De-Bushing Romney

This is why Obama constantly talks about “inheriting” all of this debt from Bush. And that’s true. Obama did inherit a deficit when he came into office. Why this fact justifies racking up vastly more debt and bigger deficits is a logical mystery.

In the last four years we’ve added $6.3 trillion in federal debt, with $5 trillion of it fully on Obama’s watch. In 2008, debt held by the public was 40.5 percent of GDP. It’s now 74.2 percent and growing.

In short, Romney needs to say that when it comes to spending and the growth of government, it’s Obama who’s closer to “Bush on steroids.”
