    What I KNOW my republican friends would answer is that money prevented from coming in to the treasury should not count.  They'd then lecture me that it is a very telling part of the liberal mindset that we think of that money as the governments and not the property of those who earned it.

    When you pointed out that even without that money, Bush's spending was still off the charts and he did not have to kickstart an imploding economy - they would simply go on about how Bush was never a real conservative anyhow.

    The point being - they would never honestly grapple with these numbers.

    Obama is losing John Edwards' base.
