The Stimulus

No one can say it quite like Bill.

"I find it amazing that the Republicans, who doubled the debt of the country in eight years and produced no new jobs doing it, gave us an economic record that was totally bereft of any productive result, are now criticising him (Obama) for spending money," Clinton told the CNN in an interview.

--This is some of what he is referring to.

The largest U.S. Embassy in the world is now built in Iraq, costing some claim $700 billion.

The cost of conducting the Iraq War approximately $10 billion a month.

The national debt clock reveals that the national debt has skyrocketed to $10,771, 107, 905 trillion.

George W. Bush has the dubious distinction of being the U.S. White House resident who catapulted the national debt to the highest in history, greater than all the other national debts combined since the U.S. was founded as a nation.
