    Forbes: Smallest Govt spender since Eisenhower? Obama.

    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?

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    So if Im understanding this correctly (and I very well may not be), they are basing the spending numbers on a baseline that the previous president set. So basically Obama spent less over the previous guy than any other president. Considering the moron he followed, Im not sure thats a feather in his cap. You dont solve a spending problem by spending just a little more than the other guy.

    I knew it was going to happen. Without fail, someone comes in and blasts the author and ignores the facts. How about some substance Langer...?
