B-b-b-But It’s HIS Fault

The  Washington  Post  babbled again today about Obama inheriting a huge  deficit from Bush. Amazingly enough, a lot of people swallow this  BULL.

So once more, a short civics lesson.

Budgets do not come from  the White  House.  They come  from Congress and the party that controlled Congress since January  2007 is the Democratic Party.

Furthermore, the Democrats controlled the budget  process for FY 2008 & FY 2009 as well as FY 2010 & 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 & 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.

And where was Barack Obama during this time?   He was a member of that very Congress that passed  all of these massive spending bills, and he signed  the omnibus bill as President to complete FY  2009.  Let’s remember what the deficits looked like  during that period:     (below)

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

There is no way this will be  widely publicized, unless each of us sends it  on! This is your chance to make a  difference.
