 Just the facts:

   The  Washington Post babbled again recently about Obama's 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 has controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democrat Party.  They 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.  Remember?  


And  where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very  Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills.  He  signed the omnibus bill as President to complete FY 2009.  


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, when Obama says he inherited a huge deficit,  what  he is saying is "I inherited a deficit that I voted for and then I  voted to expand that deficit four-fold since January  20th."

Lets see now….latest polls show dumbocrats up for election distancing themselves from the white house, obama approval rating headed to new lows, a continued record for a 1st term commander in chief or is it chef the way the books are cooked, Republicans will have control of both houses by a never before seen majority, the rush to run up stocks on Institute of Supply Management's misleading (obammies) math (manufacture of goods increased while consumer base shrank) methods may continue. Oh yes, the 1258.80 try oz gold. Call me greedy, I, taking some profits…

I wonder what islander,willie,blackboob or one of his other names will say about that? LMAO!!!!
