Just Nuts… Obama Now Blames His Trillion Dollar Deficits on Bush Tax Cuts

This doesn’t even make sense.
But don’t wait for the Democrat-media complex to point it out… They won’t.

Barack Obama is the first US president in history to run four straight years of trillion dollar deficits.
No one has come close to that record.

(J. Hoft Chart)

Today Barack Obama blamed his four years of trillion dollar deficits on the Bush tax cuts.
From the president’s Weekly Address:

You see, Republicans in Congress and their nominee for President believe that the best way to create prosperity in America is to let it trickle down from the top. They believe that if our country spends trillions more on tax cuts for the wealthy, we’ll somehow create jobs – even if we have to pay for it by gutting things like education and training and by raising middle-class taxes.

They’re wrong. And I know they’re wrong because we already tried it that way for most of the last decade. It didn’t work. We’re still paying for trillions of dollars in tax cuts that benefitted the wealthiest Americans more than anyone else; tax cuts that didn’t lead to the middle class jobs or higher wages we were promised and that helped take us from record surpluses to record deficits.

And, of course, he’ll get away with these completely inaccurate statements.

    You are a fraud and you never did a thing. You are a communist and rely on the ignorant pathetic American public. You are the face of an international agenda to destroy the United States. Keep watching American Idol you stupid Americans. Are you gonna re-elect a racist communist again? You idiot fools.

    O knows his base and they will eat all of his words up like it is the greatest wisdom spoken in the history of man.
    I was at a family wedding last week and one of my nephews who is a lawyer and will be attending medical school this fall to also get his MD still believes every single lie that comes from O’s lips. It astounded me the passion this person, who is 28, has for the POTUS. I would have thought that by now he would have grown a brain but no he is only book smart with absolutely zero common sense. Poor fella.

  • Larkin

    Right, barry. Instead of “trickle down”, we should try “trickle up” for a while. Let all those welfare recipients and food stamp folks invest their government funds to create jobs.

    I’m sure that will work just fine.

  • David

    People don’t know how government works if they think the 2009 budget was Obama’s.

  • mg4us

    Obama is the biggest Loser and showcase example of Affirmative Action on Steroids Gone Astray!!!!

    Obama cannot man up and accept responsibility.

    “You didn’t build that!” radical socialism drives his thoughts and actions, even blaming others for his failure!

    Obama & his use of “I”
    Ill-prepared to be president.

    OBAMA – – One Big Ass Mistake America!

    NObama in NOvember . . .Operation Clean Flush

HE IS BUILDING HIS PRESIDENCY ON THE BACKS OF OUR CHILDREN!!! its not about political lines ppl, its abt common sense and decency, both of which are teetering on extinction!

  • pink tie Republican

    Does Congress have anything to say about spending money? Yes Choomboy is a radical socialist out to spend us into oblivion, but he cannot do it alone.

  • Spider

    49% of America is as ignorant of economics and government budgets as King O.

    So the other 51% better all vote.

  • kato

    If Subprime really believes what he’s saying, then he belongs in the same mental hospital as Jesse Jackson, Jr.

    He certainly has proven that the parasite classes will accept anything he says, just as long as the Obama Money keeps a-coming.

    Perhaps Choom the Liar-In-Chief, could explain the various departments that got radically increased budgets starting when the Democrats obtained (by hook and by crook – remember Franken?) control of Congress.

    From 2007, when Republicans had control,
    to 2011, when the Dems still don’t even produce a budget:

    We have been subjected to the federal government
    fattening itself off of our labors to the tune of over 30%
    while our income,wages, and net worth have fallen.

    Dept of Agriculture – – 65% (78% for FY 2012)
    Dept of Commerce – – 53% (75% for FY 2012)
    Dept of Defense–Military Programs – – 28%
    Dept of Education – – -1%
    Dept of Energy – – 56% (They’ve spent more but let us do less…)
    Dept of Health and Human Services – – 33%
    Dept of Homeland Security – – 17% (54% for FY 2012)
    Dept of Housing and Urban Development – – 25% (They need and deserve it…) /s
    Dept of the Interior – – 29$
    Dept of Justice – – 31% (along with a change in mission to Dept of Partisan Injustice)
    Dept of Labor – – 178% (?) (The figure is real, but for what?)
    Dept of State – – 77% (Reset – to Smart Diplomacy!) (118% for FY 2012)
    Dept of Transportation – – 25%
    Dept of the Treasury – – 9% ( Hmm, so it costs more to take more…)
    Dept of Veterans Affairs – – 74%

    All done with additional borrowing. All should be UNdone.

    The federal government is out of control and the politicians are insane.

    “People don’t know how government works if they think the 2009 budget was Obama’s.”

    Congress went Democrat in 2006. The FY 2008 budget is theirs.

    One of Bush’s great mistakes was allowing those increases.

  • Swifty

    The Bush tax cuts expired a while back. I’m sure Bush hasn’t renewed them.

  • Robert

    Re: #13

    Clarification: The figures are percentage increases from FY 2007 to FY 2011. (Dept of Education is 1% decrease)

    Side A It’s Bush’s Fault.

    Side B Tax Cuts Are Afforded

    If he were honest and if Americans truly are too stupid to know better, he’d have raised taxes over and over regardless of political fallout. It’s the responsible thing, to make sure the government can “afford” to manage us.

    And I know they’re wrong because we already tried it that way for most of the last decade. It didn’t work.

    The highest deficit under Bush was a little under $500 billion. Not quite half a trillion bucks. The trillion dollar-plus deficits began after Obie took office. Whose approach looks more “wrong”?

    This son of a bitch spent three-quarters of a trillion taxpayer dollars and the current unemployment level has been pretty much stuck where it’s at since. Whose approach looks like it “didn’t work”?

  • Limousine Barry

    Let me be clear, you are still paying for my tax increases! They are hidden in clever accounting tricks and increases in debt and gas prices. I expect real inflation to eat you alive!

    Sure, I have handed out billions of dollars to my green cronies and we have record government deficits… which the Taxpayer must pay!

    Al gore is happy! And, so are the 25 green crony corporations who got your tax money and went into bankruptcy! Ha-ha!

    David Axelrod’s Corporation, SEUI, and a multitude of other donkeys are fat dumb and happy. Why upset the 0bama money scam apple cart?

    Give me your money and I can divert it to my cronies who will then kick-back the money to me! That way, we can insure that I am reelected no matter how much money is spent!

    If you like the way I have diverted your money into my campaign – vote for me. Please send $34,999.99 to my campaign before midnight.

    My pig of a bus is smoking oil and David Axelrod has a new scam to inflict upon my California donors. It’s the “Sand Castle” scam. Who cares about my crappy California donors? They always vote for me. David Axelrod say to scam for all they have. My campaign is running out of money. Donate money before I go bankrupt. I cannot answer any more questions. Good day.

  • bigL

    I read thast it would take a human, counting numbers as in 1…2…3… thirty-two thousand years to count to a trillion. That is how much money it is. and Obama and the group has spent 4 maybe five of those.
    Not sustainable. Off the cliff and the congressers that have done this will be living abroad. Caribbean seems to be the bolt-hole du jour.
