"The national debt increased $4.9 trillion during the eight-year presidency of George W. Bush."

What did we get there?

Not that I'm defending any increase to the national debt, but Bush fought two wars (that Democrats voted for), the economy was much better, and it was over 8 years, vs 3.

We'll never know. For every graphic like that, there is one that is the opposite. We general public have no way of knowing which is true as all our sources of information have an agenda somewhere.

I believe some of that is true. Some is false. It's why I listen to conservative talk radio every day but get a lot of info from online and mainstream media. Get all the info and pick out the truths the best I can.

When you only listen to one point of view, you close yourself off to other perspectives.

Another reason why I am Independent.

It would be nice if the community organizer wouldn't take credit for Bush's accomplishments.

It's like a relief pitcher, coming in bottom of the inning with two outs, taking credit for winning the game.

Republicans pin all of Bush's failures on him too though.

Good analogy. But if he comes in with the bases are loaded when he gives up the homerun to the first batter. Those first 3 runs go to the pitcher that left the game.
