Here on Planet Earth, President Barack Obama has reduced total federal expenditures as a share of the economy from 25.5 percent when he took office to 24.7 percent in the last quarter.

George W. Bush, on the other hand, raised federal spending from 19.4 percent of GDP to 25.5 percent. Or, as House Speaker John Boehner puts it, President Obama is a coward who wants to cut spending but is too scared of voters to do anything about it.

House Speaker John Boehner Tuesday repeatedly challenged the president's willingness to go against his own party on issues that include reforms to social programs and spending.

"I think he'd like to deal with it [fiscal problems], but to do the kind of heavy lifting that needs to be done, I don't think he's got the guts to do it,” the Ohio Republican said in a meeting with a small group of reporters for nearly an hour Tuesday morning.“He understands there is a spending problem. He understands that we need changes and reforms, and we need to solve these problems."

Sure, Speaker Boehner's attack wasn't grounded in reality, but let's give him some credit: at least he didn't accuse the president of being a secret Soviet apparatchik hellbent on destroying the American way of life. Instead, he basically accused the president of being a closeted Bowles-Simpson acolyte. That's progress, isn't it? Well, sort of.

Liars figure and figures lie. What was the US government spending in 2013 inflation adjusted dollars, when Obama took office, and what is it today? Why do you consider spending as a percent of GDP to indicate a reduction of spending instead of the real dollar amount?

Full truth is that real spending hasn't been cut, the economy has recovered a little so expenditures as a percentage of GDP have decreased. Enough with the Democratic voodoo math.

I am done providing information for you (regardless of what name you post it under). I know the information, which is why I called you a liar. If you wish to prove that information wrong and say that spending today is less then when Obama, then go ahead and look up the inflation adjusted real dollar spending. I don't really care as you will just respond with some psycho BS.

Good for you Bridge. He/she/it never reads the proof that people post. Especially when it proves him/her/it wrong, which is about 99.5% of the time. He/she/it will also not provide any evidence to back up the crap it spews. Unless it is plagiarized and that does not count.

Did I mention he/she/it also likes to fall back on calling people names, maligning peoples children and their religious affiliations, making fun of invalids and dead people, and using lots and lots of commas in all the wrong places?

Have to change the topic because you are a liar and know that Obama did not cut spending? You should pick a topic that doesn't make you look like a fool (if such exist). You are the one who is saying that once found competent, to stand trial, that he was never incompetent in the first place. You also said that was no legal proof he was insane during the shooting, even though that "non-existent" evidence was enough to have the judge send him to be evaluated in the first place.

P.S. Tell us again how you couldn't figure out the Hertz location. Tell us again how you are from Seattle, but didn't know about the $400 million new car rental hub that opened at the airport.
