From Cookie Christine:
President George W. Bush and the current administration have now borrowed more money from foreign governments and banks than the previous 42 U.S. presidents combined, which the Blue Dog Coalition in the House of Representatives called "astounding."
Throughout the first 224 years (1776-2000) of our nation's history, 42 U.S. presidents borrowed a combined $1.01 trillion from foreign governments and financial institutions according to the U.S. Treasury Department. In the past four years alone (2001-2005), the Bush Administration has borrowed a staggering $1.05 trillion.
The asshole couldn't keep an oil company solvent, and then ran the Texas Rangers into the ground while ripping-off the citizens of Houston. If that wasn't enough now he's trying to bankrupt the United States.
