Geez...You are latching on to rhetorical device despite me repeatedly explaining the opposite. Do you genuinely not understand?
I did not point out that President Bush had greater annual expenses to excuse the current annual expenses...I pointed out that EVERY SINGLE PRESIDENT
IN RECENT HISTORY HAS EQUAL AND OFTEN GREATER ANNUAL EXPENSES...USING THE SAME FORMULA EMPLOYED HERE
If ONE child gets sent to the principle for shouting at the teacher during class...and says "little timmy did it to"...agreed...it's BS.
IF the ENTIRE CLASS and EVERY STUDENT EVER TO HAVE THAT TEACHER gets sent to the Principle for shouting at the teacher...
You might ask WTF is that teacher up to???
The FORMULA is BS...The OP and right wing outlets ask "How much is spent on The Obama's
BUT the formula includes....
The VP's office
Homeland Security Council
Domestic Policy Council
Economic Policy Council
National Security Council
Defense Information Systems Agency
The Entire Secret Service budget
Navy and Marine etc...
It goes ON and ON...
THE MATH IS BS......
The MATH is premised on eliminating an ENTIRE BRANCH of GOVERNMENT.....NOT WHAT THE "OBAMA'S COST"
This isn't about partisanship...it's about BS...it was BS when the claim was made about Pres. Bush...it is BS now.
But go ahead and keep championing BS...see where that leads...IMO Americans have BS exhaustion and THAT is the GOPs biggest challenge right now.
