Applying some simple numbers to Debt.

Eight years of Bush from 2001 to 2008 debt rose by $2.5 trillion.

Two years under Obama, debt is expected to rise $3 trillion.

The length of 1,000,000,000,000 (one trillion) one dollar bills laid end-to-end measures 96,906,656 miles. This would exceed the distance from the earth to the sun.

So in two years Obama has spent more in debt than 3 times the distance of the earth to the sun...

large numbers
