It'll never cease to amaze me how the side of the fence that calls themselves the "intellectually elite" just eat this crap up like it's their final dinner on death row. Like lobotomized lemmings walking over a cliff.
This time, Dear Leader made the grand claim that he cut spending "by more than $1 Trillion in 2011."
Here's some of the delusion displayed once again on a hack lamestream-media show (because, let's face it, "news" is entertainment these days):
Of course, reality paints a different picture. So does actual MATH, which points to the following (emphasis mine):
According to the White House Office of Management and Budget, federal spending was not cut by $1 trillion in 2011. In fact, in fiscal 2010, federal spending was $3,456,213,000,000. In fiscal 2011, federal spending was $3,603,213,000,000. That was an increase of $147 billion.
Facts, shmacts. The Obama-media is running the show now, minions. We don't need no stinkin' facts.
Kool-Aid. It's what's for liberal lemmings' dinner.
