A new government report is predicting the budget deficit will drop below $1 trillion for the first time in President Barack Obama's tenure in office.
Can you pinpoint the keyword in that quote?

I think a "keyword", like denial, didn't work out too well for the RWNJs last Nov. and denying that the deficits are turning around will have a similar effect.

its still a deficit

and the is only 2 reasons it is going down.....revenue is increasing as the ecomony chuggs along (until this last quarter)....and the REPUBLICAN CUTS IN SPENDING


if it was up to the fascist liberals, the deficit would be over 2 trillion a year

How is you people on the right have the audacity to cut a trillion dollars worth of revenue, engage in two costly wars, and create an entire new branch of government (DHS) all the while screaming about being the bastions of fiscal prudence?

Hypocrits much?

What's crazy is liberal comprehension of second derivatives. So our national debt increasing at a decreasing rate is cause for celebration? Let's throw a party for fiscal conservative Barack Obama.

1. So did spending....SUBSTANTIALLY. Look at any objective economist worth their weight in soiled linens summation of the cost/benefit of the tax cuts.
2. Again with the spelling thing...The STIMULUS is working and was needed to avoid falling into the fiscal abyss caused by your happy-go-luck deregulator buddies in Wall Street's pocket. On top of that, GWB added substantially to all of the negatives you people complain about...debt, deficit, government size, etc........ And from a purely theoretical standpoint...the wars were just stupid...did Iraq attack us? I always forget.
3. Was an entire new branch of government needed or just reforms within the existing branches? I feel like you people are just riddled with hyprocrisy. It's supposed to be US who support more government and you who supports less yet you guys pop wood when talking about making the military bigger and expansions in this regard.
