The first time I posted this fact, it was removed.

And the jerks who removed it called me a troll.

So writing the stimulus into the baseline, which boosted gdp, was a good thing.

the author's quote "I write for the left"

No need to try to be objective of his hogwash

You guys suck at defending Obama...

1.3 Trillion is the deficit spending...and the national debt has increased 70% under his watch.

Only a hack would dream of trying to suggest he has shrunk the deficit...

Add Kasich to that if you are talking economy.

Newt gave the impetus, Kasich made it work.

The debt is not the same thing as the deficit.

re: Fact: Obama cut the deficit in half


quote:

“Compared to the size of the economy, the deficit in 2013 is much lower than in 2009, when Obama took office. The deficit will be 5.3 percent of gross domestic product this year, nearly half the 10.1 percent of GDP in 2009.” The improvement in the deficit as measured against GDP is the direct result of the deficit falling to $845 billion for fiscal year 2013—a $300 billion improvement over the previous year. And the positive trend is projected to continue though the next fiscal year where the the annual budgetary deficit will fall again to $430 billion.


If falling by 50% is still at $845B, things are still pretty effing bad.

I wish some people could read this and understand what it's actually saying. And this coming from Forbes.

re: Fact: Obama cut the deficit in half


This is a misleading chart.

Obama inherited a budget deficit that was 10.1% of GDP.

It is currently 5.2% of GDP.

By inherited do you mean that Obama signed the last FY09 CR because the Democratic Congress refused to pass a budget in 2008 since they knew that Obama was going to win?

That's because you said "all you ignorant hateful hicks" or something along those lines.
