    Unfortunately Obama and the leadership of today's Democrat Party plays on the ignorance of their supporters and keep feeding those supporters false information that they want to believe. The fiscal year of the U.S. Runs from October to September thus fiscal year 2009 was October 1, 2008 to September 30, 2009 so as you rightly pointed out there is no way that Obama inherited a 1.3 trillion deficit since deficits are on the yearly budget. This is just one of many lies we have heard from Obama yet his supporters don't seem to care.

    Well, it IS much easier to blame the other guy about the problem rather than actually do what's needed to fix it.

    According to the above,the private sector has added 863,000 jobs so far this year. Not nearly enough but like I said in previous threads, its at least pointed in the right direction….UP.
    Job Creation: Bush vs. Obama - By Veronique de Rugy - The Corner - National Review Online
    Let’s look at the Bureau of Labor Statistics data.

    During the Bush presidency, net total employment went up by 1.08 million jobs. So far, during the Obama presidency, total employment has been reduced by 3.3 million jobs.

    Under Bush, private employment shrank by 673,000 jobs, federal employment grew by 50,000 jobs, and government employment grew by 1,753,000 jobs.

    Under Obama, the private sector has shed some 2.9 million jobs while the federal government has grown by 40,000 (after growing massively, the federal workforce shrank throughout the summer). Total government jobs, however, shrank by 357,000 jobs, mainly because of cuts at the state and local levels.


    Now, we can’t really compare these numbers, because we have eight years of Bush data and only two years of Obama data. That’s why the chart below looks at the average monthly job creation under each president. There were more jobs created monthly under President Bush than under President Obama. Overall, most of the net jobs created under Bush were created in the government; many private sector jobs have been destroyed under Obama; and the number of government jobs has decreased, even though federal employment has grown.


    It's called, looking at the big picture, instead of a snapshot like Pelosi's office did with that chart you posted.

    That your ad-hom does nothing to add credibility to your post - which is otherwise in dire need of assistance.

    Well, it's troubling to people who hate Republicans. How that intersects with the set of people with more than two active brain cells is unclear.

    It sounds like you OK with the current situation(Political power goes to the highest bidder) then? So be it.

    From what I can tell, you are, too, when you find the outcome favorable.

    It -actually- sounds like I'm not going to allow you to pull the conversation away from what I said with your red herring.
