    Sorry,even fact check disagrees with you.And i disagree with them on the amount that BO is responsible for in 2009.

    Im sorry if Im skeptical about something ran by one of Obama's former employers, but I am.

    Once again, the spending proposal submitted by Bush was $400billion less than the one signed by Obama. In addition, some of the stimulus funding levels were made baseline adding further increases. Appeals to authority do not change that.

    Yep,cant trust them CBO numbers.

    the 2009 budget was passed by the 2008 Congress and bush sighed it. It was in effect four months before BO took the oath of office. The first budget that you can pin on BO is the 2010. Sorry but your obtuse defense is going nowhere.

    In addition, some of the stimulus funding levels were made baseline adding further increases.

    Increase?What year?

    And your dancing around in your tutu is fun to look at.

    I know this is hard for you to get. Bush sent a spending resolution to congress, which the House acted on and passed with ammendments and added spending. That spending resolution was sent to Obama for signature after he entered office, along with the the TARP resolutions and later the Stimulus.

    I dont know how you dont get that this causes spending increases. But thats the impasse we are at.

    Yep,cant trust them CBO numbers.
    Figured I would address this. They took the CBO numbers and then interpretted what they meant. Its a decent try but, its still an appeal to authority instead of looking at the mechanics of the budget resolutions. They proved what they wanted to prove. You are just buying what they wanted to prove. Thats been a frequent problem with FactCheck.Org--they have done it so often they pretty much arent a good source anymore.
    And your dancing around in your tutu is fun to look at.
    Stop being asinine. Its boring.
