...It's a trap! What about Obama paying for the "Bush wars"? edition

On Fri­day my first post of the day talked about how the LOW fig­ure of the Obama years that the left con­sid­ers so dra­con­ian was an incred­i­ble increase in spending.

At noon­time I pointed out that even if you adjust for infla­tion the low year of the Obama spend­ing years (2010) com­pared to the low year of the Bush years (2001) rep­re­sented a 34% increase in real spending.

How­ever a REAL clever per­son of the left might look at this and say:

You can’t fool me DaT­e­chGuy, your fig­ures are all before 911 and the war on ter­ror, of COURSE the Obama years cost more because you are com­par­ing them to a year where spend­ing didn’t include all those hor­ri­ble Bush wars.”

It’s a fair cop (and a point I often make myself) and yes I did it delib­er­ately for two reasons.

1. I wanted to com­pare the low years of each pres­i­dent, and 2001 was the low Bush year

2. It’s a trap for you oh leftists

So let’s look at this using a dif­fer­ent year, 2005, two wars going on, Bush re-​elected and all that jazz. That 2005 spend­ing adjusted for infla­tion comes up to

$2,874,464,591,191.35

If we com­pare that adjusted for infla­tion fig­ure with the small­est Obama spend­ing year EVAH! $3,456 Bil­lion dol­lars we find it is 83.17% of What Barack Obama spent.

That means Barack Obama in 2010 spent over 20% MORE than George Bush did at the height of two wars in 2005.

Ok all you 18 – 30 year olds that’s only 8 years ago. You were all alive then. If you were born in 1995 or later you can relate to this.

Are we 20% bet­ter off than 2005?
Is your gov­ern­ment doing 20% more?
Do we have 20% more roads and bridges?
If the gov­ern­ment doing 20% more to help you find work?
Have we man­aged to do 20% more in all those things?

And yet if we went back to that fig­ure, as far as the pres­i­dent, the Demo­c­rat Sen­ate and the MSM is con­cerned, we would be hav­ing cuts so dra­con­ian that human­ity might not survive.

How stu­pid do they think we are? Pretty damn stu­pid, but the truth is we’re not stu­pid, just uninformed.

Not any­more.

Up to you.

On Friday my first post of the day talked about how the LOW figure of the Obama years that the left considers so draconian was an incredible increase in spending.

At noontime I pointed out that even if you adjust for inflation the low year of the Obama spending years (2010) compared to the low year of the Bush years (2001) represented a 34% increase in real spending.

However a REAL clever person of the left might look at this and say:

“You can’t fool me DaTechGuy, your figures are all before 9/11 and the war on terror, of COURSE the Obama years cost more because you are comparing them to a year where spending didn’t include all those horrible Bush wars.”

It’s a fair cop (and a point I often make myself) and yes I did it deliberately for two reasons.

1. I wanted to compare the low years of each president, and 2001 was the low Bush year

2. It’s a trap for you oh leftists

 

So let’s look at this using a different year, 2005, two wars going on, Bush re-elected and all that jazz. That 2005 spending adjusted for inflation comes up to

$2,874,464,591,191.35

If we compare that adjusted for inflation figure with the smallest Obama spending year EVAH! $3,456 Billion dollars we find it is 83.17% of What Barack Obama spent.

That means Barack Obama in 2010 spent over 20% MORE than George Bush did at the height of two wars in 2005.

Ok all you 18-30 year olds that’s only 8 years ago. You were all alive then. If you were born in 1995 or later you can relate to this.

Are we 20% better off than 2005?
Is your government doing 20% more?
Do we have 20% more roads and bridges?
If the government doing 20% more to help you find work?
Have we managed to do 20% more in all those things?

And yet if we went back to that figure, as far as the president, the Democrat Senate and the MSM is concerned, we would be having cuts so draconian that humanity might not survive.

How stupid do they think we are?  Pretty damn stupid, but the truth is we’re not stupid, just uninformed.

Not anymore.
