Supporters of President Obama like to point to this chart to bolster the "it was all Bush's fault" case. I have a two questions for these folks:
1. Candidate Obama maintained that the Afghan war was the real war, and President Obama followed through on this by expanding the war. Can the portion of the deficit related to this war now be Obama's fault?
2. If President Obama extends some of the Bush tax cuts, will his supporters go back and update these charts from "Bush-era" to "Obama-Bush Era"?
