Nice one. You'll clearly convince everyone by calling them idiots!

Seriously BR, when has this ever been an issue?
All debt calculations have always laid the current debt against the current president.
Did anyone talk about 'Clinton's debt' when Bush II was in office? Or 'Bush I's' debt when Clinton was in office?
This is an idiotic point. Obama has had some of the lowest interest rates ever to hit the earth to contend with during his presidency.
Well all the points made this election by Democrats are likely going to be idiotic. Obama cannot run on the economy. In fact polling by Democratic firms have shown that if they try to do so, it not only is their weakest case to make, it is treated as laughable. So what we are going to do is get what we are seeing here. There will be a ton of mocking, a ton of bullying, every side issue you can think of brought to the fore and declared to be a war on someone or something.
So because Obama made a mandate, if you don't agree with it, and note that little Sally might have to keep giving Walmart the same $9 a month she has been giving them for the last decade, then suddenly you are at war with a woman's uterus. If you don't like the Chevy Volt or agree that all the green job losses were well intentioned and necessary efforts, then you will be at war with the environment or the planet. To think this isn't even the actual true election season as it will be this Fall is just horrifying. Obama and his minions are clearly headed in the direction of trying to bully the nation into reelecting him. It will be horrifying.
