Facts are stubborn things. The Obama-led Democrats have held the nation’s purse strings for 4 of the last 8 years. It was the Obama-led Democrats which insisted that wasteful spinach farm subsidies and wasteful corn fuel subsidies be included in Iraq war funding bills. This would only make sense if we were sending Popeye to fight the terrorists.
Indeed, Bush’s final budget deficit before the Obama led-Democrats took complete control of spending in 2006 was less than 200 billion and trending downward. In 2007, with the economy still humming along, Democrats complained of the “weak economy” under Bush. And really, who can forget the massive unemployment rate of 4.6%?
