Seriously! I searched hard for a person who works in the government who is fiscally responsible. Paid "trainings" (really vacations), cars, etc. There are no board of directors to scrutinize your spending. They can just call the cost something else to warrant the spending. It's sick and disgusting and too many Americans refuse to question or do anything about it.

That's pretty intellectually dishonest. When you look at growth in the "deficit" rather than "debt" you're ignoring everything that happened in the middle years of the timeframe you're talking about (in this case 2010-2014). It would sort of be like saying "I didn't gain any weight in 2009, or in 2015, so I don't have a weight problem" ignoring the fact that you put in 50 pounds a year in the 5 years in between and are now obese. Sorry, that doesn't fit on a meme.

You might be confused about the difference between deficit and debt. The deficit is just the amount of money the government borrows in one particular year. The debt is the total amount of money the government owes. The deficit may have gone down during Obama's tenure simply because it is now smaller than it was during Bush's last year, but he has added more money to the debt than Bush, or any other president in history, so thus the original meme is valid.

Who is "we"? That's really a shallow way to look at it. To look at just the deficit is to only pay attention to the first and last years of a president's time in office and ignore everything that came in between. The deficit is lower now than when Obama took office, but he added a historic amount to the debt in between, so there's no logical standard through which to call him "fiscally responsible".

And no, the debt doesn't go up no matter what. If you're a fiscally responsible president and have balanced budgets and surpluses it goes down. If you have small deficits THROUGHOUT your time in office (not just in the first and last years which you're assigning an arbitrary amount of significance to) it only goes up a little bit. If you're fiscally irresponsible like Bush/Obama it goes up by something like 4 (Bush) or 9 (Obama) trillion dollars.

See the reply to your other ignorance above. You're still politically and now, economically retarded. What next are you going to show your stupidity? In that, you excel.

Deficit is, and I quote, "an excess of expenditure or liabilities over income or assets in a given period." Debt is, and I quote (again), "something, typically money, that is owed or due."

Which shovel ready job helped cut unemployment. Where was the 800 billion spent, and How much more in taxes did those workers pay in taxes than they earned.

I'm so tired of hearing you blow the same trumpet about the "Obama Recovery". He had the lowest bar in history set for him. So did he still try to bring his a-game? No, he gave us the weakest recovery in history, just enough to get by and say its better.
Now insert Bush comment here_____________.

Apparently the problem was that Bush added "ONLY" $4 trillion to the debt.

This reminds me of the people who argue Obama was somehow a wonderful president for "lowering" the deficit
