How many lies have to be told before the news press wakes the hell up and starts correcting these intentional misrepresentations that have been told consistently about President Obama to tarnish his character, accomplishments and paint him as an unfavorable person so the Republican party can continue to loot the working class?
Rex Nutting from market watch had a great piece I think should be shared with everyone who has heard time and time again the accusation that President Obama is drowning this country in more debt since he is just a big spender. Well, that couldn’t be true because the facts says it all and the fact is Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush have sunk this country into a massive debt so let’s debunk the myth Republicans are trying to spin as usual.
WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — Of all the falsehoods told about President Barack Obama, the biggest whopper is the one about his reckless spending spree.
As would-be president Mitt Romney tells it: “I will lead us out of this debt and spending inferno.”
Almost everyone believes that Obama has presided over a massive increase in federal spending, an “inferno” of spending that threatens our jobs, our businesses and our children’s future. Even Democrats seem to think it’s true.
Government spending under Obama, including his signature stimulus bill, is rising at a 1.4% annualized pace — slower than at any time in nearly 60 years.
But it didn’t happen. Although there was a big stimulus bill under Obama, federal spending is rising at the slowest pace since Dwight Eisenhower brought the Korean War to an end in the 1950s.
Even hapless Herbert Hoover managed to increase spending more than Obama has.
In fiscal year 2013, according to CBO’s forecast, spending is scheduled to fall to $3.58 trillion which is a 1.3% decline from FY 2012. I must agree to what the White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said yesterday when he forcefully rebuke the press for buying into the Republican BS that this Administration is spending too much adding that “doing so is a sign of sloth and laziness”. Yes indeed!
I am proud of my President because the road America has travelled with President Obama in the last 3 1/2 years are the most difficult, challenging and at times discouraging where it seemed the President was doing his thing all alone. The Professional Left though he is not doing much or is not Left enough for them while the obstructionist birthers and Republicans have made it their do or die commitment plotting how they can down Obama’s Presidency with horrible and divisive rhetoric doing anything and everything they can to drag American into a ditch.
Below is just a flash back vedio about where we were and where we are today and still with all the shit this country was left after G.W. Bush left office, President Obama’s record are factually the most impressive in managing our spending and he has all of these accomplishments to back it up with.
It is only my hope that the Press will tell the truth and if they don’t you as readers can spread the truth one door at a time. YES WE CAN AND YES WE WILL!
