FACT-CHECKING THE PRESIDENT IN BALTIMORE: “That means that over twelve years of Republican rule, there was an average annual budget deficit of about $104 billion. Compare that with an average annual deficit since 2008 of $1.074 trillion — or about $90 billion per month.”Bush was President until 2009, nimrods. "Since 2008" happens to include the $700B TARP that Bush signed.
What, that doesn't count?
Anyway, the historical record of Republicans and deficits is clear.
