Palin makes a small mistake

From Sarah Palin's Facebook notes for Jan 25:
Instead of real leadership, though, we’ve had broken promises and backroom deals. One of the worst: candidate Obama promised to go through the federal budget “with a scalpel,” but President Obama spent four times more than his predecessor.
She is wrong saying spending has increased by four time. If you follow the link, her source says that the deficit has quadrupled, not spending. However, she may get a pass on that. Anyone who points out the mistake draws attention to the deficit, and her opponents probably want to avoid discussion of how big the deficit really is.
