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?
