money. :em03:

You didn’t have a credit card? But I see your point.

OK, I’m in “moderation” once again. Ah, Happy New Year! Anyway, offa the top o’ my head, a few quotes from my favorite author: “Moderation is for fools. Live life to the fullest.” “You can have peace. Or you can have freedom. Don’t ever count on having both at once.” “Political tags – such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist,… Read more »

Response to Emperor Misha I @: Actually, the argument that I was trying to make was that it takes only five minutes with a graph to realize that the current mess wasn’t “inherited.” What was inherited was a mess, you won’t find me in support of very many of Dubya’s spending binges and I spent quite a bit of time… Read more »

Time, well past time, really, to dust off our copies of “Take Back Your Government” by RAH (with intro by Jerry Pournelle; c. 1992, Baen Publishing).

Nah, no credit cards. I figured the annual fees and interest payments would cut into my drinking. The credit cards showed up right after the wife did.

Back when I was a drunken sailor, when we ended up broke the day after payday, we called it spending like a Congressman. :em03:
