Another Day, Another Lie… Obama Blames His Record Deficit & Debt On Bush Again

In his weekly address this week Barack Obama blamed the Bush Administration for his record defict.
The Hill reported:

“We can meet our fiscal challenge,” the president said. “That’s what the American people sent us here to do. They didn’t send us here to kick our problems down the road. That’s exactly what they don’t like about Washington. They sent us here to work together. They sent us here to get things done.”

Obama sounded a positive note about negotiations over raising the federal government’s debt limit.

“The good news is, we agree on some of the big things,” he said. “We agree that after a decade of racking up deficits and debt, we finally need to get our fiscal house in order.”

Actually, the good news is that the democrat-media complex continues to give him a complete pass when he opens his mouth and lies.
Once again – Here is chart showing the budget deficits over the last decade.
Barack Obama increased the national debt by over $3 trillion in just over 2 years.
Obama tripled the deficit in one year with his failed stimulus plan.

The Obama deficit this year may reach $1.65 trillion. (The Captain’s Comments)

But why not blame Bush?
The state-run media sure isn’t going to say anything.
