More semantics

Tonight on the O’Reilly Factor, Bill O’Reilly and Laura Ingraham are discussing the fact that the national debt increased more in Barack Obama’s 3.5 years in office than it did in GW Bush‘s 8 years in office. Big deal. Bush got off the down elevator as the economy began its plunge into the Great Recession. Barack inherited the mess that Bush created, and the GOP have opposed almost all his efforts to turn the tide. As that great economist Dick Cheney said, deficits don’t matter, at least in the short run. The ONLY time deficits and the debt matter is when the GOP is trying to scare the voters into turning a Democrat out of office and replacing him/her with a Republican.

    • The numbers they used were about $5.1 trillion for Obama and $4.9 trillion for Bush. Just statistics used to prove a point. I contend that statistics are the last refuge of scoundrels.
