The simple fact is that Obama inherited a federal deficit of $1.2 trillion on the day he was sworn in last year.

and why is that?
Don’t Blame Obama for Bush’s 2009 Deficit
http://www.cato.org/blog/dont-blame-obama-bus...
looks more like 1.4 trillion on that chart.
I believe you mean the Bush, Reid and Pelosi's $1.2 trillion dollar deficit, all 3 signed the bailout, have you forgotten? Bush was forced to save the country after the demorat authored mortgage disaster hit, have you forgotten that too?

You may want to get checked for dementia.

You didn't read the article did you?
"The deficit is less than half the record $1.413 trillion figure Mr. Obama and President George W. Bush SHARED in fiscal year 2009." Have you forgotten that it was the Geoge W. Bush administration that wrote the budget for fiscal year 2009?
"As a percent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP), the deficit fell to 4.1 percent, representing a reduction of more than half from the deficit that the administration inherited when the president took office in 2009.”
"Meanwhile, taxes have grown to $2.774 trillion, marking an all-time high and signaling that personal and business incomes are beginning to recover from the recession."
Granted, the bipartisan Budget Control Act passed in 2011 was partially responsible, despite republican efforts to halt cuts to the military, but Obama's insistance on raising taxes in the “fiscal cliff” deal made the difference. Proving that you can't have spending cuts without at least some tax increases.
"White House budget director Sylvia Mathews Burwell said the figures mean Mr. Obama has made good on his pledge to cut the deficit in half."
What's not to brag about?
I repeat, Barry and Harry raised it to trillion dollar deficts, what's there to brag about? Finally, despite Barry and Harry it's coming down, not because of them , in spite of them.
It's still obscenely high,$680 billion is nothing to crow about.

I'll assume you've forgotten Barry the campaigner[and liar in chief] said he'd cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term?

How close did he come?

Watched the video. Bush's own words: "The idea of focusing on one person really indicates to me people don't understand the scope of the mission. Terror is bigger than one person."
He also explained that bin Laden had not been heard of for some time, that he could be hiding in a cave if he was even alive or on the run.
But Bush was exactly right...that to focus on just one person as the only face of terrorism indicates people don't understand the scope of it.
I'm still waiting for those bushie boy wmd's son.

LOL. Smoke and mirrors.
"Wisconsin is PROJECTED to have a $1 billion surplus at the end of the two-year budget period covering July 2013 to July 2015 -- almost all of it because tax collections are rising faster than expected, according to the nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau." Not exactly a bird in the hand.
Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, 1/22/14:
Walker would also put more than $100 million more into the state's rainy-day fund, which currently holds about $279 million.
But his overall plan would leave the state in worse financial shape in the long term. Walker said his plan would add perhaps $100 million to the $725 million shortfall projected for the next two-year budget by the nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau."
Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, 5/28/13: Wisconsin Ranks 49th In Economic Outlook. The state was one of only five states with a projected economic contraction in the last six months of 2013.
AND, Wisconsin dropped from 44th place to 50th in private sector job creation.
I would say that Walker looks pretty damn foolish and destructive. Unlike Obama, who has our country back on track after the Bush train wreck.
So, on the one hand Barry the liar in chief gets all the credit and on the other hand Walker gets none? I sense some hypocrisy.

One of the smartest investments we made was to buy a four bedroom home for my son when he went to college. His three roommates paid rent equal to the PITI and we made a handsome profit when we sold it. It's the only way to go.
you may have succeeded at this, but most people lose at such arrangements, primarily because the "roommates" don't pay the rent and the houses are trashed after four years...

NPR- Consulate Attack Preplanned, Libya's President Says: http://www.npr.org/2012/09/16/161228170/consu...
September 16, 2012 7:24 AM
"Libya's president says he believes al-Qaida is behind a deadly attack in eastern Libya that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other U.S. staffers."
[I ask if this attack was over an anti-Muslim film that sparked violent protests across the Muslim world. He shakes his head.]
"The idea that this criminal and cowardly act was a spontaneous protest that just spun out of control is completely unfounded and preposterous," he says. "We firmly believe that this was a precalculated, preplanned attack that was carried out specifically to attack the U.S. Consulate."
The attackers used the protesters outside the consulate as a cover, he says.
"The intention was there from the beginning, for it to take this ugly barbaric, criminal form," he says."
Note the above story date. The Magic Negro is a lying Islamic dog-eater.
Exactly why Hussein hid in the bedroom for 4 1/2 hours.

Michigan, too. We have a $980 million surplus with a Republican governor and Legislature. Democrats are already grumbling about spending it on more Social Programs(gets them reelected every time).
I hear Ohio is doing well under republican governor Kasich, and of course leading all states is republican Texas.

Of course they lied, they take their cues from the liar in chief B. Hussein, the lair of the year. Yes Hussein was in the WH, hiding in his bedroom.
