I was trying to figure out why the AP's information wasn't lining up with the other articles released just several days later. Info on your source:
Following up on Friday's awful jobs report from the government (only 74,000 seasonally adjusted jobs added, with the unemployment rate dropping to 6.7 percent only because adults continued to leave the workforce), the Asssociated Press's Christopher Rugaber tried to search for excuses.
To its credit, the headline at Rugaber's report didn't blatantly dissemble like the one at Bloomberg, which, in revising the title of an underrated Stevie Wonder song from the 1970s ("Blame It on the Sun"), blamed it on the cold and snow: "Old Man Winter Put a Chill on U.S. Labor Market at End of 2013." But the AP reporter predictably failed to entertain the possibility that Obamacare's virtual chaos, plan cancellations, and impending 2014 premium hikes might have thrown a great deal of sand into the job market's gears, even though a virtual halt in healthcare hiring stuck out like a sore thumb. Excerpts follow the jump (bolds and numbered tags are mine):

Moderation is too be expected, especially with weather as bad as it has been....Oddly the rise in construction hiring was puzzling at the height of winter, also...Recent day's market jitters and corrections have had much to do with global factors...tremors in China's armor and that Europe is also still not catching up to our recovery....

According to CBO, America cannot afford another Republican President. Traditionally most Americans have been led to believe America is better off under Republicans. According to a newly released data from the CBO, this isn't true. The Republicans are the reason America has a record debt. It all began when Ronald Reagan was the first President to rack up more debt than all previous President's combined. That included FDR President during WW II and Eisenhower of the Korean War.
BS lady

google national debt by year, and you will see what you said is BS.

you could say Clintoon spent more than Reagan, and Obama more than both of them added together in just 5 years, and may well double that number.

And you'd be correct on all points.

Isn't it also true that Obama has spent or increased the debt more than all presidents combined, beginning with George Washington?

RS, I'm working...can't check it out.

learn to read your own chart dip stick.

Obama has spent more than clintoon and Reagan combined.

My guess before he leaves office you can add both Bush's and Carter.

maybe you need to stick with the flash cards for 3rd graders.

You are confused about what the terms "debt", "spending", and "GDP" mean.

And those are real dollars, unadjusted for inflation.

Look closely at the growth rates under Reagn, GWB, and Obama.

I realize you have difficulty with percentages, but you should really give it a try.

Poor Walter. The chart Duke provided doesn't have any spending numbers on it. I have always maintained that you are more language deficient than you are arithmetic deficient.

I did not open the link of your mutt leader.

I actually looked at a spending chart. It started in the 1700's, and is what is called documented factual history.

If you didn't open the link why did you assert that I was incapable of interpreting it?
