They create a huge deficit then blame the Democrats who try to fix it.

Think, What’s ridiculous about your argument is that during this point during Obama’s presidency was the worst economic recession since the Great Depression (which began under Bush’s final years). Obama’s presidency saw the deficit decline by the billions starting in 2012. Since trump took office, the estimated deficit has ballooned despite us having a good economy (great according to trump.) It’s in poor taste for you to be touting that trump is doing better with the deficit than Obama; when during this time in O’s first term we were suffering through a recession that was of no fault of his own while also pretending that Trump is making the deficit go down (which he isn’t doing despite us having a good economy -great if you ask Tump himself)

Lunch ... I get that you feel the need to repeat the Obama lies, but please know that we all lived thru it and know those lies.

MrO grew the national debt by more than ALL 43 presidents before him. This is an irresponsible reaction to the Great Recession, which was caused by reprehensible actions from Democrats. The recession was caused by Barney Franks Community Redevelopment Act, which allowed community organizers like the Nimwhit MrO to weaponize hate groups like ACORN to terrorize bankers, forcing them to write loans to credit unworthy borrowers who could never repay those loans.

Lunch ... I get that you want to harp on the reductions in the deficit as a way to avoid the fact that MrO grew the debt. He pathetically tried to take credit for reducing the rate of growth of the deficit.

Those assertions are simply hollow attempts to deflect from the truth that MrO exploded the debt.

Think, How is Thatguy wrong? Why isn’t the tea party protesting Trump’s massive deficit increases? How can you support the omnibus spending bill Trump signed last year which was Obama-esque in its scale?

If you support this massive spending the only logical conclusion is you have no actual core principles. You are merely a partisan hack. That’s the only possible explanation for your utter hypocrisy with regard to the national debt.

Omni ... it is the rate of growth that matters. Only low info leftists would have expected that the debt would shrink on day one. The debt is a problem, and I wish the Tax Enough Already crew were still active, because there is SO much more that needs to happen. I still advocate for the complete elimination of Mr Carter’s unconstitutional debacle, the federal Dept of Ed, and deep cuts within many other departments, including slashing of the HHS budget.

MrT isn’t perfect, but he’s doing MUCH better than the irresponsible MrO. The military was allowed to decay during the disgustingly dark Obama years, and MrT has rebuilt it. That’s huge.

I think MrT had to focus on fixing the Obama mess, and I hope he turns the corner and focuses on slashing departments now that the deadwood civil SERVANTS would have no excuses because there are plenty of jobs in the real world for them to take.

Wow you’re even more out of touch than I thought, Think!

“Only low info leftists would have expected that the debt would shrink on day one.”

Luckily that doesn’t describe me. Knowing we have two big govt parties, I didn’t expect anything but an increase in debt. I just didn’t expect it to grow so explosively! Spending was up 17% in FY 2018!! It has ACCELERATED in the last two years! If you care about the debt you can’t be okay with that!

“... it is the rate of growth that matters.”

I’m not sure if you mean the growth of debt or economic growth. The debt has been growing at $1 trillion per year. Do you have any idea how much that is and how much economic growth would be needed to offset that? It’s not mathematically possible in the current reality.

“I wish the Tax Enough Already crew were still active”

It’s funny how they disappeared right? Once big spending Obama got replaced by big spending Trump they just vanished. They said they weren’t partisan though, so it must just be a coincidence. πŸ™„

But this is how national debt grows so fast... each party enables it when they have the power, just like you’re doing right now. It’s important to remember that presidents don’t create debt, We The People do. Presidents don’t write the checks; the Congress holds the purse strings and they represent us. This falls on the citizens, not the president.

Thatguy: That is laughable. The recession was caused by Barney frank the banking queen (with bill clintons community reinvestment act), exacerbated by what every business owner knew was coming when Obama was seen as going to win the election. And then further exacerbated by his actions in office and the quantitative “easing” that hurt our country (basically we never took our medicine).

Ozzy ... you forget that it was MrO, the arrogant attorney from Chicago, who as a “community organizer” was instrumental in training hate groups like the now disbanded ACORN to terrorize bankers to force them to write loans to credit unworthy minority borrowers. This was the genesis of the financial crisis.

So, MrO helped to create the crisis, using Princess Barney’s Community Reinvestment Act, and then it was MrO that made the crisis FAR worse — deeper and longer — because of the mountain of new business
-hating regulations that he foisted on the nation. MrO successfully pushed businesses to keep their international gains offshore thereby crippling growth and filling the country with low-paying temp jobs with no benefits. Now that the dawn has come, and we have a somewhat responsible adult back in the Oval Office, business is booming and the pay are repatriating those hundreds of billions of dollars and creating high paying long term jobs with benefits.
