Reader comment on item: The One-Minute Guide to Obama's Foreign Policy
in response to reader comment: America's sinking power

Submitted by Michael S (United States), Oct 17, 2015 at 04:38

Lars, you seem to be unaware of US economics:

National Debt (billions of US$):

2000 (last year of Clinton administration): 5,674.18

2008 (last full year of GW Bush administration): 10,024.72
(an increase of $4,300,000,000)

2015 (under Barack Obama): 18,150.62
(an increase of over $8,100,000,000 -- and Obama still has a year left in office, with the debt rising every day.)

Obama's term in office has been a disaster domestically, just as it has in foreign policy.
