In Dubya's last year (2008) the deficit was 455B. Obama raised it to 1.4T in 2009. So the $680B we're at now is still higher (by around 50%) than when he came into office. But we know Obama is slippery.
He says (correctly) that raising the debt ceiling doesn't raise the debt. Of course, the primary reason he wants to raise the debt ceiling is to increase the debt.
Deficit in 2009: 1.4 Trillion
Deficit in 2013: 700 Billion
It is technically true. What it fails to mention is every other relevant fact related to those figures, unfunded liabilities, etc.

Lie, and the problem is gone! What a leader.

Difference between deficit (annual) and national debt (total):
"Now, it’s important to get some terminology straight. The deficit refers to an annual number — how much outlays exceed revenues in a given year. The national debt refers to the total amount a nation has borrowed, over time, to finance these deficits. So reducing the deficit still means the debt increases year after year, as does the cost of paying interest on that debt." http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/fact-checker/wp/2013/09/...
The writer of this article claims that (therefore) Pelosi - who said the same thing - was telling the truth. But, of course, even there, any totals are only as good as the quality of the numbers being added. (Not that the subject is related, but for instance, unemployment numbers *don't* include the millions of *unemployed* who eventually gave up looking because there were no jobs to be had.) In this case, along with other figures, I wonder what amount was used for the cost (or as the Democrats say, saving) of Obamacare: so-called "deficit-reducing healthcare reform." http://www.whitehouse.gov/economy/reform/deficit-reducing-he...
But here's the way it works, Mr. President. Once you get caught in a lie (such as telling people they'd be able to keep their current insurance plan or telling people you'd get GMO's labelled, forgetting other issues), i.e., once you've lost your credibility, it doesn't matter even if you are telling the truth. Even those who did believe you at one time don't believe you anymore.
When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.

Not what you think he says. "We've cut our deficit in half". He didn't say THE deficit. That'll leave some wiggle room he can use later.
Isnt this one of the symptoms of megalomania? You think you are doing really well despite the exact opposite happening and what not?
To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.
For those who don't even want to watch the first 30 seconds the blatant propaganda is at 0:35.
I am just floored he could even make that statement with a straight face.
Protect your assets and profit from the greatest wealth transfer in history.
Largely due to " ... the expiration of stimulus measures, the imposition of across-the-board budget cuts known as the sequester, and tax increases on high-income households during the 2013 fiscal year, which ended September 30." Presumably the joke aspect of this is that Obama is claiming credit for things he mostly had nothing to do with, and for some of it, things he fought against.
I couldn't seriously watch past "Hi Everybody". I am still waiting for "everybody" to respond "Hi Dr. Nick!"
We'll we be outfoxed again?
