Horrible… Obama Tells Foolish Supporters: I’m Not Over-Spending… “I’m Running to Pay Down Our Debt”

We’ve heard a lot of dishonest statements from politicians over time.
But this one takes the cake.

Barack Obama told a gullible and dumb Democrat audience tonight,
“I’m running to pay down our debt in a way that’s balanced and responsible.”

Here’s Obama’s version of “balanced and responsible” – Trillion dollar deficits from here to eternity…

(J. Hoft Chart)

Barack Obama added $5 trillion to national debt in a little over 3 years.
A record.

(Heritage)
Soon to be $6 trillion.

Barack Obama and Democrats added over One Trillion Dollars to the annual Federal Budget in the last 4 years.

That’s at least a 30% increase in federal spending in just 3 years.
It’s what Obama calls “balanced and responsible.”

And, of course, the media is going to carry his water for him and continued this blatant lie in their report.
ABC reported:

At a fundraiser for his re-election campaign in Denver tonight, President Obama set out to upend conventional Republican wisdom that his administration has been defined by excessive government spending.

“I’m running to pay down our debt in a way that’s balanced and responsible. After inheriting a $1 trillion deficit, I signed $2 trillion of spending cuts into law,” he told a crowd of donors at the Hyatt Regency. “My opponent won’t admit it, but it’s starting to appear in places, like real liberal outlets, like the Wall Street Journal: Since I’ve been president, federal spending has risen at the lowest pace in nearly 60 years. Think about that.”

Obama was referring to an analysis released this week by Rex Nutting, a reporter for CBS MarketWatch who is also affiliated with the Wall Street Journal. Nutting concluded that Obama has presided over the slowest growth in federal spending in decades.

“Government spending under Obama, including his signature stimulus bill, is rising at a 1.4 percent annualized pace – slower than at any time in nearly 60 years,” Nutting wrote, citing data from the Congressional Budget Office, Office of Management and Budget and an independent financial firm.

“The big surge in federal spending happened in fiscal 2009, before Obama took office. Since then, spending growth has been relatively flat,” he wrote. “Over Obama’s four budget years, federal spending is on track to rise from $3.52 trillion to $3.58 trillion, an annualized increase of just 0.4 percent. There has been no huge increase in spending under the current president, despite what you hear.”

The Enterprise Blog has the correct figures.

If Americans are stupid enough to believe this hogwash then we deserve no better than liar Barack Obama. Tonight’s speech was so dishonest it was insulting.

    Do you just label anything you don’t like as a lie, do you honestly look things up yourself? Do you understand what annualized figures are, do you know how the CBO works? I honestly don’t understand the deep personalized hatred and ugliness that I see on this site. Why would anyone want to go back to the Bush economic policies? Do you have any idea how much revenue the bush tax cuts are adding to the deficit?

    Honestly, I’m confused. Can someone please explain how a responsible person can say

    ‘“Government spending under Obama, including his signature stimulus bill, is rising at a 1.4 percent annualized pace – slower than at any time in nearly 60 years,” Nutting wrote, citing data from the Congressional Budget Office, Office of Management and Budget and an independent financial firm.’

    Baffled, Peter Warner.

    Hahahaha! Oh god, Barry’s a trip.

  • Multitude

    oh and Peter Warner, you’re missing the obvious. About 51% of the population doesn’t actually think nor does it evaluate media sources that may challenge the produced image they are programmed with. These “folks” as Barack says have their opinions, perspectives and general worldviews produced by the progressive media machine.

    I know it’s beyond incoherent for those outside the Matrix, but you just can’t apply the rationale of reality to such produced persons. Trust me, it’s not intended for you. You’re clearly not a product of the machine, awaiting MSNBC, New York Times or any of the progressive media push-programming sites to deliver your viewpoint for you. Walter Lippman, the founder of the production theory that underpins the model (and a multi-Pulitzer Prize winner for the New York Times himself) realized that critical thinkers like you just wouldn’t get it. This system is for the lazy, ignorant masses that are comfortable with their programming.

    People like you probably fail to understand JournaList and become skeptical at talking points issued to all of the manufactured media. You probably even get annoyed when CNN, NYTimes, MSNBC, ABC, Huffington Post and others start parroting the exact same lines. Your problem is that you’re outside the production, which is sort of like being back stage in a Potemkin Village. You see that the buildings are all farce and the construction makes absolutely no sense. But please understand, to the progressive voters, they like this mirage. It allows them to believe that Barack and the Progressive Machine are going to take care of them, so that they can go boating, drinking, under-investing in retirement, joining their union and putting a nickle into a pension fund believing they can retire at 45 and make $100K a year.

    You can’t compete with their desire, Peter. That alone keeps the 2×4 walls of the Progressive Potemkin Village propped up.

    First, I would like to comment on this part — And, of course, the media is going to carry his water for him and continued this blatant lie in their report. ——- Why don’t you call it what it really is? Which is FRAUD and I mean the actual criminal definition of the word.
    Definition of FRAUD
    1 a : deceit, trickery; specifically : intentional perversion of truth in order to induce another to part with something of value or to surrender a legal right b : an act of deceiving or misrepresenting
    http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/fraud

    Second, post #6 Peter Warner, They attributed all of the 2009 spending to Bush, including the stimulus bill [close to 1 trillion] also the omnibus bill Obama signed [which was 400 Billion] and many many others. That is how they came up with this absolute crap of a study. Check out Ann Coulter’s column for today [Wednesday] she explains it well. http://www.anncoulter.com/columns/2012-05-23.html#read_more

    The graph is scaled in units that are not explained. I suspect the average non quantitative reader would not know what they are looking at or whose culpable policies it is incriminating. There is a Pelosi produced graph that leaves a totally different impression, and the fallacy of it will need to be dealt with since it will certainly get more play than this one.

    My may be a liar – but I am a rich liar!

    Let me be clear, I am running up your debt so that my cronies can get paid and I will stay in power. It’s that simple!

    If I hire another 300 Czars at $248,000 per year and give each one a chauffeur driven limousine plus a free gas card, it will cost about 300 million dollars more per year.

    Better yet, the paper work and red tape these Czars generate will be 10 times that amount – it will be trillions of dollars! It takes a lot of money to spend other people’s money!

    Here is what I am doing, I am spending $2 trillion dollars after seeing the one trillion dollars spent so quickly – very few votes were bought.

    Spending other people’s money with speed are the keys to success. Heck, the stupid Tax payer did not have time blink before another $2 trillion went on their collective credit card. Just image in four more years I will have heaped on $9.2 Trillion to $10.6 Trillion of debt!

    If I can continue to spend $10 trillion and raise gas prices to $10 per gallon I can finally bankrupt America.

    Inflation will go through the roof! Each person will have to carry two grocery bags full of one-hundred dollar bills just to by one bag of groceries! Buying gas tank will be grossly expensive. That’s Hope and Change at work. But, I will need four more years to do the job.

    Four more years!

    Four more years!

    “Do you have any idea how much revenue the bush tax cuts are adding to the deficit?”

    Idiot. (Or is it “Liar”?) Federal income tax receipts went UP, and the federal deficit began going DOWN, after the Bush tax cuts took effect.

  • Befuddled

    (CBS News) The National Debt has now increased more during President Obama’s three years and two months in office than it did during 8 years of the George W. Bush presidency.
    ——-
    Are you going to believe your lying ears or Obama.It’s not about the economy,stupid.Even if it was,it would still be Bush’s fault. From Chicago to California,there must have been a Republican that “got us into this mess.” No,Obama isn’t the one to blame nor a Democrat. This would be unfathomable. All this time,Since 2006 when Dems had regained full control,it’s been the Republicans who have been spending recklessly.

    Remember this gem from when Democrats took control in 2006:
    “The days of the do-nothing Congress are over,” declared Democratic Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada, in line to become majority leader, adding that Americans spoke “clearly and decisively in favor of Democrats leading this country in a new direction.”

    MarketWatch rewrites history …

    WASHINGTON (MarketWatch)
    But it didn’t happen. Although there was a big stimulus bill under Obama, federal spending is rising at the slowest pace since Dwight Eisenhower brought the Korean War to an end in the 1950s.
    Even hapless Herbert Hoover managed to increase spending more than Obama has.
    Here are the facts, according to the official government statistics:
    • In the 2009 fiscal year — the last of George W. Bush’s presidency — federal spending rose by 17.9% from $2.98 trillion to $3.52 trillion. Check the official numbers at the Office of Management and Budget.

    Except the FY 2009 budget wasn’t Bush’s, the Congress held it up with continuing resolutions until Obama was sworn in

  • Capitalist Infidel

    I can’t believe he said he “inherited a 1 trillion dollar deficit.” It’s not that hard to look up. At the end of 2008 the deficit was 450 billion. Not anywhere near 1 trillion. What a brazen liar!

  • donh

    This is like applauding a serial bank robber because he keeps recycling the same paper note to the teller demanding $1000…How lucky we are he doesn’t raise the note another $100 with each robbery. Yeah just keep giving me that cold cool trillion every year, and I won’t ask for any more…Ain’t I a Saint ?…….NO ! We need a 30%- 50% CUT in spending.

  • klaffner

    If ever there was an example of numbers don’t like but liars use numbers, this is it. $800 billion tarp (at the end of Bush’s term) was followed by $900 billion stimulus at the very beginning of Obama’s admin (maybe 3 months apart). These were ’emergency’ measures. If Obama was responsible, spending would have gone down dramatically in the following fiscal year. BUT….Obama and his Dem majorities took that new emergency spending level and maintained it with ongoing spending resolutions.

  • Jerry C

    @ #30 klaffner

    900 billion dollar stimulus was probably 7 TRILLION.

    One word: Anti-Christ.

  • MT Geoff

    There is this much truth in the statement about growth: after establishing a 30%-ish hike in one year, Obama and the Enablers have maintained spending at nearly the same level.
    Now that’s like saying, “I went from three bottles of whiskey a day to four, but I haven’t increased since then.” It still represents a ridiculous problem.
    There are two elements to solving our various government fiscal problems and they are closely related: reducing spending and increasing revenues. Reductions in spending will shift resources from where politicians want them to where the economy needs them and will contribute to economic growth — which will increase revenues. A lower tax-rate structure will also increase economic growth and revenues, as demonstrated so many times in the last two centuries.
    Two things are guaranteed to slow economic growth and reduce revenues: more government meddling in the economy and higher tax rates.
    As a bonus, a nation with less government interference and less spending is also a nation more free.

  • Patty

    We have seen that the majority of Obama’s time in office is campaigning. Rubio is right, that isn’t how this government or president should be running this nation.

    Rubio has been working harder in his short time as senator than Obama has in all his time in Politics. We need a leader. We need a person who will not separate American into pockets of humans who are depressed already and depend on Obama to help them. Government is depressing them because they believe Obama will give them money, actual money!!

    Each person is an individual but we are Americans, too and we are equals. Obama is pitting one culture against another. His dialect even changes when he speaks to his Black audiences.

    He, himself wages Wars between Women, Church, and Classes. He hasn’t done a thing for anyone when it comes to jobs and if anything he has spent more money on Fail Green projects, that have gone bankrupt.
    We need a person with values and a president who has our values and needs as his first priority and not someone who insist on spreading the Wealth and attacks the Wealthy job creators on a daily basis. And who works with his contributors because of their donations. Favoritism, why would he do this so openly?

    We need someone to work in Washington more than on the road campaigning day after day. We need respect back in the White House.

    Americans are sick of the do nothing government, all they have done is spending us into more debt. The Debt is a National Security Risk and we have Obama to thank. Americans are becoming more and more afraid if this pattern continues. We are up against another DOWNGRADE.

    We do need a Business mind, this was needed day one in Washington and not lawyers and academia. You see, things aren’t working well for Obama, you can’t spread the wealth, you can’t attack those who create jobs without a dire ending.

    And the debt clock is ticking and so is his campaign, so, he pulls a rabbit, another lie, out of his hat. Why? same reason as always, he is afraid to lose and lose he will, because this is no way to run this nation.

  • Patty

    And who works with his contributors because of their donations. Favoritism, why would he do this so openly?

    Obama’s hope and change has run off the cliff.

    He is briefed each day by Axelrod. Axelrod may be out of a job too. The Bain attacks on Romney are nauseating. So, now, they are pulling another strategy out of their bag of Tricks.

    Will this work, again, we know the answer we see the debt and we know about the spending. So, this is just another hair brain idea.

    Obama, the civil rights promoter. Problem with that is, whose. Americans black, white and others have seen their right slip away. We are told more under Obama what we should do than any president, including Carter.

    Obama was born too late to march in the King Marches. He was devastated when someone told him, Barack the right movement is over.

    This didn’t matter and we have seen the instances when Obama just had to dip his toe into the civil right thing a time or two.

    Gates and Martin. These two instances unveiled the true Obama. And in both cases Obama will not be question by the liberal media or torn down. I am of the Opinion that some gave Obama a pass when that beer summit, as idiotic as it was, smoothed over Obama interfering in something he shouldn’t have.

    Now, we have Trayvon Martin witnesses backtracking. And like Megyn Kelly said, Zimmerman needs a smart attorney who will run a mac truck through their changing their statements.

    http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2012/05/an_undergraduate_takes-down_paul_krugman.html

    But there is another issue and that paper accepts anything and statistics can make anything look like it correlates. .need to use common sense to know what the dependent variable vs the independent variable. . . meaning what drives the equation. . .

    In this case, one would expect FAST growing economies to increase their debt faster in anticipation of where they see their GDP going. . .

    it is like when a person starts a new job or gets a promotion and decides to go from renting an apartment to buying a house so their mortgage (debt) will rise faster than their income. . . but over the long run, if they kept increasing debt, they would be bankrupt.

    Since Obama has only die-hard academics on his staff. . no one has real world common sense. .
    hopefully Romney does. . .

    THE BIGGEST SPENDER OF ALL!!!

    President Bush was criticized for spending too much and being unwilling to use the veto pen. He and the Republican Congress moved against conservative principles and enacted another social program and created an educational program that was costly and didn’t get at the root causes of our ineffective educational system. Overall the Bush administration was no worse than previous administrations of both parties. He and the Republican Congress did limit spending in the same ratios to GDP as all of the preceding presidents. (An exception being the WWII years). As we are now painfully discovering none of the efforts of previous leaders have resulted in sound money management for our nation.

    What about President Obama? Has he been responsible with the people’s money?

    According to White House Press Secretary Jay Carney he has:

    “I simply make the point, as an editor might say, to check it out; do not buy into the BS that you hear about spending and fiscal constraint with regard to this administration. I think doing so is a sign of sloth and laziness.”

    “BS”? BS? BS is this lame attempt to pull the wool over the eyes of the American public!

    The Presidents record speaks for itself. He has spent like a maniac on steroids and given the condition of the country following the crash his spending is egregiously irresponsible. There is no way this administration can say it has spent within reason even by the standards of previous presidents!

    But we shouldn’t be surprised. President Obama told us he intended to spend a lot of taxpayer money as president. He told us he wanted to spread the wealth even before he was elected. He quickly showed us after the election that he was willing to hold to his spending and redistribution agenda even though the country was in free fall financially. With businesses failing and citizens losing jobs, savings, and homes new revenues to the federal government were not keeping pace. The Presidential wallet was empty but the President shrugged and put his big spending agenda on the country’s credit card. The president gave little thought to sound money management principles:

    When he spent taxpayer money to bail out GM he made sure union jobs were saved but he put a lot of small support and retail businesses out of business and he fleeced the bond holders in the process. (Isn’t that what he faults Romney for at Bain?)

    When he spent taxpayer money to “save” public employee jobs he simply kicked the can down the road, he denied the use of that money in the private sector to create new jobs and promote overall recovery, and he added to the debt.

    When he spent on companies like Solyndra he not only spent taxpayer money in a company that was said to be a bad risk, he again engaged in picking winners and losers…his green efforts corresponding with efforts to shut down oil and coal. Both resulted in lost jobs, lost revenue, and added debt.

    Obama’s high times spending resulted in nothing but extended misery and a deeper hole. He has made our debt skyrocket ($15.74 trillion as I write). Unemployment has remained very high. Businesses are hurting and stalled or gone forever. As if to add salt to America’s deep wound the President proposed, cheered on, and passed another big expensive social program, Obamacare, ensuring that future debt and the cost of healthcare and insurance will explode even more.

    This is a terrible fiscal record, but just how bad is it?

    Bill Clinton the post porn money Crab!!

    Just hours after posing with two beautiful porn stars, Bill Clinton got on his knees — and begged thousands of people for money … all in the name of Barack Obama.

    It’s the 21st century way of soliciting campaign funds — sending a desperately-worded email to masses of people across the country … in this case, people who’ve subscribed to Barack Obama’s newsletter.

    He writes, “I’ve been in President Obama’s shoes before — less than six months to go before an election to let you finish what you started. It was tough enough back then, but this election is going to be tougher.”

    Bill goes on to ask for campaign donations — and the pitch … donating automatically enters you in a lottery to win a trip to NYC with Bill and POTUS, where you’ll attend Obama’s upcoming “Barack on Broadway” event (a total estimated retail value of $3,300). The MO is the same as the Clooney fundraiser — only 2 people will win.

    Under Obama: 30 Worst Months of Employment in the Past 25 Years

    The federal government’s Bureau of Labor Statistics publishes monthly tallies for the employment-population ratio. That stat shows something rather straightforward: Among those who are living in America and are free to pursue employment, what percentage are employed? (The bureau excludes those who are under 16 years old, are active-duty military, or are — in the bureau’s own words — “inmates of institutions (for example, penal and mental facilities, homes for the aged),” from its tallies.)
    Barack Obama

    Over the past quarter of a century (a total of 300 months), dating back to May 1987 and the Reagan administration, here are the 30 worst months (that is, the bottom 10 percent) for the employment-population ratio, along with the president who happened to be in office at that particular time (scroll down to the see the list): {..}

    In fact, the worst non-Obama month in the past 25 years was December 2008, when the employment-population ratio was 61.0 percent under George W. Bush. Comparatively, Obama’s best month to date (not counting January 2009, when he entered midstream) was his first, February 2009, when the employment-population ratio was 60.3 percent. In other words, over the past 25 years, the worst month under any other president has beaten the best month under Obama.

    The left does not live in the real world. If the budget does not increase each year as much as they would like, they call that a budget cut. It is Democratic double speak. Democrats believe that every dollar in the US economy belongs to Obama. Republican believe that money belongs to those who earn it. The left and right come from two different planets.

    USA Today: Real FY2012 deficit is … $5 trillion

    {..}
    Keep the real deficit number in mind when politicians like Harry Reid insist that there is no entitlement crisis. And keep this in mind the next time members of Congress thunder about the need to pass more regulation in the private sector, too.

    So, now this is his new tactic. Telling America he needs a Second term to bring the debt down.

    Why is it now that he is concerned about the Debt. FOR HIS OWN SELFISH AND EGOTISTICAL REASONS.

    He is doing what he did in the Elections of 08, he lies and he is trying to get his mojo back.

    He cannot be re-elected because we are going over a cliff each day he is in office.

    Soon, I expect a man claiming to be blind to be healed by Obama and the crowd will go crazy believing it all to be true.

  • ‘At a fundraiser for his re-election campaign in Denver tonight, President Obama set out to upend conventional Republican wisdom that his administration has been defined by excessive government spending.’

    It’s actually sad to think anyone would be so ignorant to believe President Obama is in any way interested in responsibly managing our nation’s debt.

    That was my polite reponse. I’ll reserve my less than polite response fo another day. Until then it is obvious liberals have reaffirmed their ‘tax and spend’ legacy. Minus RINOs Republicans have largely repaired their reputation, circa 2006, for being as fiscally irresponsible as the Dems
