What percentage of our debt is to the Chinese?

I'll be waiting here.

President Obama, during his 2008 campaign, criticized President Bush for taking “out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents … so that we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back.”

Move along...nothing to see here.....

Looks like a ton of governement waste in this thread, I am for cutting it all, no matter who is at the wheel.

Hard to say, "some should pay their fair share" when looking at all this crap. Cut it all out, THEN, go after peoples money

I asked a simple question requiring a numerical response.

It was a question that you could have easily looked up yourself.

I was using a line out of your saviors playbook.

Again, below.

About 8%, no need to wait, or beat around the subject of my post though.

The post was that both sides are spending US into a horrible mess.

How is 8% a horrible mess?

Government's shouldn't be immune to recessions. I think Obama's expansion of government has hired 100+ new federal employees a day along with better compensation during his entire tenure is assinine.

In the 1,420 days since he took the oath of office, the federal government has daily hired on average 101 new employees. Every day. Seven days a week. All 202 weeks. That makes 143,000 more federal workers than when Obama talked forever on that cold day in January of 2009.

You are not this stupid.

The debt is the mess, not just owing a portion of it to China.

Again, I was using the Presidents words to describe the stupidity.

I think that debt averaging 100+% of GDP is awesome.

No reason to worry about it though...
