Ammunition for 2012

We’ve all heard it–the recession was all Bush’s doing and Obama’s just doing the best he can with the mess he was left.  It’s all fabricated nonsense, but it sells well to the sheeple who are trained to believe anything the left’s propaganda machine pumps out.  But here’s the truth about the deficit and debt:

Bush Deficit vs. Obama Deficit in Pictures

True, the distribution has been somewhat changed–Obama’s deficits have run smaller on the front end and larger on the back end, but he’s managed to run up nearly $4.8 trillion in UNBUDGETED deficits over the last 3 1/2 years, MORE than even the CBO projections in 2009.  The fact that Democrats want nothing to do with the budget process this year belies their promises to spend more wisely.  As the reality of the 2012 election sinks in, I would expect that spending will increase even faster, and we’ll outspend even the recent raising of the debt ceiling by another $1.2 trillion just the other day, as they try to feather their nests for the coming drought–when Republicans likely win both houses of Congress and the White House.  There should be legislation to claw back this raiding of the national treasury by the Democratic Party, but based on the feckless leadership of the Republican Party, I doubt any will be forthcoming.

I don’t think we can afford to engage in an insurgency candidacy this election cycle, but I think the Tea Party and other conservative organizations need to band together to start overthrowing the Republican establishment.  We will accomplish nothing in regard to reforming major aspects of the government with the current Republican leadership.  Paul Ryan had the right idea and the Tea Party caucus needs to solidify and expand our influence so we can control the message and frame the debate.
