Default 2011 deficit compared with the 2008 deficit

According to the official US Debt Clock.org...

Not Found ... ock.org%2F.

On this day in 2008, Bush administration income taxes were $2.529 trillion, with a deficit of $4.325 Trillion.

On this day in 2011, Obama administration income taxes are $2.299 trillion, with a deficit of $1.302 Trillion.

The difference is $3.23 trillion more deficit in 2008

1. Your link is broken.
2. According to the US National Debt Clock, the US Federal Tax Revenue on this day in 2008 was $2.529 trillion, not the "administration income taxes". The same problem applies to your 2011 quote.
3. How you calculated the deficit in either 2008 or 2011 is not clear. What cell(s) specifically are you referring to on the US National Debt Clock/ This Day in 2008?

On this date in 2008, I was three years younger than I am now.

On this date in 2011, I am three years older than I was in 2008.

I vote that we split Waluigi's last post into two separate threads.

Try this one... You'll find up to date unemployment numbers for both 2008 and 2011. To find 2008 click on the circler arrow.

Actually you were talking about deficit here. Unemployment was one of your other threads.
How you calculated the deficit in either 2008 or 2011 is not clear. What cell(s) specifically are you referring to on the US National Debt Clock, now and in 2008? I cannot find cells that corresponds to your deficit numbers in the OP, and so don't know how you calculated them.
