Dude, I'm the author of the post, so I assume you mean me. Maybe I like Obama the same as the next guy, but probably more and in any event not less. Like most people, I would classify myself a fiscal conservative, though.

That graph is from the left-leaning Washington Post and the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office. It's dramatic and shows that as much as Bush wasted money, he was a rookie compared to Obama. It makes me sick.
