Why are so many conservative “arguments” really just tricks, trying to fool people?

4. Bush was criticized for excessive federal spending and running up huge deficits. Bush’s deficit in 2008 was the largest in history. In fact, President Obama said,
It’s a little hard for me to take criticism from folks about this recovery package after they’ve presided over a doubling of the national debt … What I won’t do is return to the failed theories of the last eight years that got us into this fix in the first place.
Whose deficit was more than triple the size of the other’s: Bush’s in 2008 or Obama’s in 2009?
The correct answer? The 2009 budget, with its 1.4 trillion deficit, was also Bush’s. The 2009 budget year began in September 2009, before the election. The “stimulus” had barely started b ythe end of that fiscal year. This according to the Cato Institute.
This is what so many “conservatives” are made of. At least Cato Institute showed integrity.
