Obama inherited the deficit from himself

Obama continues to talk about the deficit he inherited from George Bush, but which party controlled Congress the two years previous to Obama’s election as president? Why, it was the Democrats. Who passed that budget that Obama “inherited?” The Democrat-controlled House and Senate — including a senator named Barack Obama. And which president signed it into force with an omnibus spending bill in March 2009? Obama did, which means he inherited the budget and its deficit from himself.
