1. About half of them yelling the loudest voted for both Bush tax cuts, both Bush

wars, and unfunded Medicare Part D, which together added about $9 trillion over 10 years.

7. Disagree somewhat.

Debt is worse when it's from a black Dem president, but it's totally AWFUL no matter who the Dem is. Repugs spend the country's money on the rich, so that's perfectly OK.

8. This is great!!!

I love how Paul Ryan is one of the darlings of the Tea Party and far-right - yet he voted for the two Bush tax cuts, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Medicare Part D, and TARP.

Plus, what many right-wingers either don't realize or don't want to realize is that a great deal of the spending that has taken place under President Obama has been a direct result of a continuation of what started under the Bush administration - (i.e. the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, Medicare and Medicaid spending growths, etc.)

Ironic how there were no instances of a Republican decrying the national debt before the date of January 20, 2009.
