"Obama inherited a $1.2 trillion deficit"

Sure he did, if you count the Porkulus as a Bush bill, which it was not. The New York Times can't go away fast enough for me.

The author also fails to give "credit" to Obama not only for voting for, but also being of the main cheerleaders for, the 2008 TARP's $700B.

I’m scratching my head over that number. If he inherited 1.2 trillion, and pushed it up to 1.8 trillion, who then signed the 800 billion pork bill and the 400 billion budget spending. Brooks might want to whip out his calculator. Even if you just factor in the 800 billion, it puts the deficit obama inherited at less than 1.2 trillion.
