To pretend the deficit isn't a problem is to have one's head in the sand. Nonetheless, it doesn't have to take priority but it can't be ignored either.
Even so, I like people who say what they'll do to actually do what they say.
I'm not sure of this. Do you have anything, anything at all, to confirm this certainty?
4 years is a long time. You seem to want it done in one day. IIRC, it was 1.4t when he started and is 1.1t now. He was about 40% to his goal. Did he damage the economy by doing that? If so, why did he get re-elected? He failed on a promise and damaged the economic recovery.
