According the Wall Street Journal Bush's final budget year will have a deficit of more than $1.2 trillion. (Note that the WSJ story was written before President Obama was sworn in.)
When Clinton left office the country had a budget surplus of over $230 billion. Carter submitted a balanced budget to Congress in his last year. LBJ balanced the budget.
