Yep, when the Republican took over Congress in 1995, Clinton shut down the government rather than sign a balanced budget,,,,,, but the press blamed the evil Newt for the shut down.<quoted text>The Democrats took control of our economy after the November 2006 election. Bush was foolish to let the Democrats have free reign,but he basically allowed himself to be a lame duck after he realized that the 110th Congress wouldn't even vote in the middle. Things became much worse after the Democrat primary,when our country lost the battle against the radical left.
Bush realized if he had vetoed the Democrats bloated budget,,,,,, he would be blamed by the press. To the LSM, the Republicans are always wrong!
