Obama Whines About Inheritance

15 02 2010

Bobs A's public notice to Obama lovers.

Bob A. from Florida wrote this wonderful little piece and I wanted to share with everyone.

I’m Sick of “Inherited” 

The Washington Post babbled again today about Obama inheriting a huge deficit from Bush, blah blah blah.  Amazingly enough, a lot of people swallow this nonsense.

 So once more, I’ll try a short civics lesson.

Budgets do not come from the White House.  They come from Congress, and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democratic Party.  They controlled the budget process for FY 2008 and FY 2009, as well as FY 2010 and FY 2011.  In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush somewhat belatedly got tough on spending increases.  For FY 2009, though, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office.  At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the FY 2009 budgets.

And where was Barack Obama during this time?  He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete FY 2009.
Let’s remember what the deficits looked like during that period:
If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the FY 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets.  That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending.  After that, Democrats in   Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets.  If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself.
In a nutshell,  what Obama is saying is I inherited a deficit that I voted for and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since January 20th.

P.S. Bob, I was probably imagining you writing this.

No problem Gio.

Is it just me or did the graph not come up?

This is a weird one. When I copied the graph it loaded beautifully with the entire page, but for some reason it won’t show anymore. Ok, so I figure it’s because I linked it right from the original site and it timed-out or something. So that left me with downloading the pic to my PC and then loading up to the blog. As you can tell, nothing has worked.

Any brainiacs out there that can help would be appreciated.

I wracked my brain trying to get the graph to copy and paste it in a reply but so far no luck. I also tried looking for the graph somewhere else online but haven’t found it yet.

Bob,

Don’t lose any sleep over it. If you happen to figure it out, please let me know. If not, don’t worry about it.

P.S. Just wondering… has anyone from the county or the town you live in said anything about your yard sign?

Gio,

Many people have come by and taken pictures and have had nothing but positive responses about it. No city or county gov’t has said anything to me about it.

I live in a heavily conservative area. Thank God!

Found the graph in an extended version at this website; http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=124832
the graph is taken from Feb. 2nd issue of Congressional Quarterly Today.

Well, most informed people know this. OTOH, you’ve got the sheeple (some don’t even know who Pelosi is) that don’t let facts get in the way of their feelings…

DCG,

C’mon, do you know how few “informed people” we have in this country? My guess would be 34 people.

I’m going to go a little higher…today at protest in Olympia (re: what the bas*ards did last week in WA ST), they had about 3,000 people. I’m praying that people are getting more informed…just sorry it took soo long!
