After saying "Step back and look at the facts," Palin says that during President Obama's two years, the country built up more national debt than during the presidencies of all other presidents combined. Think Progress addresses her "facts:"
This is flatly false. When Obama took office the debt stood at $10.6 trillion. After inheriting two wars and the worst economy since the Great Depression, the debt has grown by $3.7 trillion since Obama has been in office. Palin is off by about $7 trillion.
So not only has the debt not increased more under Obama than all other Presidents combined, it has increased less under Obama than our last president, George W. Bush. Under President Bush, who inherited a $236 billion budget surplus from President Clinton, the deficit increased by $4.9 trillion.How's that truthy-ness thing working out for you, Sarah?
