President Obama said today his $3.8 trillion budget "reflects the serious challenges" facing the United States, including a massive debt bequeathed by the George W. Bush administration.http://content.usatoday.com/communities/theoval/post/2010/02/obama-debt-is-legacy-of-decade-of-profligacy/1
Obama did not mention Bush by name, but did blame "the previous administration" and previous Congresses for "a decade of profligacy" that has created an overall debt of more than $12 trillion.
There should be a one year statute of limitations on blaming your predecessor . . . particularly when you quadruple your predecessor's deficits and the previous Congress was run by your allies Reid and Pelosi.
