    Just SNAP went up 40 billion in 4 years. The food stamp budget more than doubled in 4 years.

    Christ. Hundreds of extra billions a year.

    This is a non-story...what's more important is what some no name GOP candidate in some east bumblefuck district in Arkansas (or wherever the hell it was) said about black people. :cool:

    Not saying this is Bush's fault, but when did George W. become this coddled little piece of precious American history? You can't criticize the guy without right wingers jumping up and down to protct him, claiming his 8 years in office had zero impact on the country. Sickening.

    You can't even talk about Bush without some conservative running in as if they're Liam Neeson saving his daughter in a shitty movie saying "Don't blame BUSH!!!!!"

    Or my favorite: "But he dealt with a war maaaaaaan!"

    Yet you'll come flying in to defend the current president, who currently affects the country, who currently is up for reelection, from absolutely any criticism? I'm sick of talking about Bush... he doesn't fucking matter anymore. Yet your messiah can still affect this country, so how about we focus a little more on him?

    Doesn't sound as pathetic as "it was the last guy's fault, maaaaaan".

    • Bush never had a budget that spent more than 40 billion on the SNAP/EBT/"Food Stamp" Program. President Obama has never had a year that spent less than 40 billion. He currently spends 80 billion and requested 83 billion for 2013.
    • More people have joined disability in Obama's first term as did join disability in two terms of Bush. There have been multiple months under Obama where more people join disability than find employment.
    • 50 times as many people have registered for food stamps (15 million) than net jobs created (300,000) and almost 3 times as many as total jobs created (5.3 million)
    • Number of people on Medicaid in 2001: 32 million. 2001-2009 saw 12 million people added, the total being 44 million. 2009 onwards, the number of people using Medicaid is over 52 million. Medicaid website itself says more than 58 million people "rely on Medicaid"
    • There are almost countless instances of gibsmuhdat that isn't flashy like food stamps, Section 8, Medicaid and disability being jacked through the roof. For instance, prisoner re-entry program under Bush, 25 million, under Obama the program almost costs 800 million.

    Other things to note include things like there were never more than 30 million individuals receiving food stamps under Bush. There were 4 years under Bush where individual recipients were under 25 million. There has never been a year since 2009 where it has been under 30 million with Obama. Not only are not less people using these programs, the amount of new users from 2009 to 2012 is larger than the amount of new users from 2000 to 2008.

    You are an idiot. No one is defending Bush, it is simply a play off of what the current administration has been doing for 4 years now. Some of what they have said over time is valid but completely lost because of how often they keep saying it. This administration is like Andy Reid never taking responsibility for anything, its always someone else's fault. Now you can go back to stroking Obama

    You usually do.


    I never defended him. I never liked nor voted for him or his father.
    But everything that Obama gets criticized for seems to end up being
    Bush's fault according to his supporters.

    Can't talk up Obama's actual record these past 4 years...so continue blaming Bush, Romney, the rich, GOP, etc. Then when you get all worked up reading responses criticizing you for ignoring Obama's actual record and blaming someone else...you claim we're all Bush, Romney, the rich, GOP, etc lovers. I love it. Where did the Obama campaign find you dopes?
