Well the answer the the first question is: the deficit was cut nearly in half. And as far as "printing money" do you even know what that actually means? Because if your talking about quantitative easing, that is a fairly common economic tool used by quite a few other countries. Generally its been pretty effective.

The last budget signed by Bush had a deficit of $450 billion. Obama's largest deficit is $1.6 trillion and smallest $1.1 trillion. So at best you're looking at a 240% increase under Obama.

And you're going to see lies about how it's because Bush didn't pay for wars and Obama does. But those lies simply don't go anywhere as soon as you look at the actual budgets. The difference between 2008 military spending and 2013 military spending is $40 billion, which is a lower increase than simple inflation would require to stay constant. Clearly it is not the cause of a $1.2 TRILLION increase in the budget deficit

Obama: Deficits falling at fastest rate since WWII. Is that true?
In a speech marking the fifth anniversary of the financial crisis, President Obama claims credit for cutting the deficit in half. But one reason it fell so fast is that it shot up so high in the first place.

By Peter Grier, Staff Writer / September 16, 2013

President Obama on Monday boasted that during his time in office the US budget deficit has been cut in half. In remarks commemorating the fifth anniversary of the onset of the financial crisis of 2008, Mr. Obama cited the deficit reduction as a sign of progress for an economy that’s still struggling toward full recovery.

“Our deficits are now falling at the fastest rate since the end of World War II. I want to repeat that. Our deficits are going down faster than anytime since before I was born,” said Obama.

When you put it that way it sounds pretty impressive, doesn’t it? But is that true?

Strictly speaking, yes. The deficit is falling as rapidly as it has in decades. Consider the figures for this year alone: Last week the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) reported that, through the first 11 months of fiscal 2013, the budget deficit was down 35 percent from the comparable period of 2012.

That’s a pretty steep decline.

“The federal budget deficit has fallen faster than we expected a few years ago,” wrote CBO director Doug Elmendorf on his blog.

But as Mr. Elmendorf and other experts point out, one of the reasons it is falling is because it shot up so high in the first place. As the financial crisis devastated the economy, tax revenues fell. Spending on unemployment insurance and other government recovery programs rose. In 2008, the deficit was about $458 billion. In 2009, it rocketed up to $1.4 trillion. It stayed above the trillion-dollar mark for 2010 through 2012.

As the economy has gradually recovered, those cyclical expenses have receded. Tax revenues have risen modestly along with the slowly rising gross domestic product. The FY 2013 shortfall should end up at around $642 billion, according to the CBO.

The sequestration automatic budget cuts have also cut spending. However, the January "fiscal cliff" deal, which locked in the Bush-era tax cuts largely offset these savings, according to the Concord Coalition, a budget watchdog group.

“This year’s lower deficit can be largely attributed to short-term economic factors rather than systemic reforms in the federal budget,” writes the Concord Coalition’s Steve Winn.

Looking ahead, CBO now projects that the deficit will continue to narrow until fiscal 2016, when it will again begin widening, as more and more baby boomers retire and become eligible for Medicare and Social Security.

“The fundamental federal budgetary challenge has hardly been addressed,” writes CBO chief Elmendorf.

Nor does it do anything about the debt piled up during the recession’s worst years. The debt is the nation’s accumulated red ink; the deficit is the amount of red ink Uncle Sam runs up each year.

When the president proclaims that the deficit is shrinking at the fastest rate in decades, that’s the same as saying that the speed at which the nation is rolling backward has decreased dramatically, wrote Keith Hennessey, director of the National Economic Council under President Bush, in May.

“That is not something you should boast about. You’re supposed to boast when things are getting better, not when they’re getting worse more slowly,” wrote Mr. Hennessey.

More smoke and mirrors. The $680B deficit conveniently leaves out the $320+B that the government borrowed internally during the fight over the debt increase. The first day after the agreement, the debt increased by $328B as the government somehow borrowed that amount to pay back the pension plans that had been raided. Even public-school arithmetic has $680B + $328B = $1T+

It also reflects a one time credit to the Treasury from Fannie and Freddie of close to $85B that won't be repeated.

And it reflects the re-imposition of the normal SS tax that had been cut for 2 years.

The sequester -- which the Dems HATE -- also trimmed about $90B from the spending for the fiscal year.

Even at all of that, almost $700B was added to the national debt. Not exactly a bragging point :)

No numbers coming out of this administration can be believed and they are always revised upward later. The 126 welfare/entitlement programs alone cost over 1 trillion dollars per year and then there is Medicare, and Social Security and the rest of the federal government. Anybody that believes this government will spend less than it receives in revenue has to be a Democrat or Liberal suffering from their fiscal denial syndrome!

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!! ! Obama and his democrats have spent more in his first 4 years in office than all others before him combined. Add in Zerocare to the tune of at least 200 billion more a year and the expected deficit of 25-28 trillion when he leaves office in 3 years. Yeah we understand plenty how well the democrats can save money. You reeeeaaallllyyyy need to get out more and do a bit of study on who spent what and when. You do realize that your president has not had his budgets voted for since he took office, correct. You do realize that the budgets that he has offered have not gotten even one single vote, from either party, correct? Sheesh.
