Barack Obama, our next President

Their spending numbers are trash! What the Dems are doing is creating a new baseline using the hundreds of billions of dollars of stimulus money rather than acknowledging it was a one time expenditure. You remove the stimulus spending, go back to the old baseline and Obama is not even close to being thrifty.
Here is another way to look at spending and that is percentage of GDP.
With the exception of WW2 the US never spent more than 23.5% of GDP
Now since 2009
– 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
Even if you credit 2009 to stimulus spending, why do the numbers remain elevated for the next three years?
Its so simple maybe even you can get it.

First off, 2009 was Bush's budget and it included both TARP and the stimulus. Then there was this little thing called a "recession". That means negative GDP so even if spending remains level the percentage of GDP goes up.

As for your last question, GDP remains low, the stimulus was spread over two years and the big spending GOP took over the House in 2011 ... you should ask them.

BTW, who held the previous record of 23.5%?

That's probably because you are a deaf worshipper of Obama, besides being dumb and blind, also. The throngs of initial Hillary supporters still feel that way, as do the attentive initial supporters of Obama who have witnessed his failed presidency over the last almost 4 years.

Hi! I am just blogging for fun. That is going to
be a large inflationary light bill...8 times 16
dollars by the year 2015. Wait until you see what
the price of gas does for your automobile. The pumps run on electriciy. If the gas stations have
their light bills raised by 16 times, they will have to pass on the light bills to automobile gas
customers! Regular gas costs $4.29 in California!
Here, in Pennsylvania, regular gas costs $3.59 per
gallon! That is in my hometown in Northeastern
Pennsylvania. Someone commented about a redistribution of wealth...Well that is what the year of Jubilee is about in the Jewish Faith!
God told the Jews that every 7 years the Jews were
to distribute all the money in Israel equally
among the people, because in 7 years all the money
went back to the rich! Jubilee anyone?
I have said enough...This might not get posted.

Bottom fell out in 2008, Homer didn't vote for anyone in office at that time or in the years for 2001-2008 except for Charlie Dent(R). If you can pin it on him, ya got me. We have 2 rooms available for 2 adults and the 3 cats, and I suppose we could turn the 2 car garage into a 1 car and add an addititional bedroom for the 3rd adult.

Maybe this will be so simple YOU can get it! We have had other recessions and the leaders were BRIGHT enough to hold down spending.

HOW did you miss the fact that the ONLY time the budget has gone over 23.5% was WW2?

The bottom line is there was stimulus bills, car bailouts, etc in 2009 and OBAMA has not cut back spending since then to pre-stimulus baseline.

SO what if the Rep has the house? We all know the Senate DEMS has refused to pass a budget in 3 years which directly correlates with the BUDGET not being trimmed back from the hundred of billions of spending that occur with the stimulus bills. DEMS are being very purposeful in NOT having a budget.

In the end you offered no justification for the overspending.

Ok, Galt? you keep saying it's the economy. Well if one would judge by our rightwingers on here, how many have been talking about abortion? It's not the economy; it's gay marriage and abortion that keeps you people going. Controlling other peoples lives is what keeps you voting. Not the economy.
It's the economy, stupid (except for the Bible folk)!

As of fall 2011 there was $220 billion of public employee pension funds invested in private equity firms. Guess SEIU and the AFL-CIO better vote for Romney to protect their interests from Obama. Or are they that stupid? My answer would be yes.

Just 41% now say they support abortion.
Y'all are so gullible, its how they frame the questions. Look at the top graph, you'll see that the number of people in favor of abortion being legal in certain circumstances is the same today as it was when the poll started in 1975: 52%. Self-identifying as "pro-life" clearly doesn't put you into the 20% nutcase category which is also the same now as in 1975:

<quoted text>'Unraveling the spending cuts should do the trick: Taxmageddon is a misnomer, says David Dayen at Firedoglake. The automatic cuts in defense and social spending under the debt-reduction deal "would hit growth much harder than the taxes." Congress can prevent the worst-case scenario by disarming the trigger that will force these automatic cuts. And letting the Bush tax cuts expire could be a good thing, because Congress could then pass "a different set of 'Obama tax cuts'" that make the wealthy pay more, help the middle class, and prevent a new recession.'

They are more concerned about the spending cuts, quit being a shill for the rich.

"moron"
Yup, things are grate;
- Unemployment over 8% for 39 straight months, all this after president nobama promised the rate would not hit 8% if his stimulus plan was passed
- Home sales and new home starts at near record lows
- Anemic GNP growth
- Fewer Americans working today since president nobama took office
- Fewer American's paying Federal Income tax
- More American's on food stamps
- Soaring deficit spending, president nobama has added more to the foreign debt in 3 1/2 years than Bush added in 8 years
- Unprovoked bombing of Libya
- Gitmo still open, one of president nobama's promises, he promised to close it, he did not he lied
- Another president nobama lie, he promised to have the most transparent presidency ever, he lied, hell he wont even release his college grades, his thesis, his birth certificate
- Another lie from president nobama, he stated while running for the presidency he believed marriage was between one man and one woman, he evolved, flip flopped, now marriage can be between two men or two women
Only a "moron" would support the loser nobama. No surprize you are a "moron".
