http://www.marketwatch.com/story/obama-spending-binge-never-...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. 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. ...Mere facts won't get in the way of the rightwing echo chamber's narrative, of course.--FY
