Republicans Are Bad At Math

I noticed this gem on the official Official House GOP webpage:

"President Obama has now been responsible for the FIVE highest deficits of all time"

Note that this was posted in October 2012 before he was even re-elected.

1. They know what they are doing . They know math. They love to lie. They get away with it

The press almost always parrots their lies. As long as the press backs them up they will not stop lying.

7. The National Debt Graph, Republicans understand math. They are liars and think you are stupid

?

THE LAST 3 REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTS HAVE ACCOUNTED FOR $9.2 TRILLION OF THE INCREASE IN THE NATIONAL DEBT
Every President, from Truman to Carter, steadily paid down the staggering debt that was run up in our fight against Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan. That pattern came to a screeching halt with Reagan/Bush and Bush. Clinton’s fiscal policy was a brief respite during this orgy of deficit spending.

Clinton's economic policies balanced 5 budgets, which is 5 more balanced budgets than the last 5 Republican presidents combined.

President Obama, like President Clinton, inherited a sea of red ink and a recession from his predecessor. He, like President Clinton, recognizes the importance of getting America back to work and then getting our fiscal house in order.

8. THE GRAPH DO NOT LIE

 

The GOP lies, cheats, and steals.

The GOP in 1980 started the concept of BORROWING and then they forget what they did about BORROWING.

Our only hope is that the old GOP will die out and we can have a BETTER world without the greedy bastards.

9. They'd have to DO math, to be bad at it.

Generally, I haven't found too many that actually do the math.
