Boring deficit still decreasing. How boring.

Deficit to GDP

The deficit has been decreasing sharply for most of the time Obama has been in office. So what? That’s boring. I know it must be boring, because nobody is talking about it.

The above graph appeared on a well-known anti-Christian communist website, and therefore is steeped in liberal bias. But for the most part, neither liberals nor conservatives are really spending any time talking about the fact that the deficit is going down, and the budget that broke at the end of the previous administration is getting fixed under the Obama administration, and we’re rapidly headed toward having a smaller deficit-to-GDP ratio than we had in 2004 under George W. Bush.

Actually, we here at have been reporting for a year that federal deficit statistics have a liberal bias, for example:

Federal Spending Graph: UNSKEWED!!!!

Federal spending graph refuses to cooperate with GOP agenda



…..yet the fact of the matter is, everyone is pretty much over it.

People have made up their minds, and don’t want to hear any more “facts” and “evidence” and whatnot.

This new graph is nothing new.  If, before seeing this graph, you believed that Obama is “exploding the debt” and is “on a spending spree” and has “stolen money from our children and grandchildren“, then what reason would you possibly have for thinking otherwise now?

None at all.

There is nothing to see here.

Please move on.
