Terry Jeffrey, Arcane Debt Number-Cruncher
Terry Jeffrey's national debt analogies just keep getting more absurd and arcane. Here are a few of his previous, pithy, conservative-blogger-quotable comparisons:
Obama Added More to National Debt in First 19 Months Than All Presidents from Washington Through Reagan Combined, Says Gov’t Data
111th Congress Added More Debt Than First 100 Congresses Combined: $10,429 Per Person in U.S.
U.S. Debt Jumped $72 Billion Same Day U.S. House Voted to Cut Spending $6 Billion
U.S. Must Borrow Another $5,240 Per Household Just to Fund Gov't at Current Level Through Sept. 30
Uncle Sam’s Latest Line of Credit: $1,888,174,000,000.00 Spent Out of $1,900,000,000,000.00
Gov’t Has Borrowed $803.73 Per U.S. Household Since GOP Majority Enacted Its First Spending Bill Last Month
Now comes this arcane bit of number-crunching from Jeffrey in an Aug. 8 article: "Obama Increased Inflation-Adjusted Debt More in 4 Days Than U.S. Did Through Entire 1950," later adjusted to "Obama Increased Debt More in 4 Days Than Truman and Eisenhower Did in 10 Years."
