Thanks, I love when you go to the absolute definition of absurd and then blow right through.

Umm... okay. You think the deficit going from $1.4 trillion when Obama took office to $1.1 trillion now is "doubling the deficit," and I'm the one being ridiculous.

You ignore whoppers like "doubling the deficit" or "Dodd-Frank gives 'too-big-to-fail' banks a 'blank check,'" but when a professor says "I'm not sure how they got that from my study, they must have assumed 'X'" it's an outrageous lie.

Like I've said, it's classic confirmation bias. You don't see or ignore your guy's whoppers and inflate the other guy's spin into lies and get really, really excited about them.
