Bush has succeeded in lowering the national debt another 50 billion since Jan. 1

Bush's tax cuts are the reason for the booming economy and the reduction in the national debt. The defeatocrats in congress are strangely silent on this, they're trying to ignore the success of Bush's tax cuts. In spite of the millions being spent daily on the war on terror, Bush is still reducing the debt. Taking the fight to the bad guys, keeping us safe since 9/11 when Clinton allowed us to get attacked and reducing the debt. Bush will certainly go down as one of our greatest presidents.

God bless George Bush.

Assuming this is true (I know, probably a dumb move), only about another $400 billion to go before we can break even for the money we wasted in Iraq alone.

Bush is...keeping us safe since 9/11

But he took a break on 9/11, huh?

when Clinton allowed us to get attacked

:P What color is the sky in your world?

   God bless George Bush.

Someone's not paying attention to the approval ratings. Less than one in three US citizens think he's doing a good job. Also, I'm sure he'll "go down" the way you say in however many books/articles people like you write, but that doesn't change reality. Fact: Bush has the lowest approval rating in this country's history. Again, what color is the sky in your world? 'Cause in this reality, that would point a little more toward worst president, not best.

That's the deficit, you imbecile, not the national debt. The national debt is still growing by leaps and bounds, just somewhat smaller leaps and bounds than last year. The national debt has already grown by 379 billion so far this fiscal year, and will likely grow another 125 billion or so by the end of it. For comparison, it grew by 574 billion in FY 2006.

All hail GWB and the Republicans in Congress! They've screwed us over less this year than last! It's pathetic. But I guess you have to resort to things like that when you're trying to make neocons look good.

That would be great if it were true. Unfortunately, the government itself...

...shows the debt growing from 8,680,224,380,086.18 to 8,886,560,061,162.27 in that time. Sorry.

The great news is that the worst president in our history has only 18 months left in office with only 26% of the people supporting him, so he probably can't do too much more damage - if we're lucky.

Reducing a debt on paper with creative bookeeping, a deb you yourself created is hardly a great accomplishment. It's nothing more than a firefighter extinguishing a blaze he himself ignited and then patting himself on the back as a hero.

Bush will go down as a great president in the same way the Titanic went down as a great ship.

Are you on something? 50 billion is insignificant considering under Bush's watch the national debt grew from 5.7 trillion to 8.9 trillion. A 3200 billion increase.

Its easy to cut taxes when you can borrow. The ones that hold our debt are countries like China. Basically his tax cuts has enabled China to buy us. Its like a 2nd or 3rd mortgage. Sooner or later there will be a payback.

Probably one reason the dollar has lost over 40% of its value against the Euro. Debtor nations do not have stable currencies. When Bush got in it took $.90 to buy one Euro. Now it takes $1.37 to buy one Euro.

You're referring to the "Total Public Debt", that's the amount owed in mortgages, credit cards, etc. by the american public. The "national debt", what is owed by the Federal Government is what I referred to. (Sorry).

Apparently, in your universe the English language is not used. You refer to the "Public Debt", the amount owed in mortgages and credit cards, etc. by the american public, which of course goes up as the population increases. I was quoting the "National Debt", the amount owed by the Federal Government, which Bush has reduced by 50 Billion since Jan.1st. You should stick to what you know best, comic books.

See response to Radagast, I can't deal with all these idiots.

The national debt was not reduced. Not even on paper. BushBacker is just having a comprehension problem.

No, he doesn't. "Debt held by the public" refers to money the federal government owes to entities other than itself. It is "public" in the same sense as "public funding" or "public housing". What you are describing (mortgages, credit card debt, etc.) is "personal" or "private" debt. Speaking of these private debts in aggregate doesn't make them "public debt", any more than speaking of privately owned automobiles in aggregate would turn your car into "public transportation".

I was quoting the "National Debt", the amount owed by the Federal Government, which Bush has reduced by 50 Billion since Jan.1st.

No, you weren't. There has been no reduction of national debt in the period you claim. You were most likely crowing about the recent reduction in the federal budget deficit, having either misheard it as a reduction of national debt, or possibly not understanding the difference. A deficit reduction means only that the federal government's spending exceeded its revenue by a smaller amount than the previous period, not that the national debt has been reduced.

What you are referring to as Public Debt is actually called Consumer Debt. As of August 2006 it was at 2.17 trillion*-high, but nowhere near the Public Debt, which the page my last post contained explained. Radagast is referring to the Public Debt correctly. Perhaps you should do some research before insulting other posters' intelligence.

What's the matter, lose your glasses? The site is the National Debt as in government debt. It has nothing to do with credit card debt. It hasn't gone down ... it's gone up.
