That is seriously screwed up. In pointing this out the response I got was a head scratching.
But, George Bush spent lots of money! To me this is like saying, "Wow, having my finger cut off hurt" and someone responding. "Oh yeah? My friend got a paper cut!"
Yeah Bush 41 did over spend. Yes, the congress was enabling this expenditure. Guess what? We the people voted them all the hell out. As a Republican I find myself defending GW, despite him not being anywhere near the President I would have wanted. I suppose it is akin to living in New Jersey and being an NBA fan.
