Don't worry, the usuals will be here in a flash to tell you how wrong you are and how Bush outspent every country on the planet in all of history.

I'm no supporter or fan of Obama.

But this Peter Ferrara guys has a history of inaccurate nonsense and flinging horse manure against the wall, in hopes that it would stick long enough to scrub a few numbheads.

I'm against this administration (Obama's administration), but I'm not buying the manure Ferrara is selling.

Makes for sensationalistic trash and that's about it.

So go ahead, eat it up and swallow it down.

I'll pass.

Obama could rob a man & they will say he didn't do it.

You double god dare me? Ooohhhhhhhh...well, that's scarey

Seriously, how could you not know the facts?

The facts are abundantly available. Go take a good, long look at all the presidents (and congresses) of the past and take a good, long, hard look at who wanted what spending and who voted for it.

Then come back and apologize for your partisan ignorance.

Obama's deficits are bigger than ALL OTHER PRESIDENT'S COMBINED. Obama added $5 TRILLION to the debt in 3 1/2 years. Where are your facts?

Probably got them from the debunked Marketwatch article that forgot to include obama's first year in office - 2009.

Simple math:
Deficit = Revenue - Spending

If spending were $2.5T today, we would still have a deficit. No?

Somehow I doubt you'll be convinced.
Federal spending has climbed from $3T, to $3.8T during the Obama term.. Thats nearly a 25% increase in only 3 years..

The 1.4% growth rate under obama has already been proven a lie.. Again, he's gone from $3T, to $3.8T a year in only 3 years.. That is NOT 1.4% a year..

More silly liberals displaying how they cant do elementary math
