    If Obama and the other Dems had an ounce of fight in them, or a testicle in the bunch, they’d be hammering this message constantly: The Republicans are rich cunts who want to enslave you—and here’s the evidence, folks!

    Instead they behave like a bunch of pussies in a back-alley streetfight who think they can “reason” with thugs, instead of doing the right thing, which is the figurative equivilent of wrapping a goddamed piece of re-bar around the head of the nearest guy available, and continuing on down the line until the opposition is moaning and bleeding and wondering what the fuck hit them.

    No wonder they’re getting the shit kicked out of them by the Conserv-o-tards.

    I have no respect for bullies (Republicans) and even less for pussies who don’t fight back against bullies (Democrats.)

      did you ever wonder if it isn’t planned this way? the well-meaning pussies to appeal to the intellectuals and bleeding hearts and the batshit crazy but strong and likeable loons to satiate the ignorant and easily riled.

        And the one group pushes stuff that is batshit insane while the other pushes stuff that is really undesirable but seems reasonable by comparison.

          That’s what you get with a two-party system.

      Only for Obama. I wouldn’t say it’s wayyyyy off. It was pretty close to the actualities for those not named Obama.

    Reagan’s the clear winner when judged by percentage increase, but to be fair he almost tripled what was a much smaller initial national debt. Dubya did most of the heavy lifting in absolute dollars, doubling a much larger debt. I’m giving the win to the decider so far. Obama better start making it rain up in here if he hopes to compete.

    Alright, but to be honest, the last 10 times we lowered taxes and increased spending may have been flukes. Let’s try that again and see what happens to the debt, I bet it goes down if we pray enough.

    Seriously, who made up this BS and based on what? According to the US Congressional Budget office, Clinton spent -9% of GDP and Bush Jr. spent 20% in his second term, less than Reagan. Looks like Disinfo.com is full of Disinfo.

    Come on….. I expect so much more than a Fox News level professionalism or lack thereof when I come to this site….. guess I’m naive…… this chart was proven to be bullshit months ago and has been again today because of morons recirculating it.  Is there anybody there who’s capable of doing even a casual Google search??

    I have to agree with the complaints below (or above or however this works out). I expect more from Disinformation than a rehash of a chart that has been plastered all over social media, when just a Google check away you could find that it has been discredited.

      It’s my impression Neil that people post things of this sort on Disinfo so WE can do just that, sort it out, talk about it. If there is a problem you are aware of with the chart then post it. If you think the chart is correct then post why you think that too. I’m not aware of any restrictions about that except try and keep it civil. What you’re suggesting is that some subject shouldn’t be spoken about at all because it was debunked somewhere else. Wha wha whaaaat? In my opinion that makes it more interesting to talk about. Hey look, it’s a pretty sharp crowd here, we can handle a little discussion about this “disinformation”.

  18. Azwashman September 29, 2011 at 10:47 pm #

    If you want to know if this is accurate or not use basic math. With 2 years of Obama spend at a 1.5 Trillion deficit per year the comes to 3 Trillion. When Bush left if you include his 08 budget the deficit was 11 trillion. Now 10% of 11 Trillion is 1.1 Trillion. So that means Obama is more 27% not 16%. Because they are talking about the % not the dollars that Obama has added to the deficit.

    Ahh, playing with percentages. Let’s see 100% of $100. = 1% of $10,000.

    I doubt the president is even that influential in deciding how much gets spent. No one ever looks a the FED and the revolving doors at its entrance. The office of the President is a puppet, a shiny distraction to fool the dumb massed who instincively peg the blame/praise on the pseudo-alpha primate in charge. When has a president in recent history told the FED or Wallstreet ‘NO!”?…..

    The money party elects the Republicrats, not the masses.

    the guise of running as a fiscally conservative candidate basically allows you to spend buttloads of money when you do get elected, where liberal candidates, when elected, have to remain cautious in order to stay cool with the public.  kinda like how disney gets the jonas brothers to tout abstinence so it can sell its music and tv shows with tons of sex appeal for all the little youngins

    I missed the initial discussion on this, but do any of you know math?  I love graphs like this they are so deceiving and showing you whatever the agenda of the graph “poster” wants you to see.  Ask why are we given the real values?  Why just percents? Well, given the percents above and then using the last increased total as the starting point for the next POTUS these percents will give you the following, if we start with, for example, $10:  Regan would have increased it by $18.9 gving a total of $28.9.  Bush Sr. would have raised this amount by $15.9 giving the total up to $44.8.  Clinton raised it by $16.6 increasing the total to $61.4.  Bush by $70.6 raising the total to $131.9.  Obama raised it by $21.1 giving the total up to $153.1.  Huh?  Math.  Go figure.  Ha! I made a funny!
