I'll address that with a very simplistic approach later. Spare me the snide remarks mmk?
Actually, Xeno--in my experience, some liberals want to just yell "IT'S BUSH'S FAULT!" and act like that settles the matter.
Which proves us both right. There are idiots on both ideological sides who just yell about how it's someone's fault and then don't provide a solution. Yeah, there are things that are Bush's fault. There's things that are Obama's fault. 200 years ago, they were screaming about how the War of 1812 was Madison's fault. It's human nature to blame somebody for something that wasn't one person's fault.
On the subject of taxes, I'm okay with paying them...I just wish they were spent better. I'm okay with it being spent to buy a F-22. I'm okay with it being spent to pay Obama's salary. I'm not okay with it being spent so he and other politicos can go play golf, or waste millions on a study about hog lard use in Arkansas.
