Triskaidekaphobia alert!

As the national debt tops $13 trillion for the first time (a grim milestone, indeed), a reminder of the GWB and BHO contributions to the mess:

Since the beginning of the 2000?s, the national debt has increased by $7,274,735,146,661.64, more in a period of ten years than in the previous 211 year history of the Republic.

Obama's share of that? So far, $2,423,949,411,973.89 in 499 days. Or over $4.8 billion in debt growth per day.

Under President Bush? Debt growth was at over $1.6 billion per day. Now, that $1.6 billion isn't a good number, but it's better than the $4.8 billion per day under Obama.

The really astonishing part is the 10 year/211 year comparison. And some people say they don't understand the rise of the tea party movement.

Time to restore taxes to Clinton-era levels. Or hell, even Nixonian levels.

Here's a novel idea in lieu of taxes. Put away the frickin' checkbook.

Lest it be forgotten......during the last two years of Bush II's administration, the Democrats were in charge in the House and the Senate.
