phony numbers.

Obama spent a trillion in borrowed money on porkulus..


then counted that trillion as a new 'baseline spending' figure.

duh!


He spent a trillion extra....then the next year, when he only increased it another 5%.......which was another 1 trillion 50 billion more than the baseline two year before...

you only count it as a 5% increase?

GImme a break. He just ramped up his 'baseline' by that trillion in porkulus.....and never bothered to tell anyone that he is really spending 40% more than 2 years before..and each year. that trillion porkulus is 'the new baseline....' a one shot deal now uppped that baseline by a trillion.

Obama is spending us into the poorhouse.

He's borrowed more in 4 years that Bush did in 8 years.

He's borrowed more in the last 4 years that all the first 30 Presidents....



Wow...liberals play loose with the figures.
