Here's a perfect example of the manner in which Republican lies are injected into the public consciousness by endless repetition. This is a chart (this time from Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit) which we see over and over again in various forms:
However, one thing is wrong with this chart, which Hoft and all the other Republican propagandists know perfectly well: The line for the year 2009, when the deficit vastly increased, represents not Obama's budget, but the last Bush budget, passed in October of 2008. The chart should really look like this:
This is in contrast, of course, to what would happen under a Romney administration. Romney's promised tax cuts for the rich and increased defense spending would balloon the deficit far beyond what even Bush managed to achieve, leaving Republicans with no task but their usual one of convincing the American people that, once again, it is somehow the Democrats' fault.
Thus, the lies march onward.
