and what outrageous spending? Spending is down from the entire 8 years of the bush administration due to the cost of iraq... so you're wrong there as well
so again...i don't see you're point...those damn facts just keep getting in my way
What matters is federal spending as a % of GDP.
In 2000? 17.98% of GDP.
In 2008? 20.76% of GDP
In 2009 - first year of the Obama Admin: Spending explodes - to 25.24% of GDP
And stays there. Obama will spend 24.33%of GDP this year.

Those damn facts just keep getting in your way, indeed.
