    It isn't Obama, unless Forbes is Marxist, Socialist, Liberal, etc.

    Who Is The Smallest Government Spender Since Eisenhower? Would You Believe It's Barack Obama? - Forbes

    The two biggest spenders since Eisenhower are....REAGAN, BUSH II. I notice the board is less than cordial these days, I am an exception; I find neither Obama nor Romney 'evil', 'anti American, or '_________'. Any other moderates not filled with disgust at the mere mention of either man's name?

    Well you certainly are not an Exception to the rule that most people in here are easily Fooled by Propaganda.

    This so called story is not new, and was thoroughly Debunked. They simply Moved all the spending from 2009 to Bushes Column including the Stimulus Bill. They also Fail to Take into Account TARP funds that have been paid back.

    Your right, Forbes is not a Liberally Biased source, but this Article is a Piece of Liberal Propaganda.

    No the Post article did not "shred" the facts, in fact:

    “The problem with that rosy claim is that the Wall Street bailout is part of the calculation. The bailout ballooned the 2009 budget just before Obama took office, making Obama’s 2010 results look smaller in comparison......"

    The bailout is part of Bush II's 'legacy'(.) The Post attacked the analysis but nothing takes away from the Reagan/Bush II spending binges.

    lol

    You sound like a lunatic really. Talking about Regan and Bush spending, when this President has out spent Bush in half the time.

    I mean seriously, right out of your mind.
