Obama and Bush caused debt

When U.S. debt forces costly cuts to Social Security, will the blame be placed fairly?

Both George W. Bush and Barack Obama should be put in the Presidential Hall of Financial Shame for what they have done to the national debt ("The deficit on the horizon," Jan. 29). When interest rates start increasing and the cost to finance the debt starts taking money from Social Security, Medicare, the U.S. Department of Defense and all other programs, will The Sun blame them (as it should) or some poor president in the future?

President Obama claimed that the "debt is sustainable," which is a major untruth.
