On Debt and Spending, Karl Rove Forgot George W. Bush

KARL ROVE HAS SOME nerve talking about the national debt under Pres. Obama.

One more time with feeling, George W. Bush outspent Barack Obama $5.07 TRILLION to $1.44 TRILLION.

If that’s not enough, then there’s this chart from TPM, who calls it a “gobsmacking” drop in government spending under Pres. Obama.

    Check it out, government spending is down since President Obama has been in office. Karl Rove, the GOP and the rest of the conservative establishment is and has been lying. Nearly all the increase in the national debt under President Obama is due to the drop-off in tax revenue, which in turn is due to the Bush crash! The facts are a bitch!

    Yep, government spending drops at the end of 2010, and sure enough the economy goes into the tank a year and a half later. I’m surprised it took that long, but if you know anything about economics, you’d have to be an idiot not to see this coming. If it weren’t for that bump late in 2011, we’d have seen falling employment in the BLS numbers six months ago, at least.
