Deny,deny,deny, the Sloppo way:<quoted text>
In case you missed that smack down Obama gave the Republicans in their own house, I’ll just give you a little tidbit. You can pick up the question at about the five minute mark. This is what happens when idiots believe their own BS and try to push it on a grown man. They must have really believed he couldn’t talk without a teleprompter.
"The fact of the matter is," Obama replied, "is that when we came into office, the deficit was $1.3 trillion --$1.3 trillion. So when you say that suddenly I've got a monthly deficit that's higher than the annual deficit left by Republicans, that's factually just not true, and you know it's not true. And what is true is that we came in already with a $1.3 trillion deficit before I had passed any law. What is true is, we came in with $8 trillion worth of debt over the next decade."

The facts of that statement is here. Incidentally, debt and deficit are two different things.
Entire smack down here.
