Thanks GW Bush! National Debt now $8 trillion for the first time

Data Point: Outrageous Debt

As the USA national debt surpassed $8 trillion for the first time...

"[President Bush] has borrowed more money - $1.05 trillion - from foreign governments and banks since taking office than all other presidents combined. From 1776 to 2000, the nation's 42 presidents borrowed a combined $1.01 trillion from foreign interests."
