About That Budget Obama Inherited From GW Bush

I found this explanation of the budget Obama really inherited at Conservatives on Fire today.  We must repeat this, over and over, as we slough toward November. Here's a snippet of the article, but please read it all - it's not very long.

The Obama administration, in its zeal to blame everything on somebody else, refers to the 2009 budget deficit as the deficit he “inherited.” Approximately $1.3 trillion dollars. What is never mentioned is that the 2009 budget was a Democrat document (Reid and Pelosi) and
that it was never signed by George W. Bush because it was never presented to him for signature. Reid and Pelosi passed continuing resolutions until Bush was out of the White House and then the 2009 budget was signed by none other than Barack H. Obama.

The last budget G.W. Bush signed, the first budget of the Reid/Pelosi control of Congress ran a $641 billion dollar deficit. Prior to Reid/Pelosi, budget deficits were actually going down. The 2007 budget deficit (pre-Pelosi) was $162 billion. ~ Deception in Pursuit of Power by Pat Gallagher
Someone in the GOP needs to explain it just as Pat Gallagher has. Readers, please tweet this article to everyone you can at Fox News and the GOP and bring it to the attention of others who might blog it.

Thanks Mark! RR is having some computer problems so I'm standing in occasionally. I think he will be back on sometime today.
