      This is a wonderful visual and should be put in every school. Even little children could understand it so adults should easily understand it. Kudos to whoever put it together!

    4. Bob McKenna, Florida says:

      Betty Hanicke is absolutely right: "even little children could understand it," but that is because they are not influenced by an incoherent hatred for our 43rd president. The video is great because it presents only facts, and does not attempt to excuse excessive spending by previous administrations. All one has to do is watch, listen, and think.

      The odd thing is — most teachers and professors don't seem to understand this!

      In fact, I've posted this to my Facebook. Looks like my class load may get cut back even more than it has already been — since I've been posting material from Heritage and The American Spectator.

      Also I wasn't busy slobbering over "The One" — as so many of my professorial colleagues were!

    6. Mr. Tommy Carson C says:

      This is SO simple, it should be required watching for every American. Unfortunately, those enamored with "The One" would STILL say it was right wing propaganda,

      Can we get Bill Clinton back? He did the best job with the budget.

      I agree.

      on the video, not the clinton comment.

      The only thing this video does not show is Obama's budget vehicle plunging into an abyss as it drives the nation into the Pacific Ocean.

      If people took Obama's name off the spending going on in DC right now and just looked at the dollars and their impact on our future, this nonsense the Democrats are perpetrating would cease overnight.
