Certain news stories are guaranteed to appear in the Liberal mainstream media. One of those is the fiction that “…deficits have gone down during Obama’s tenure…”.
Never mind that the national debt has increased from $10 trillion when George Bush left office to over $19.2 trillion right now — we are still subjected to this kind of blatant propaganda / Lies (emphasis added):
But Americans just don’t get his economic achievements, he [Obama] insisted to the New York Times Magazine last month.
“If you ask the average person on the streets, ‘Have deficits gone down or up under Obama?’ Probably 70% would say they’ve gone up,” Obama said “with some justifiable exasperation,” according to the magazine, because the deficit has declined during his presidency. <Los Angeles Times, link>
The deficit has declined? Obama wants credit for reducing the deficit?
I don’t see a year of decline in the above chart, do you?
Of course not, and Americans know this even in a general sense:
Polls show that a large majority of Americans believe the opposite to be true, setting up a challenge for the White House truth-squadding campaign.
Ha ha, “setting up a challenge for the White house….” What challenge is that, convincing people that Up is really Down?
Not only have we had huge deficits in each year, the total debt at this point is bigger than the entire U.S. economy.
