Once Again… Barack Obama Blames Bush for The Deficit He Tripled in One Year

Do Republican governors like being lied to?
Do Republican governors always sit on their hands when they’re being lied to?
Do Republican governors really believe the nation is suffering from a deficit and debt crisis?… If so, why do they sit there as Barack Obama continues to play twisted blame games with them concerning the deficit?

Today Barack Obama once again blamed George W. Bush for the deficit he created… and that grows larger by the year.

Barack Obama tripled the national deficit in his first year in office. His second year in office the deficit was at $1.29 Trillion dollars.  This year he will top it again.
There’s a reason why the state-run media won’t show you this chart.

This chart was updated to reflect the recent news that the deficit this year will reach $1.6 trillion. (The Captain’s Comments)

Barack Obama blamed Bush today for the national deficit that he just tripled in one year.
Transcript via Shallow Nation:

Making these necessary investments would be hard at any time. But it’s that much harder at a time when resources are scarce. After living through a decade of deficits and a historic recession that made them worse, we can’t afford to kick the can down the road any longer. So the budget debate that we’re having is going to be critical here in Washington. And so far, most of it’s been focused almost entirely on how much of annual domestic spending — what in the parlance we all domestic discretionary spending — that we should cut. There’s no doubt that cuts in discretionary spending have to be a part of the answer for deficit reduction.

Here’s a prediction… Obama will blame Bush after he raises the deficit by another $300 billion this year too.

This is not an honest man.
