PolitiFacts have proved Republicans have been the bigger liars. "Romney says Obama failed to pass a budget.<quoted text>
Obama 26 states.
Romney 24 states.
Obama won the liberal states with the larger populations by the biggest margins - by approximately 2 million in New York and 3 million in California.
He barely won Florida and other states by a slim margin.
So I wouldn't call it a mandate or anything like that.
Guess if you keep promising everybody everything even if you don't deliver and lie enough about your opponent and run enough smear campaign ads, you're bound to win over a lot of liberals.
Mostly False. The Republican presidential aspirant made this claim in April 2012, faulting Obama for failing to pass a budget. Congress twice voted down the presidents budget requests. However, the job of passing a budget resolution is not the presidents. That responsibility falls to Congress, and even then the president doesnt sign it. The votes to reject Obamas budget proposals amounted to nothing more than political theater." "Obama says Reagan raised debt ceiling 18 times; George W. Bush seven times.
True. This July 2011 claim reflects the fact that raising the debt ceiling has historically been an issue tackled by Republicans and Democrats alike. President Reagan agreed to raise the debt ceiling 18 times and George W. Bush did so seven times." Ronald Reagan even famously said that 'government deficits don't matter'.
