What is the flavor of the Kool-Aid you are drinking?
As many individuals went on food stamps under W as have been added to the program under Obama. The economy W inherited was in a lot better shape than the one Obama inherited.
We asked the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food and Nutrition service for month-by-month figures going back to January 2001. And they show that under President George W. Bush the number of recipients rose by nearly 14.7 million.
Enrollemnt has increased from 31,983,716 in January 2009 to 46,670,373 as of the most recent available data in June 2012 - no greater increase than under W
Food stamp enrollment bottomed out at the end of 2000 and has been increasing ever since - clearly the Kenyan Socialist is to blame for that
