Debt Added by Obama vs Debt Added by Bush
I compared the last 4 (four) years of Bush to the first 2 (two) years and 10(ten) months of Obama. First you will see the total debt added by each for the time periods above. Then you will see what it is average per month during those periods.
Bush 4 years = Jan. 9. 2009 = 10.6 Trillion total
Bush start of last 4 years = Jan. 9 2005 = 7.6 Trillion total
Obama start of last 2 years and 10 months = 10.6 Trillion total
Obama Nov. 9 2011 = 15.04 Trillion total
Bush 4 years added 3.0 Trillion
Obama 2 years 10 months added 4.4 Trillion total
Bush aded an average of 0.0625 Trillion a month
Obama added 0.1219 Trillion a month
So the facts are that Obama is adding debt to the USA deficit at a rate twice as fast as Bush. Now people of the Obama camp have blamed Bush for all this. But after almost 3 years, two of which the Democrat party had total control (President, Senate and House), it is wearing pretty thin as a continuing excuse.
