AP FACT CHECK: Obama disowns deficit he helped shape

Never think there is a left wing or right wing media. They're job is to stir the pot for the readers. But if the Associated Press puts it out on the wire than it must be true. Especially, when they print, "FACT CHECK".

WASHINGTON (AP) - "That wasn't me," President Barack Obama said on his 100th day in office, disclaiming responsibility for the huge budget deficit waiting for him on Day One.

It actually was him - and the other Democrats controlling Congress the previous two years - who shaped a budget so out of balance.

And here we have proof in the pudding...

WASHINGTON (AP) - Democrats in Congress capped President Barack Obama's 100th day in office by advancing a $3.4 trillion federal budget for next year - a third of it borrowed - that prevents Republicans from blocking his proposed trillion-dollar expansion of government-provided health care over the next decade.

Wednesday's House and Senate votes to adopt the nonbinding budget blueprint were only a first step toward Obama's goal of providing health care coverage for all Americans. The budget plan for the fiscal year that begins Oct. 1 sets the parameters for subsequent tax and spending bills expected to boost clean energy programs and student aid and extend many of former President George W. Bush's tax cuts.

And there you have it. The Associated Press in a nutshell.

Oh, look, it's a right-wing WIN AT ALL COSTS talking point.

You will note he also misquoted Churchill and simply made up a jobs number...as long as the media does not follow up his 'exaggerations' (lies if Bush said them) with tough questions, we will get more imaginary numbers and fake history.

Once upon a time, when the average citizen had some founding in history and civics, such absolute twaddle would not fly but in dumbed down America, anything goes.

Yep, more vilification. This is typical of what the right-wing-WIN-AT-ALL-COSTS fascist party does when somebody points out that their emperor has no clothes, they vilify them, they lie about them in public, and they make unwarranted personal attacks on their moral, ethical, and intellectual betters.

Because after all it's WIN AT ALL COSTS, even if what they finally wind up winning looks more like Iran than anything else.

Look at what happened to the society that invented Algebra - it's now the society of the Wahibist and the Jihadist.

That's what the WIN AT ALL COSTS right-wing would have happen to the USA.

JJ, your type is one of the reasons I give to the United Negro College Fund. "A mind is a terrible thing to waste".

I'd hate to ask where you threaten to "stick 'em up".
