I'm afraid it's your reading comprehension that is 'piss poor'. No one denies the number went down.

The problem is that a President cannot have had a visible effect on the debt in his first month in office

Yes. The insanity is that he claims credit for the drop.

Omigod. The number is real but he cannot have caused it. It has to have been caused by the last admin.

It takes time for economic policies to have an effect on things like the debt.

Let me do this in kiddy language: Imagine a man and a lady meet each other and a month later she has a baby

You would say, "No, man! It takes nine months for a baby to be made. Someone else made this baby!"

I block people when they just open with an insult rather than arguing the facts. Like now in fact!

The goal of a stimulus is to get restart the economy after a recession, which we had around 2008.

As the economy then recovers, the theory is, wages go up, tax revenue goes up and social security goes down

This means that you can then start to pay off the debt. It takes a long time to filter through.

No changes a politician makes will have effects on the debt in one month though.They take longer than that.

You may think Obama borrowed too much, you may think the stimulus was not effective enough.
