    Mittens the liar, has said repeatedly that the deficit in Obama's budget is three times Bush's. Bush's last budget contained a $1.37 trillion deficit, and Obama's is $977 billion. Mittens lied. Mittens lied again when he said that Bush was responsible for the end of the Bush republican near depression, when facts show that it was Obama who stopped the near depression. Mittens lied when he said that Obama made the deep recession worse, that the 8 million jobs lost in Bush's last three years somehow in his mind, was better than the 4 million jobs that has been created under Obama in 3 years.
