So if he he is spending marginally less than Dubya's final year does that really mean he his a huge spender? It tells me that we are spending less under Obama even after a bailout and Healthcare reform.


Uh, no. Not on average, and true Obamacare hits in 2014.

Seeing as how Dubya's final deficit just about doubled any previous annual deficit and Obama exceeded or matched that for the first five years, it's pretty clear that he's a big spender. Clinton: The Sequel he is not.

2009 by necessity. 2010 and beyond by choice.

Hey, dweeb, I only talked about the general notion of "common" sense. I have no idea what any of the links in this thread prove or disprove. I haven't taken anyone's side.

We all live in the same world and country, I'm sorry you choose not to keep up with what is actually happening here and use your shitty life in Louisiana as justification for an argument about the deficit.


again you have no clue what you are talking about. when you sign the front of a check instead of the back, get back to me. I live in the real world trying to keep up with this shitty mess your community organizer has turned into a shitstorm. Again I ask you, do you have a job.

The saddest thing about this thread, is that he is using Bush as his comparison.


Let's just say for fun that Obama has spent slightly less or equal to Bush. THAT IS STILL A TON OF SPENDING

This thread has allowed me to add another poster to which I will no longer read his topics though.

My family is from Arkansas... So is my wife...

Just don't think there is a helluva lot of difference between the average Arkansas resident than the average La resident.

re: What do you guys think?


As this 2012 edition of Federal Spending by the Numbers shows, total federal spending for fiscal year 2012[1] reached $3.6 trillion, or 22.9 percent the size of the entire U.S. economy. In the past 20 years, federal outlays have grown 71 percent faster than inflation. The average American household’s share of this spending is $29,691, roughly two-thirds of median household income. This relentless growth is projected to continue, pushing total government outlays to $5.5 trillion a decade from now, and to about 36 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) in the next 25 years

Of the 3.6 trillion dollar U.S. budget roughly forty percent is borrowed. So the deficit spending is 1.44 trillion, sixty two percent which is spent on entitlements. The defense budget, even while at war accounts for only eighteen percent of the budget. For reference at the height of the cold war in 1962 military spending accounted for almost half the budget.
The money has shifted substantially away from defense, and its workforce of engineers, welders, pilots, machinists, draftsmen, and asundry skilled positions who in turn gave back to the economy in spending and tax revenue, to spending on the entitled. The spending on defense was expensive, but there were definitive returns economically speaking. Entitlement spending is essentially dead money, the recipients have limited spending potential and offer no tax revenue back into the treasury.
It comes down to what you want to invest your money in. We can see the results of ours.

i assume OP ran and hid when confronted with what really made up the "deficit"?

or OP was just mad he got called on the carpet, seeing that his intention was to deny that Obama is in fact a "big spender" and wanted to educate us "poor stupid louisiana fox news watching hillbillies".

which lets be honest, is pretty comical coming from a hog.

Only 6% of Americans (myself included) could tell you that the deficit is shrinking at the fastest past in modern American history.




So the government runs the highest deficits in history in 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012. Now, they reduce their deficit to only a Top Ten highest deficit in history and get credit for "shrinking the deficit."
