WH: Obama has demonstrated 'fiscal restraint'
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney insisted to reporters on Air Force One today that President Obama has "demonstrated significant fiscal restraint” and applied a “balanced approach.”
According to the pool report, Carney added that any reporting to the contrary, would just be the result of “sloth and laziness.” Carney cited an article by financial columnist Rex Nutting of MarketWatch, which was also cited by David Axelrod this morning on Twitter.
As AEI's Jim Pethokoukis writes, Nutting arrives at these numbers by assigning 2009 government spending to George W. Bush.
Up is down, Right is left. The Ministry of truth at work folks. Hurry, hurry put down your quarter and see the bearded woman ...
Liberalism is just communism sold by the drink.

I'd really hate to see if he was acting without fiscal restraint

Who in the hell does he think he's fooling?Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:

Where this all from the WH is coming from is from a "Market Watch" article.
Obama spending binge never happened
Commentary: Government outlays rising at slowest pace since 1950s
May 22, 2012|Rex Nutting, MarketWatch <-- Note the date.
WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — Of all the falsehoods told about President Barack Obama, the biggest whopper is the one about his reckless spending spree.
Although there was a big stimulus bill under Obama, federal spending is rising at the slowest pace since Dwight Eisenhower brought the Korean War to an end in the 1950s.
Even hapless Herbert Hoover managed to increase spending more than Obama has.
Infact it sources almost all of '09 spending, including Porkulus 1 & 2, TARP 2, all on Bush's watch.
Then get past the obvious lies in that piece.
Next day, Tingles hops on PMSNBC and parrots it him self.
CHRIS MATTHEWS: Not true. And the only problem with Republicans trying to paint President Obama as a reckless spender is it is not true at all. Market Watch point out that federal spending is rising at the slowest rate- In fact, look at it there since 1950. But take a look at that bar chart there. For four years, from fiscal year ’09 through fiscal year ’13, we are heading into, no change. It’s been about $3.5 trillion right through. You know, Joan, every once in a while I’m amazed because I have heard so much about how government federal spending has been spiking every year. And you look at the ad that Rove put out and you’d be lead to believe that every year it is ticking upward. It is incredibly flat, government spending, federal spending.Rest In Peace America
