Increases in the National Debt

I don’t normally visit the Democratic Underground, but this showed up in my Twitter feed this morning and I thought it was interesting.  It’s grossly unfair in that it ignores what would, in this case, literally be off the chart spending/debt increases by Mr. Obama, but nonetheless offers an interesting visual display of Republican “fiscal conservatism.”  And yes, this doesn’t take into account the composition of the Congress at any given time, but the biggest jumps — during the Bush II years — occurred with the GOP controlling both houses.
