I don't believe that they are covering the expenses of the 2 wars that Bush didn't put into his budget, nor the big medicare give-away, and the tax break for the rich.
So what do you think of the Pinocchios Habee?
I think there's plenty of blame to go around. I hold Bush partially responsible, but I agree with WaPo's findings that when Obama places 90% of the blame on W, the POTUS is being dishonest. Romney and Obama have both told some whoppers, and both have been admonished by WaPo fact-checkers.
Thank you. Your opinion won't be shared by most here.
Agreed, that one was definitely a lie or at best a pretty dumb mistake which is disappointing, it's been a long time since we had a candidate or president who wasn't disappointing in my view. *sigh*
Very good point:
From OP link
Now one could argue, as Obama’s defenders do, that his policies to combat the recession were intended to be temporary. But he has also supported permanently extending the Bush tax cuts for Americans making less than $250,000, which by itself will shrink federal revenues for years to come. That means these are no longer Bush’s tax cuts, but Obama’s.
So now we are against tax cuts, but only for those making under $250,000? It's hard to keep up.
I am not against the tax cuts. Obama needs to take responsibility for continuing them, it is a good thing, why is he ashamed?
Does he just have a natural tendency to avoid responsibility for his actions, then to take responsibility for the actions of others?
Those tax cuts can no longer be called the Bush tax cuts, doing so would be a falsehood.

Question. If the Bush-era tax cuts were so popular and such the "economic reality" as it's being coined, then why did Obama fail to see this until recently. Where was his voice in favor of the Bush...

Republicans have repeated the lie that tax cuts are always good for the economy so often that all of Washington seems absolutely convinced that it's true. The conventional wisdom is so established on this that all a...
