The TRUTH about the Deficit – Dem’s still blame BUSH!

Obama and the Democrats like to dole out the crap in large portions. Check the information below and make up you OWN mind – it’s easy to verify….

The cartoon says it all, but the REAL MESSAGE is the graph ! We need to press our conservative press and POLITICIANS to use more CHARTS/GRAPHS etc–a picture is worth a THOUSAND WORDS. Some of you may remember ROSS PEROT-he was a MASTER with the charts/graphs and pictorials.

The Washington Post babbled again today about Obama inheriting a huge deficit from Bush. Amazingly enough, a lot of people swallow this nonsense.

So once more, a short civics lesson.

Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democratic Party.

Furthermore, the Democrats controlled the budget process for FY 2008 and FY 2009 as well as FY 2010 and FY 2011.

In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush somewhat belatedly got tough on spending increases.

For FY 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the FY 2009 budgets.

And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete FY 2009. Let’s remember what the deficits looked like during that period: (below)

If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the FY 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets.


If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself.

In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is I inherited a deficit that I voted for

And then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since January 20th.

I wish i could take credit for these facts but I am only passing them on…  Check it out, FACTS ARE FACTS!!!
