Heartache: The True Cost Of The Iraq War

Since the Democrats have had such a hard time telling the truth about this subject, Randall Hoven at American Thinker put up the official numbers from the CBO to set 'em straight. This chart is so simple even leftist idiots will understand it. They won't like it, but then they never like the truth.

Just for grins, use the above chart to dissect Christopher Hayes' statement that our current and future deficits are caused by "three things: the ongoing wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the Bush tax cuts and the recession."

Two of those three things -- the wars and tax cuts -- were in effect from 2003 through 2007. Do you see alarming deficits or trends from 2003 through 2007 in the above chart? No. In fact, the trend through 2007 is shrinking deficits. What you see is a significant upward tick in 2008, and then an explosion in 2009. Now, what might have happened between 2007 and 2008, and then 2009?

Democrats taking over both houses of Congress, and then the presidency, was what happened.

Emphasis mine.

Other nuggets found in this revealing tale:
Read it all: Iraq: The War That Broke Us -- Not

Of course the point is not that the Iraq war cost money. The point is that as usual, every Democrat and leftist media idiot is lying about its true cost at every opportunity. Just as they lie about everything else. Especially the Liar-in-Chief.

November, baby.
