|JUST THE FACTS MAAM|
George W. Bush created nearly 7 trillion dollars in new debt for the deficit, and President Obama has created 1.7 trillion (including the bailout).
In 2001 George W. Bush projected a 5.9 trillion dollar surplus through 2011! When in reality, George W. Bush actually created a nearly 6 trillion dollar deficit. Talk about missing the mark.
