Debt and Deficit in Historical Perspective
Now I’m not a fan of Obama, but, considering this chart he’s not holding the greatest debt in the history of mankind, as some conservatives are pointing out.
Honestly though, I really don’t get the Republican Party sometimes. When it comes to managing the economy and the American Empire in general the Democratic Party seems to play it a lot smarter. The Republicans, if they know what’s good for them, need to just shut the fuck up cause Obama is the best thing that could happen for Washington D.C. No huge animostiy toward the president, no protests in the street, the fractured left is having a hard time rallying people against the war and bailouts, etc.
