I’ll Explain This Slowly…

Today I was walking into the local Dollar General to pick up some coffee creamer when I heard a guy on the opposite side of a shelf say "…Pfffttt! People go on about how much better he is than Bush, but the economy's gone to shit since Obama took over."

I didn't say anything to the guy, but I thought I'd explain it here:

If you go out and max all your credit cards, borrow money from everyone you know and spend like there's no tomorrow, it will appear that you're doing really well to the casual observer. Unfortunately, once the bills start showing up, it's an entirely different story.

Long story short, Bush maxed the credit cards and left office just as the bill showed up.
