HuffPo Lying To Their Readers ……. Again!!!

Good grief!!!  Are they that stupid, or do they believe their readers are that stupid? …… nvm … rhetorical question. 

So, I see this from HuffPo …..

DEFICIT FALLS TO PRE-CRISIS LEVELS

And, they even have a smiling Zero giving the thumbs up!!!

Yep, that’s our Zero!!!!  Boy can he show budget restraint or what??? 

The HuffPo title piqued my interest, mostly because I already knew better and was curios as to how they were spinning this nonsense. 

Well, they’re not.  They’re not even actually writing it.  The NY Times is. 

WASHINGTON — The federal budget deficit fell precipitously to $680 billion in the 2013 fiscal year from about $1.1 trillion the year before, the Treasury Department said Thursday. That is the smallest deficit since 2008, and marks the end of a five-year stretch when the country’s fiscal gap came in at more than a trillion dollars a year.

Wow, only $680 million deficit!!!  We’re frugal now!!!!

Because leftards are some of the densest creatures on earth, i thought I’d try to communicate with them with pictures, rather than words and numbers, because that seems to be a bit beyond their capacity.  The crisis started in 2008, so pre-crisis levels would be before 2008.  Yes, I know, I screwed up trying to use words.  But, even the deficit today is still greater than the deficit in 2008.  Further, according to their own projections, the deficit will never get down to pre-crisis levels ever again.

I think the global warming bs was a test run by the LSM and people to see if any of the leftards would ever actually check and verify what they’re being told.  And, we see that the answer is no.  No, they won’t. But, I think it’s because we don’t draw them enough pictures.  So, here’s me, trying my best to save the left from being mired in lies and ignorance.

    Good point. In 10 years all the government data sets will show an annual budget surplus during the Obama years. I’m guessing the data will also show that the number of jobs created or saved during the Obama years was actually greater than the entire population of the U.S.

    “That is the smallest deficit since 2008, and marks the end of a five-year stretch when the country’s fiscal gap came in at more than a trillion dollars a year.” Key word in the original article is “since.”
    This means “after.”
    Where did the original article state “Deficit falls to pre-crisis levels?”

    Its only other peoples’ money. Why worry?

    Socialism is institutionalised robbery. I wish it were otherwise.

    It’s arithmetic Jim but not as we know it!

  5. Haha, what? The “crisis” stared in the 1990s, when Clinton was doing stupid shit with interest rates to stimulate house buying. Bush, the knob, didn’t put a stop to it when he had the chance (in his defense, he probably thought it was a good idea(id est: he actually was stupid)), and here we are. The Idiot Currently Occupying the Whitehouse probably can’t grasp subtle things like “the past”, so I can hardly blame him, except that he worked extra hard to make sure it became worse, so fuck him & the Wookie he rode in on.
