I also compared the spending in terms of numbers, not percentages. You only used percentages to mask the real numbers in the equation to make it sound like Obama spent "less" when that isn't the case.
And you're percentages are wrong so that shows you how bad your math is.
Reagan had an 68 percent increase, not 103 percent.
Bush had an 48 percent increase, not 71 percent.
Obama had an 25 percent increase, not 22 percent.

While Reagan's % is higher than Bush's, note that in dollars it was less than $600 Billion.
Do you really expect anyone to take this seriously?
Here's a chart that shows deficit spending...Obama vs Bush. Note that this only includes 2 years of Obama.

You can go on and on about absolute terms all you want but you can't hide the fact that you're using misleading figures in an attempt to prove others are being hypocritical.
That coupled with the insults is not doing much for your credibility.
How nice it would be if everyone judged their party by the same high standards that they use to judge the other party.
Also using percentages is comparing in absolute terms.
Someone increases spending from 12 billion to 23 billion. That's a 91 percent increase.
Another increases spending from 11 billion to 22 billion. That's 100 percent increase.
The difference between 23 minus 12 and 22 minus 11 are the same, 11. But the percentages are still difference. It only shows that percentages means nothing. It keeps the concern away from the real statistics. Who spent more money.
Reagan Spending Increase: $553 Billion
Bush Spending Increase: $1.119 Billion
Obama Spending Increase: $836 Billion
Anyways, you shouldn't discuss numbers or statistics with me. You'll be up way past your bed time.

Once again Reagan fought for lower spending.Should he have went the Reagan approach and had massive amount of direct Government spending?
I'm sitting right here waiting for you to refute the facts as I quoted them and ready to point out the speciousness of your arguments such as comparing 8 years of spending to two. Did you really think you could get away with it?You can't skate out of this one
