Did you know that Barack Obama has recorded the lowest government spending of any president since Eisenhower (ie in my lifetime)?

Well you do now.

What is considered spending? According to latest figures last years budget was the biggest ever, adding over 1.1 trillon to our national debt.

Haven't read all the underlying data, but CBO seem to reckon the 2012 deficit will be 2% down on the 2011 figure. And I assume the comparisons by President are averaged over the whole of each presidency, so you could both be right.
