In 2001, they predicted that our debt would be non-existent today based on the revenue & spending at that time.
Then Bush was elected.

He's just in over his head.

He understood his job description to be: Read the teleprompter with as few embarrassing mistakes as possible, stay in campaign mode, keep blaming Bush, look GQ cool at all times and never stop fundraising.

The only retirees who return to screw around are the losers and their advice is unwanted.
President Clinton attended the Democratic Convention and campaigned like a trooper.

Comic book conservatives use of RINO may have kept President Bush away?
BTW he paints very well.

Clinton + Republican Congress = balanced budget & surplus
Bush+ Same basic Congress = debt & recession.
What changed?
You are a simpleton, for sure. Nothing but a frustrated angry old person that made poor choices.

By the way simpleton, Congress changes.

Nice lie though.

Problem is, they are too brainwashed to admit they are wrong.

I just love how F.A. is crediting Obama with Whistle Blower investigations carried out under the Bush administration. She wasn't so accommodating when it came to giving credit to Obama for capturing Bin Laden. Funny how that works.

What happened?
As I stated there is no sure place for the money to go.
That's not a 'crash' but a bump or whimper. October, 2008 was a CRASH!--> "Friday morning began on a gloomy note, and immediately following the president's speech, negative patterns were apparent. The Dow was down 78.70 at the beginning of the president's statement but dropped to 185.66 by the end of his address.

The Dow dipped Friday morning below the 8000 mark for the first time since March 2003, and overnight global markets in Asia and Europe experienced more sharp drops. " http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/Economy/story :-D

It was also before the dot-com bubble burst and Bush inheriting that recession and, of course, 9/11.
But at least you didn't blame him for the housing market crisis or the Feds putting the money accelerator to the floor.
The tax cuts spurred the economy after 9/11.
He made some spending mistakes but what president hasn't?
It's very possible Bush could have done a much better job turning things around than this president has done given one more term.

Bush had to deal with the legacy of terrorism stupid douchebag Clinton left him. Too busy cheating on his hideous wife and disgracing the office of president.
At least Clinton could round up and convict all the terrorists who attacked us in 1996 and that''s with one free hand. Dubya couldn't find one terrorist Bin Laden or the weapons that he left in Iraq. Clinton only screwed his intern, Bush43 was too busy screwing the country over to satisfy his wealthy powerful political corporate donors.

Not according to John Kerry ,Hillary's successor, who said that she a great, outstanding job keeping us out of any large wars, persuading China to improve human rights at home especially for women, and gaining a mutual commitment from China on climate change mitigation.
