    Turns out 11,000,000 folks signed up for food stamps during Bush's terms. Anyone earning $18,000 per year for a family of three is eligible and the end of Bush's term presented economic conditions worse than at any time since the great depression. Obama has just had to live with it.

    Shhhhhhhhhh.....the "conservatives" don't like facts about their Presidents. And PLEASE, don't mention the fact that Reagan granted immunity to millions of illegal immigrants while he was POTUS....

    Ah, we've got almost 46,000,000 people on food stamps now...the highest number ever. The amount spent on food stamps has DOUBLED since Bush left office. Obama hasn't just "lived with it"...his policies have produced an economy where long term unemployment has turned millions of Americans into "wards of the State" dependent on handouts to survive.

    Shhh, Democrats like to Pretend that more People than Ever, Including under Bush, are on food stamps now.

    Shhh, Democrats like to Pretend like Obama can do no wrong, and his Policies are not hampering a recovery.

    Shhh, Democrats don't like to talk about the FACT that their Ideas are always government Centered. When the Economy is going down, they don't think how can we help the Private Sector Turn this around, they think lets spend more on Food Stamps, and Unemployment, and rack up tons of Debt.

    They don't have solutions, Democrats are like Nyquill. Good at relieving Symptoms, but does NOTHING at all to cure the Illness.

    I'm just fine with "facts", VaYank...it's the bullshit I have a problem with. When are you guys going to stop blaming Bush and take responsibility for your own actions?

    Interesting.

    Put up or shut the fuck up. You people thing just because you say something it's fact. You don't bother to fact check. Too fucking lazy to do the googling your selves.


    3rd GRADER SMARTER THEN HANNITY AND GINGRICH.


    We asked the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food and Nutrition service for month-by-month figures going back to January 2001. And they show that under President George W. Bush the number of recipients rose by nearly 14.7 million. Nothing before comes close.

    And under Obama, the increase so far has been 14.2 million. To be exact, the program has so far grown by 444,574 fewer recipients during Obama's time in office than during Bush's.
    The number getting food stamps declined by 43,528 in October. And the economy has improved since then.

    Fact check: Gingrich's faulty food-stamp claim
