    In actual dollars, President Obama’s $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. It’s no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.

    Under Obama’s own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.

    Peace & Prayers.

    I'm happy you had the opportunity to be there for him and comfort him at the end. A man who passes surrounded by loving friends and family is a truly wealthy and rewarded man.
    "In England a king hath little more to do than to make war and give away places; which in plain terms, is to impoverish the nation and set it together by the ears. A pretty business indeed for a man to be allowed eight hundred thousand sterling a year for, and worshipped into the bargain! Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived."

    My condolences.

    Is he going to have an Honor Detail? Sounds like he should.

    If not, maybe you can check out these guys: http://www.buglesacrossamerica.org/

    If available in your area, they'll provide a volunteer bugler to play Taps live at the funeral. Even if he has a military detail they'll still provide a bugler to play instead of the CD version that gets played.

    Sorry FlaGator. I'll say prayers for you and your family.

    I'm very sorry to hear it. My Dad is 90 and I'm not ready to lose him yet! Special prayers for your mother, losing her life's companion after so many years.

    Thank you all for the messages. I appreciate all the thoughts and well wishes and prayer for my family. We were blessed to be with him at the end and perhaps it made his passing a bit easier to accept. Everyone should be so blessed with the opportunity to say good-bye.
