Thank you very much for the information. If a person is smarter enough, he should be able to get How Democrat and Republic have been doing on the national deficient:
Under Bush, the deficient hs been increased from Clinton's SURPLUS of $127.3 B in 2001 to $1413 B in 2009. And Obama has reduced deficient from Bush's $1413 B in 2009 to $1011B in 2012.
YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER. The budget is defined one year before. 2001 budget has been decided in 2000 When Clicnton is in office and Bush could not change it even he is in office. Same as in 2009, Bush's government decided the budget for 2009 and Obama could not change it even he is in office.
I always heard some republic saying Republic is better for economy. Both jobs created and stock market performance, Democrat presidency has much better than Republic. These are cold number you could find online.
How was the stock market performed under Bush's 8 years? I guess many here could still remember. How much the stock market has been up since Obama took office? I guess many here know it from their own portfolio.
