Making 'Em Look Like Pikers

Let's face the hard, cold facts of life: eight years of George W. Bush and six of a GOP-controlled Congress left the GOP reputation for fiscal responsibility in tatters.

After all, by 2008, the Federal deficit was running at an all-time high of nearly half a trillion dollars.

Well, President Barry is better than GWB, as virtually every one knows. So his first-year deficit? Four times President Bush's, coming in at nearly $1.8 trillion dollars.

So the next time some Democrat starts lecturing about GOP fiscal irresponsibility, it might be wise to have that little statistic handy.
