Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall, Barack Obama (Surprisingly) Is Not the Biggest Spender of All

You are exactly correct. Obama's inflation adjusted deficits exceeded Bush's 8 years in less than 5 years. By this measure, a President just needs to spend a hugely unprecedented amount in his first year, and then increase moderately thereafter to look good. I have lost a great deal of respect for Mitchell by seeing him make this silly, ignorant error.
