Obama Shown To Be Spending Less Than Previous Administrations, To The Right's DismayFor those interested in some facts about Obama's supposed "out of control spending", check out the new analysis by Rex Nutting at:
The GOP and the Right just keep repeating the "he's a deficit spending socialist" mantra, despite evidence to the contrary--but, we all know that the Right has rarely needed actual evidence for much of what they do, the simply say it long enough that people believe it.
In response to this analysis, the Right's main response has been that "The bailout ballooned the 2009 budget just before Obama took office." But, why shouldn't this go on Bush's tally? The Right is very willing to tally-up things like job-loss very strictly (i.e., "this happened on Obama's watch") when it's in their favor, but now their trying to say that Obama should be responsible for funding the bailout of the collapse that happened when Bush was presiding over the country! That's rich!
