Were you asleep during Bush I, II and Reagan? When has Repub leadership ever been fiscally conservative?

I love this argument. It infers that because Bush was not a fiscal conservative that it excuses spending under Obama. Meanwhile Obama's rate of spending far outstrips Bush's. Believe me, in terms of Bush spending it was bad but the real spending didn't happen until the Dems controlled congress in 2006.

But back to your inference...does it suggest that Dems believe Bush didn't spend enough? Or the Dems simply support Obama blindly? I 100% confident it's the latter. Obama could barbaque live babies and eat them for lunch and he still could do no wrong according to the Dems.

No I was awake. Reagan never had a GOP
Congress, and had a GOP Senate for only 2 years.

He was able to push through tax cuts in the first 2 years because of his landslide victory. After that it was all downhill.

It's kind of hard to cut spending when you don't control the House.

As far as the 2 Bushes-yep they spent too much. Bush I reneged on his no new taxes pledge because he was stupid enough to believe the Dems when they promised spending cuts in exchange for tax increases.

Bush II thought he could buy votes with his domestic spending.
