Is Romney a bold face liar when he claims Obama's federal spending is unprecedented?


The facts are as follows: Reagan '82 - 85 federal spending was 8.7 and 86 - 89 4.9. Bush I 5.4 and Bush II 7.3 - 8.2. Clinton was 3.2 - 3.9 and Obama 1.4 on government spending. Without talking about Obama and simply answering the question at hand...is Mitt Romney lying about federal spending?

    More than his share. Most politicians will do almost anything to get elected and lying is part of the equation!

    The figures presented are the percentages of annualized growth of federal spending as presented by the Wall Street Journal on May 22, 2012. Fact: Gov't spending under Obama is slower than anytime in the last 60 yrs., including the stimulus bill.

    All politicians past, present and future in any party are liars. Obama is probably the top liar of all and he has nothing but contempt for our constitution and anyone that does not agree with him is labeled a racist regardless of color.
