When will conservatives tell the truth about the deficit?

While watching Discovery Channel tonight I saw a commercial for a new "documentary" that conservatives are putting out blaming Democrats for the deficit and calling the President a socialist...yeah right.

Now everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but everyone is not entitled to their own facts. If you look at the past 40 years what you will see is that whenever a Republican is in charge the deficit increases, whenever a Democrat is in charge the deficit decreases. The reasons for this lay in what the two parties believe about government. Republicans don't believe that government can function and therefore they want to sabotage it whenever they can, such as by "starving the beast."  Democrats, on the other hand, believe that government can and should function so they want to balance out their spending with tax increases.

The trailer for this movie is so bad I couldn't even watch it all without getting sick at the patent dishonesty (if you must go see it you can find it at http://www.iwantyourmoney.net/).
