This graph courtesy of Instapundit is one of those reminders that Iraq, Afghanistan, and George W. Bush, fails to explain this deficit problem:
Yes, the economy ended up in serious trouble in 2008. But this simply fails to explain the sheer scale of these problems. On the other hand, 2008 is the first full year that the Democrats controlled both houses of Congress, and 2009, they gained control of the White House. Do you suppose that might have something to do with it?
And yet, vast numbers of young people whose futures will be destroyed by that deficit are going to vote for Obama and Democrats for Congress next month. What's wrong with this picture?
