You are a few months late in this forum, nice try by you though, huh?
Do you, in your wildest dreams, believe this sounds right?
Well, it isn't.
Part of the reason the growth is a little skewed is because of just how much spending went on near the end of the Bush Administration. But yes, the Republicans who yell about Obama being such a big spender are pretty ludicrous. A lot of the growth is due to entitlements that are outside of the normal functions of the Presidency.
You want to talk about how much Bush spent, and how that does not tie into a small government theme, I will be right with you.
My sarcasm is not tied up in the fact that he put this up after it has already been discussed, but more about how he worded it.
Funny to me, sorry, when somebody is so sure they have found some blatantly partisan piece that is right and will prove their devotion to this man is reasoned.
Im pretty sure last time it was brought up it was more like "is this right"?
I'm sorry like tetra mentioned I don't look at this site all too often
But pertaining to the article, I did my research and thebudget numbers mentioned are correct. And the 2009 budget is under bushs watch. What's the dispute? Percentage wise he is rather conservative with his spending increases
Also, right or wrong, if you do not know by now I tend to make anti partisanship posts, I don't know, that's just what I do.
I would like to see a 3rd candidate for sure just in general

To back it up, the administration cites a media report that claims federal spending is rising at the slowest pace since the Eisenhower years.
