WH boasts about cutting deficits fall on skeptical ears: ‘We’re not all idiots’

The White House wants America’s young people to celebrate the fact that it hasn’t finished cleaning the mess it’s made.

On Sunday, it sent out a tweet from President Obama proclaiming, “Since I took office, we’ve cut our deficits by about two-thirds.” The tweet was accompanied by a chart to “prove” it.

Looks good doesn’t it?

That is, until you look at the facts.

According to the Washington Times, Obama has, in fact, cut the deficit in half from 2009.

Of course, 2009 was his first year in office — a year in which he tripled the deficit.

Many on Twitter fired back at the insanity of an administration that wants American citizens to cheer the fact that it hasn’t completed fixing the destruction it’s caused.

It isn’t such an insane idea to celebrate a job half done. After all liberals are usually those who support giving kids participation trophies for not winning.
