In reality, Obama inherited a trillion dollar deficit in a crippling near-depression.
And you wanted him to do what? Eliminate a trillion dollar deficit in two years? Four years?
Do you understand that deficit reduction retards growth? And that slight deficit reduction will only retard growth slowly, while the extreme deficit reduction you'd clearly favor would have been even more devastating?
To pull off the elimination of a trillion dollar deficit in two or four years, you'd almost have to decimate our entitlements, at a time when a ton of people wound up on them at no fault of their own, because of the irresponsible actions of a handful of massively wealthy people.
That's truly, honestly madness.
I favor a less radical, more responsibly gradual approach that picks up steam as our economy does.
Which is what we're getting.
No, no, I never called you stupid. I think you know exactly what you're doing by parroting this stuff.
I was just pointing out while your graph is pretty and all shiny it avoids the real issue of where we really are heading under Obama.
