    I don't understand how people can be so blind and stupid as to believe that our current debt ALL just dropped out of the sky on us since Obama was elected. This mess didn't just start on January 20, 2009.

      But that date is when the "after burner" kicked in and the debt rocket really took off.

    President Bush that put an end to the shuttle program, mmmkay?
    Much as people would love to lay that in Obama's lap, they need to lay it in the lap of the man who deserves it.
