    I was listening to Michael Savage yesterday on the radio driving home from a Rail Hunt and he brought this up. He was very adamant about President Obama spending in his first term more money than all the presidents combined since George Washington was president causing the debt to be out of reach to be salvaged and paid off. If this is true it is simply astonishing. But does anyone have any facts to this accusation?

    No. Bush actions and policies are still the major debt drivers - especially his tax cuts.

    SPENT more? I don't know.

    But, I DO know this: NO President, not even this one, can spend a single dime unless Congress authorizes it.

    Yes. Unless of course you go by the liberal's "new math" or their "It's all Bush's fault" mantra. But the numbers don't lie.

    It fits the disloyal opposition's narrative, but as has been shown above, is not true.

    The question regarding Savage is whether or not he knows that it is untrue. He could be unaware of the facts, like many of our forum righties, in which case we can only pity his ignorance. More likely, however, he knows that he is feeding his audience a line of bull....in which case.....his right to broadcast on our publicly owned airwaves ought to be revoked.

    Savage knows the facts, he just chooses not to use them

    It's already been shown here that the numbers don't support what you're claiming.

    As always, please be less fucking stupid.
