U.S. Debt Under Clinton Compared to Debt Under Bush

A reader sent us a link to a page on the United States Government website where you can calculate the public debt of the United States to the penny. We used this application to compare the debt incurred under the Clinton Administration to the debt incurred under the Bush Administration as of Friday, December 5, 2008.

As you can see from the graph below, Bubble-Boy wins this dubious honor. Under Bush the public debt of the United States has gone from 5.7 trillion to over 10 trillion in eight years. Folks, this is what happens when you combine reckless, radical, right-wing tax cuts with a Republican Congress who keeps funding their pet projects.

You can check out the actual numbers for both presidents to the penny by going here.

Well....I guess 9/11 was nothing...and I guess revamping the military who's spending was cut under Clinton didn't cost anything either....Clinton left a 138 billion dollar deficit to Bush....but....I guess thats all things we don't need to report
