It’s enough to make even the most ardent Obama cynic scratch his head in confusion.
Amidst all the cries of Barack Obama being the most prolific big government spender the nation has ever suffered, Marketwatch is reporting that our president has actually been tighter with a buck than any United States president since Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Who knew?

Geez, Q, don't bring in the race card. Isn't it enough to have Republicans and Democrats at each others throats? Do you have to promote race wars too?

Not this idiocy again?

So if all of the spending falls to Bush, is the recovery that Obama always takes credit for really the Bush Recovery?

That's what liberals do. They blame Bush and promote racial division.

You just don't get it yet!  I hope this helps.

Obama will win a second term as President.  I explained why in my post titled, "Congrats to Pres. Obama on his reelection".

Now let me give you some of the reasons why he will become the "greatest" president ever.  His knowledge of constitutional law and current law allows him the power to act as head of state and unilaterally enact policies that are helpful to all americans and eliminate provisions in current law that reduce freedoms and discriminate against the poor and immigrant class.  Congress is on autopilot and is not needed to do what Obama needs to do to put this country on a new and compassionate path.

It was the Bush budget passed during the financial crisis of October 2008 that contained budgetary fixes for the crisis.  When Obama and Harry Reid saw this opportunity, they took it.  In 2009, 2010 and 2011, congress simply passed a continuing resolution, which just renewed Bush's budget for a year each time.  There has been no "new" budget since the fall of 2008.  Reid will not allow it.  This is Obama's great scheme to keep Bush's budget year after year (which still contains lots of extra crisis money) and apply most of it to redistribute wealth to the poor and needy.

Obama will not let the Republicans dictate any new budget that reduces spending by even a dime.  We are on the path to real social justice and compassion.

Vote Obama or just stay at home.

Pyridium I read your thread and this post and I can't figure you out. You're over the top enthusiasm for taking advantage of help for disability and entitlements and the pride you take in being dependent on the government is laughable and if anything, not gonna persuade any votes. You sound like a caricature of the ultimate trailer trash welfare abusing liberal socialist sheep.
I sense all sarcasm but haven't seen you say otherwise. What's your deal man? You serious?

I have only stated what Pres. Obama has promised and what he has delivered.  We have all seen what it took to pass his healthcare law.  Were we just lucky to have 60 votes in the senate to pass it?  No ObamaCare, No legacy.

Sarcasm?  Everyone here is entitled to their own opinions about the facts.  I have seen nobody discount anything that I have posted.  I try to stay as factual as I can, but maybe my socialistic side tends to show itself too much.

I just wanted to be the first to post Obama's reelection success.

MarketWatch is a subsidiary of Dow Jones, a property of News Corporation. MarketWatch is part of Dow Jones' Consumer Media Group, along with The Wall Street Journal, Barron's, the WSJ.com and affiliated internet properties. Through the Rupert Murdoch-controlled News Corp. ownership, MarketWatch is also affiliated with, among many other global media properties, the New York Post, The Times of London, Fox News Channel and multiple other 20th Century Fox spinoffs, and HarperCollins publishers.

This isn't a 'lib' study. If anything, this documentation of the facts and figures could be said to come from the right wing. This is based on facts. Fact: Obama is the smallest government spender since Eisenhower. End of story.

I hate Obama, but I also hate the lies that are spewed regarding his presidency.

Must be hard for you not using any public roads, not having an education, not having access to ambulances, or security for when you retire.  Well, at least you're not a freeloader!
Rafterman, the premise is simple.  Bush created the situation Obama inherited.  Obama is trying to fix it.  Republicans are running interference to avoid his re-election.  Should I explain again?

Anyway. the thread premise is true, although there are caveats.  Republicans have blocked all new spending and tax increases are off the table.  If Obama had full reigns, who knows what spending would have been like.  It would be misleading to say Obama is solely responsible for it.  By looking at the OP's chart, it looks like Republicans are only against spending when it's someone else doing the spending :P
