As a past practicing CPA I can tell you that the Republicans are the ones who know how to balance a checkbook and the Democrats are the ones who throw their expenses (business and non-business) into shoe boxes and try to give it to you. Furthermore the Republicans do not try to get away with questionable expenses. That is from my experiences. I am an Independent but I am pro-business any day. I don't see any unions leading to a path of prosperity.
Oh yea, and Republicans couldn't add the cost of invading 2 Arab countries, trillions in tax cuts for the well-off, and Medicare D, but you're proud they balance a checkbook? I guess the bar is pretty low!
bush really knew how to balance a check book(republican)! as close as you could get to a DEPRESSION- he got us there! his 8 years statistics were so bad that his own party didn't want him around during the convention! did you see clinton there? history tells us clinton was one of the top 2 presidents that knew how to balance a checkbook! history has already recorded that!!!!!!!!!!!!! by the way- remember bush aligned himself with a group of iraqs that were going to run their country! fact-he gave them 15 billion & they left with his money without being found! when it became known-fact-our government (republican) acknowledge it since it couldn't be hidden anymore!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Really? Obama has got Bush beat and in only one term. As a financial guy i can only guess that Obama wants to spend the country into poverty or he is just really bad with math. 60 percent increase in "official" debt - not counting unfunded liabilities and no talk of cutting entitlements at all. PS - Bush sucked too.
