    Until Barack Obama took office in 2009, the United States had never spent more than 23.5% of GDP, with the exception of the World War II years of 1942-1946.

    Here’s the Obama spending record:
    – 25.2% of GDP in 2009

    – 24.1% of GDP in 2010

    – 24.1% of GDP in 2011

    – 24.3% (estimates by the White House ) in 2012

    What’s more, if Obama wins another term, spending—according to his own budget—would never drop below 22.3% of GDP. If that forecast is right, spending during Obama’s eight years in office would average 23.6% of GDP. That’s higher than any single previous non-war year.

    Yet financial columnist Rex Nutting of MarketWatch tries to portray the president as being downright stingy in a piece entitled, stunningly, “Obama spending binge never happened”:

    Of all the falsehoods told about President Barack Obama, the biggest whopper is the one about his reckless spending spree. As would-be president Mitt Romney tells it: “I will lead us out of this debt and spending inferno.” Almost everyone believes that Obama has presided over a massive increase in federal spending, an “inferno” of spending that threatens our jobs, our businesses and our children’s future. Even Democrats seem to think it’s true. Government spending under Obama, including his signature stimulus bill, is rising at a 1.4% annualized pace — slower than at any time in nearly 60 years.

    And here’s the chart summarizing Nutting’s argument:
    [​IMG]

    As the chart indicates, Nutting arrives at that 1.4% number by assigning 2009—when spending surged nearly 20%—to George W. Bush: “The 2009 fiscal year, which Republicans count as part of Obama’s legacy, began four months before Obama moved into the White House. The major spending decisions in the 2009 fiscal year were made by George W. Bush and the previous Congress. Like a relief pitcher who comes into the game with the bases loaded, Obama came in with a budget in place that called for spending to increase by hundreds of billions of dollars in response to the worst economic and financial calamity in generations.”

    Let me complete the metaphor for Nutting: “Then as those runners scored, Obama kept putting more on base.”

    Obama chose not to reverse that elevated level of spending; thus he, along with congressional Democrats, are responsible for it. Only by establishing 2009 as the new baseline, something Republican budget hawks like Paul Ryan feared would happen, does Obama come off looking like a tightwad. Obama has turned a one-off surge in spending due to the Great Recession into his permanent New Normal through 2016 and beyond.

    It’s as if one of my teenagers crashed our family minivan, and I had to buy a new one. And then, since I liked that new car smell so much, I decided to buy a new van every year for the rest of my life. I would indeed be a reckless spender.

    Here is another way Nutting could have framed the spending issue:

    The Obama spending record looks a little different now, yes?

    As if war spending - initiated by Bush - should be attached to Obama. Like he had a choice ....

    creative accounting and spin over substance ... wonder if it will work?

    I remember Obama claiming something about lowering unemployment ... When it didn't work he finally just lowered the numbers.

    Oh, so now he didn't have a choice despite the fact he campaigned on it heavily last time? Blame Bush!

    Worked in 2008, didn't it? There's no shortage of brain dead voters out there that will snarf up whatever falls out of the novelty presidents ass.

    'For the record, here are Obama’s votes in favor of war funding bills. We count 10 votes on five separate measures.'

    Unemployment will drop to 6% anyway as those unabble to find jobs drop off of unemployment.
