Schnizel, you have to admit that Bush threw Obama into all that debt
and the crash didn't help either

not to mention congress sets the budget not the president

A slightly more accurate view of the situation.

My paint skills are literally off the charts.

If you expand the field of view, you can see that debt levels have little to do with the party affiliation of those in power. Blaming the economy on the president is easy and convenient, but it doesn't tell the whole story.

I'm not defending Obama's economic policies here. Or Bush's for that matter, though they aren't that different.

Just to put this in perspective, you could spend a million dollars a day, since Jesus was born (or the year 0 or whatever) till today and not spent a trillion dollars

I notice this doesn't take into consideration the debt other countries owe the U.S.

You have to spend money to make money.. Also, the debt crisis has been going on for years, and it will take years before it ever gets remotely close to normal.

There's no point in bitching about it.

money is not the goal; production is the goal

Notice how the debt decreases faster during bush's terms in office and how Obama is starting to curve it to be more level.

Idiots still think that Obama is the reason why the debt is so high
#144 - trollmobile ONLINE (10/22/2013) [-]
well, at least the rate at which the debt is increasing, is dropping.
it's turning around
however very slowly
under bush, the rate was increasing.

How is the usa still a super power?
User avatar #115 to #21 - Ruspanic (10/22/2013) [-]
-strongest military in the world
-largest economy in the world
-strong global military presence and network of alliances
-major nuclear power
-world leader in technological innovation
-US dollar is the global reserve currency
-English is the language of global commerce
-dominant culture of globalization
-most populous developed country in the world, 3rd largest population overall
-massive consumer of foreign goods
-muscle behind the UN and NATO
-largest dispenser of foreign aid
-etc, etc

Debt isn't a very important determinant of global power. Compared to our GDP (roughly 16 trillion USD), our national debt isn't even the worst among developed countries. Japan's national debt is 2x its GDP, for example.
Also, most of our debt is owed to Americans, not foreign countries.

i dont go in for politics too much, but to me this graph is just showing an inevitable exponential curve. not saying this is ok or who dun what wrong, just to me it looks like a "natural" progression.
