The dubious record of Rob Portman, Bush's budget director


Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio, who headed the Office of Management and Budget during the Bush administration, got his turn at the convention Wednesday night.

Here's a quick reminder of how he did: According to the CBO, when Obama took office in January, 2009, he was left with a $1.2 trillion deficit and $3.1 trillion of debt over the next decade. 

Sounds like just the guy to be listening to about the deficit.
