Worst. President. Ever.

Just a quick Worst. President. Ever. update. Today we’re looking at the debt competition category.  (All data is from http://www.savingsbonds.gov/NP/BPDLogin?application=np)

Total debt, last day before Bush’s first budget, 9/30/2001 – $5,807,463,412,200.06
Total debt, last day before Obama’s first budget, 9/30/2009 – $11,909,829,003,511.70

Total debt as of yesterday evening, 1/17/2011 – $15,236,288,061,558.65
Bush total debt increase – $6,102,365,591,311.64 (105% increase in 8 years)
Obama debt increase – $3,326,459,058,046.90 (28% increase in 2 1/2 years)

Don’t get me wrong, Obama is increasing debt at a faster initial rate than Bush did in his first 3 years (Bush was at 27% after 3 full years on 9/30/2004), so Obama is closing in fast, but the numbers don’t lie. Bush is still the all time budget busting champ. Worst. President. Ever.
