ACORN, by the way, has previously announced that they will not be seeking grants under the stimulus bill since they do not do the types of work covered by the program.
With respect to the post-WWII growth of the deficit as a percentage of GDP, you can blame almost 100% of that on the deified Republican duopoly of Reagan and Bush Jr. There is no doubt that Obama could join that pantheon. I hope he does not and will criticize him if he does in the same manner that I have criticized Reagan and GWB.
