U.S. Debt increase: Reagan 189%, Bush1 55%, Bush2 115%

Which of our last five Presidents increased the U.S. debt the most?

Ronald Reagan – 189% U.S. debt increase from Jan 1981 – Jan 1989
George H. W. Bush – 55% from Jan 1989 – Jan 1993
Bill Clinton – 37% Jan 1993 – Jan 2001
George W. Bush – 115% from Jan 2001 – Jan 2009
Barak Obama – 16% from Jan 2009 – May 2011

Three Republicans increased the debt 359% in 20 years while two Democrats increased it 53% in 11 years.

Republicans increased the debt 696% faster than the Democrats.

Or on a yearly basis, Republicans screwed us with a 18.5% yearly increase while the Democrats overspent 4.8% per year.

The Republicans are hypocrites who run for office promising less government and a balanced budget, yet every time they get in they run up the debt and increase government.

Plus every time they get power they use it to attack women’s rights, non-whites, and any oil producing country.

Republicans also murder a LOT more brown-skinned people worldwide than do their Democratic brethren.

I find the Democrats to be criminal, cowardly, and crooked . . . but the Republican politicians and pundits and preachers make them look positively angelic.

Why is anyone even listening to these liars anymore? Republicans belong in jail, not government.

Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, Simple-minded Santorum and Ron Paul should be applying for Clown School, not the Presidency of the U.S.

Indict a Republican for Christ.

National Debt

Huddled beneath behind
Green metal stalls
The tile encrusted
Yellow, he sews an
Empty money bag
To his crotch, watches
His reflection mirrored
In regimented urinals
   five six seven
Decaying down the wall
Cradling his existence
Fraying five to seven
In staid erotic fear
Small spider woven
Through uninforming ears
Tired of heaven he sews
His money to his crotch
He huddles

— Smith, 1971

    I thought Clinton was the first president in the while to get us into the black only for old W to put us back in again? Am I remembering wrong? Or perhaps mixing up facts?
