Yet Another Reminder of Who's Really to Blame for the Deficits (In a Graph That Even a Teabagger Can Understand)

This has been covered many times before and in many ways, but it's always bares repeating, especially when we a comatose press corp who continually allows the GOP to hypocritically champion deficit reduction while simultaneously blaming President Obama for the current deficits.

Check these out for more background info:

Republicans Spent 82% of the $11 Trillion U.S. Debt (That's $8.8 Trillion for You Teabaggers)
What (Who) Really Caused the Budget Deficit? Hint, It's Not Barack Obama.
Rove falsely Suggests Obama is Responsible for Entire 2009 Deficit
Fox "News" Lies. Cato Institute Calls Them Out.

Well, TPM posted this new graph a couple of days ago as yet another simple reminder for those with short memories (and that's easy enough for even the dumbest teabagger to understand), showing hoe "Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Bush tax cuts (along with the economic downturn) are what is driving the U.S. deficit, not stimulus spending," and not Barack Obama's stimulus spending.

It comes from the the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities piece, "Critics Still Wrong on What’s Driving Deficits in Coming Years: Economic Downturn, Financial Rescues, and Bush-Era Policies Drive the Numbers."
Never forget who's really responsible for the mess we're in.
