Without too much thinking about this at all, my man is the short-tempered; right-wing influenced Bill O’Reilly. I could give it to all the employees under Roger Ailes for their obvious political agenda, but I understand I could only pick one. One of the reasons I picked Bill O’Reilly is due to his ability to repeatedly miss the facts. It really bothers me when someone has a show, but never gives the facts unless it helps his or her own interest. Time and time again O’Reilly wants to add Bush’s 2009 budget to President Obama’s 2010 budget, which most people who watch his show have no idea is just an inaccurate way to tally up Obama’s budget, nor is it fair.
O’Reilly claims that President Obama has added 4.2 trillion dollars to the debt when he took office. This is simply “NOT TRUE”. The Obama policies since he took office have only added up to below 2 trillion dollars, the other 2.5 – 3 trillion dollars was added by Bush, his policies and other government debt that would have been added no matter who was elected into office. O’Reilly wouldn’t be so loose with his reporting and his facts if a republican president was voted into office. President Obama has only submitted 2 budgets since being in office, the 2010 and the 2011 budgets, Bush submitted the 2009 budget of 3.1 trillion dollars!!!
This is Bill O’Reilly’s problem, he is adding all the spending while Obama was in office from Jan. 2009, and this is not right because most of it was from the Bush budget. President Obama and Congress had some add-on stimulus for the 2009 budget that came to about 175 billion but was drafted by the Bush administration. The budget is always submitted the year prior to that fiscal year by the President of the United States, which was George Bush in 2008 who submitted the budget for 2009. All the debt, spending numbers and deficit being used to come up with Obama’s increases should start with his 2010 budget, not Bush’s 2009 budget, that just makes me nuts. O’Reilly is taking the 2009 Bush budget and adding it onto the debt numbers of the President.
The National debt in 2000 before Bush’s first budget was under 6 trillion dollars, for the last Bush budget in 2009 the debt had increased to 11.9 trillion, a 110% increase, these are facts Mr. O’Reilly!!! From 2008 to 2009 we saw a 17% decrease in federal receipts, this is something President Obama had nothing to do with yet O’Reilly throws it out there like it’s a game, just throwing mistruths all over the fox studios, you think the man would have some morals or loyalty to truth being that he is in the journalism profession? He’s just like an extreme right-winger Tea party lover and that’s why he gets my vote for hacker of the year.
