Bush Deficit vs. Obama Deficit – This Picture Doesn’t Lie

We could lay out number after number and make your eyes glaze over but many times when done accurately a picture tells a 1,000 words. So below is a nice graph depicting the Bush deficit vs. Barack Hussein Obama’s deficit.

By the way – the numbers above do include spending on Iraq and Afghanistan during the Bush years. It should be noted that Bush and Obama share responsibility for the FY 2009 budget deficit that overlaps their administrations, before Obama assumes full budgetary responsibility beginning in FY 2010.

Overall, President Obama’s budget would add twice as much debt as President Bush over the same number of years. Twice for now, as the infomercial oftens say, “But wait, there’s more.” Indeed!
