What bullsh*t! Where was the growth from the Bush tax cuts? Nada was the result, ya' azzwipe! Freedom ain't free, as you conservatives are want to say, to quit yer incessant whining, and pay your taxes!

Dubya Dumazz is the immediate predecessor to the current POTUS, old man, and so hardly ancient history. And the damage he inflicted, the death, destruction, and near global economic collapse he precipitated will take many more years to correct. In the past Americans paid for their wars in an expression of shared national sacrifice; freedom isn't free, old fool, so quit yer whining and pay your fair share of the taxes to correct the catastrophic debt the last three Republican presidents shamelessly created!

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America 's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America 's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans
deserve better."

And it was the last three REPUBLICAN American Presidents that created this nation's debt problem. Increased spending was to be paid for with tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans! And what could be crazier than that? Starting unjustified wars that were fought "off the books!" Americans have always engaged in shared sacrifice to support necessary wars; without that sacrifice, bad policy is not questioned, and American lives and treasure squandered! God save America from the GOP!

Let me see: Clinton succeeded in balancing the federal budget, which none of the three preceding Republicans could do, and did so without engaging in a brainless foreign war wasting American lives and treasure; yep, he certainly earned a pass from the group of Republican utter failures preceding and following him!

The only thing i remember about the Clintons are whitewater , Hillary getting praise for not doing much of anything , Foster coverup and Bill letting Monaca spritz his seed all over her dress.

If he could take credit for the increase in welfare ,food stamps and obamaphones he would do it and be the jackass he always was and will forever be but obama gets all the credit for sewing up the free for me and the negro vote
