Obama: I couldn’t cut the deficit in half because recession was worse than I thought

I literally laughed out loud when I heard Obama tell this reporter that he could have kept his promise to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term if the recession hadn’t been so bad:

All he did was run up massive, and I do mean MASSIVE deficits. Never before in our history have we seen trillion dollar budget deficits. Even with the wars, Bush’s average deficit was around $266 Billion. For Obama’s first three years in office his average deficit was $1.4 Trillion. That’s insanity!

Obama has added more to the debt than all US presidents from Washington to Reagan combined. And he did it in only 19 months.

So let’s put an end right now to Obama’s ‘I woulda if I coulda’ excuse for breaking his promise. It is a blatant lie.
