Spender in chief

Federal government spending during the all-Republican era rose from a four year average of 18.7% during Clinton's last four years, up to 20.2% of GDP for the past four fiscal years. That's an increase of about $180 Billion a year, with nary a single veto by President Bush.

Now, President Bush is warning that he will "veto runaway spending".

Talk about closing the barn door after the horse escaped.

Federal debt is up more than $3 Trillion since Bush took office, and increase of 50%.
