Debunking Almost Every Republican Lie Against President Obama
Posted in the Minneapolis Forum

Ive read thousands upon thousands of comments by Republicans in the 18 months since I founded my page Right Off A Cliff. Usually what they say doesnt bother me, because often its just ridiculous. The thing that does drive me nuts is that about 95% of what they say is completely inaccurate.
Let me shred some of their Fox News fed rhetoric:
Obama has been the biggest spending President in history! FALSE. Year to year spending increases have been less than 1%. Theyve also been at their lowest rate of year to year increases since Eisenhower.
Obama has spent more than all other Presidents in history! FALSE. On January 20, 2009 our national debt was $10.6 trillion, today its $17.6 trillionfor a $7 trillion increase. For the mathematically challenged,$7 trillion is less than $10.6 trillion. This also doesnt factor in the money spent in 2009, which gets tagged to President Obama, was actually passed by Bush.
*This also doesnt take into account much of the cost of both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars had not been put on our books by the Bush administration.
Obama is a Muslim! FALSE. Youre an idiot and Im not even going to explain why.
Obama isnt an American! FALSE. See above.
Obama is responsible for the immigration crisis! FALSE. Hes actually just following the law signed in 2008 by George W. Bush dictating how we must treat immigrants from non-contiguous countries.
Obama is the reason why our troops were pulled out of Iraq! FALSE. Actually we pulled our troops out of Iraq because of a SOFA agreement that was signed by George W. Bush.
Obama has ruled like a dictator with his use of executive orders! FALSE. Hes actually on pace to issue fewer executive orders than both Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush.
Illegal immigration has been out of control under Obama! FALSE. Actually, illegal immigration was much worse under Ronald Reagan.
Obama is a Communist/Socialist/Fascist! FALSE. Theyre all differentits impossible to be all 3. Then with stocks setting new records and increasing by more than 100% since their lows in 2009 - he would be the worst Communist, Socialist or Fascist that has ever existed.
Obama is always on vacation! FALSE. President Obama took 131 vacation days in his first 4 years in office. That puts him on pace for 262 days during 8 years in the White House. By contrast Bush took 1,020 days (including a 5-week vacationthe longest by any President in nearly 4 decades), and Reagan took 484 days. Once again for the mathematically challenged, Obama is on pace to take fewer vacations than both Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush.

You need to cull yourself from the herd like Robin Williams. You are wasting O2 and producing too much CO2 anyway.
