The Bush legacy:
The specter of recession took a toll on President Bush’s proposed budget Monday, more than doubling the projected federal deficit and setting up an election-year battle with Democrats over spending priorities.
The $3.1 trillion budget would sharply reduce the growth of Medicare and trim other domestic programs, while providing sizable increases for defense, diplomacy and homeland security.
Perhaps its most lasting legacy, however, would be the re-emergence of deficits above $400 billion, nearly matching the $412 billion record set in 2004. The deficit would rise from $162 billion in 2007 to $410 billion this year and $407 billion next year.
Given the cheerleading forBush done by the Hewitt’s and the NRO’s the last eight years, it is particularly amusing listening to them tell us how “conservative” Romney is and that we should vote for him. Frauds.
