Clinton did not preside over a balanced budget and to give him credit for a republican congress shutting down the government until he was 'FORCED' to sign a balanced budget agreement only shows you are the biggest sheeple on here, so, BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAA, when you gotta lie for your leader you are following a follower,<quoted text>
No Republican administration has balanced a budget since Eisenhower in 1957.
Dwight Eisenhower was last Republican President to preside over a balanced budget. He had a balanced budget in 1956 and 1957. Since then, there have been two presidents to preside over balanced budgets, LBJ in 1969 and Clinton in 1998 through 2001. During the last 40 years there have been five budget surpluses, all five were under Democratic Presidents: 1969, 1998, 1999, 2000, and 2001.
"Fox News Sunday" is heading to Louisville, Ky. Jack Conway, Kentucky's attorney general and the Democratic candidate for Senate , and Rand Paul, the Republican nominee and son of Representative Ron Paul, Republican of Texas, have agreed to a live debate on "Fox News Sunday" on Oct.3 at 9 a.m. (Eastern time).

Greenspan Concedes He `Found a Flaw' in His Free-Market Ideology
Oct. 23 (Bloomberg)-- Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, under a grilling from lawmakers at a congressional hearing today, conceded a flaw in his free-market ideology that contributed to a ``once-in-a-century credit tsunami.''
``Yes, I found a flaw,'' Greenspan said in response to questions from to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.``That is precisely the reason I was shocked because I'd been going for 40 years or more with very considerable evidence that it was working exceptionally well.'' http://tinyurl.com/5ea9ng
Greenspan said he was ``partially'' wrong in his opposition in recent years to the regulation of derivatives. He said in a May 2005 speech that ``private regulation generally has proved far better at constraining excessive risk-taking than has government regulation.''
Committee Chairman Henry Waxman, a California Democrat, said Greenspan had ``the authority to prevent irresponsible lending practices that led to the subprime mortgage crisis.''
``You were advised to do so by many others,'' he told Greenspan.``And now our whole economy is paying the price.''

Yet you never bother to mention that Obama added 6 trillion in just his first 4 years and will probably put the National debt at the 20 trillion mark before he steps away from the destruction he has heaped on our economy. Bush added 4 trillion to our national debt in less than 8 years. Obama added 6 trillion to our national debt in less than 4 years. You do the math dumb ass. lol Why do you always conveniently forget to mention Obama and his reckless spending that makes the other corrupt politicians look like amateurs compared to him? Brain fart? That explains a lot. lol

You really didn't need to reference post, I believe you. You are very informative. My mistake.
I am sure Hussein was given time to hide his stash, just as Obama is giving Iran all the time he needs to hide his weapons, to excuse or lie about them.....although, Iran has nothing to fear, Obama is not going to do anything, anyways.
The sad thing about all of this is America (both parties) have been funding our enemies to kill our soldiers and representatives. Much worse under Obama, he is making sure they are politely and sweetly not only given to them freely but making sure there terrorists feelings are not hurt. Forget about the butchering and murdering of Americans.
Why would Obama care anyway, he hates America and the people in it.

EXCLUSIVEThe Three Trillion Dollar War: Nobel Laureate Joseph Stiglitz and Harvard Economist Linda Bilmes on the True Cost of the US Invasion and Occupation of Iraq / February 29, 2008 / http://tinyurl.com/2on4jv
One week after President Bush rejected charges the war in Iraq has hurt the US economy, a new book puts a conservative estimate of the wars cost at $3 trillion so far. In their first national broadcast interview upon their books publication, Nobel laureate and former chief World Bank economist, Joseph Stiglitz, and co-author Linda Bilmes of Harvard University say the Bush administration has repeatedly low-balled the cost of the warand even kept a second set of records hidden from the American public

Iraq war 'caused slowdown in the US'
February 28, 2008 / http://tinyurl.com/2r8b3k
THE Iraq war has cost the US 50-60 times more than the Bush administration predicted and was a central cause of the sub-prime banking crisis threatening the world economy, according to Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz.
The former World Bank vice-president yesterday said the war had, so far, cost the US something like $US3trillion ($3.3 trillion) compared with the $US50-$US60-billion predicted in 2003.
Australia also faced a real bill much greater than the $2.2billion in military spending reported last week by Australian Defence Force chief Angus Houston, Professor Stiglitz said, pointing to higher oil prices and other indirect costs of the wars.
Professor Stiglitz told the Chatham House think tank in London that the Bush White House was currently estimating the cost of the war at about $US500 billion, but that figure massively understated things such as the medical and welfare costs of US military servicemen.
The war was now the second-most expensive in US history after World War II and the second-longest after Vietnam, he said.
The spending on Iraq was a hidden cause of the current credit crunch because the US central bank responded to the massive financial drain of the war by flooding the American economy with cheap credit.
"The regulators were looking the other way and money was being lent to anybody this side of a life-support system," he said.
That led to a housing bubble and a consumption boom, and the fallout was plunging the US economy into recession and saddling the next US president with the biggest budget deficit in history, he said.

Dr. Germ and Mrs. Anthrax Set Free
http://tinyurl.com/7nzsn Dec 27, 2005
Why is it not bigger news that those infamous Iraqi female scientists once routinely referred to in the media as Dr. Germ and Mrs. Anthrax have been quietly released from imprisonment in Iraq without any charges being brought by their U.S. captors? Dont the newspapers and TV networks that all but pre-convicted them of crimes against humanity owe themand usthe courtesy of an explanation for the sudden presumption of their innocence?
After all, it was to stop these mad leaders of Saddam Husseins allegedly booming weapons-of-mass-destruction programs that the United States invaded Iraq in March 2003. We were told at the time by the White House that the U.N. inspectors scouring the country were being blocked by lying officials and scientists, themselves complicit in breaking U.N. sanctions, and so we wouldnt get the truth until we could interrogate them as prisoners. http://www.truthdig.com/report/item/12282005_...

Obamacare Architect Leaves White House for Pharmaceutical Industry Job
Few people embody the corporatist revolving door greasing Washington as purely as Elizabeth Fowler / December 5, 2012 / http://tinyurl.com/bh6wuuv
When the legislation that became known as "Obamacare" was first drafted, the key legislator was the Democratic Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, Max Baucus, whose committee took the lead in drafting the legislation. As Baucus himself repeatedly boasted, the architect of that legislation was Elizabeth Fowler, his chief health policy counsel; indeed, as Marcy Wheeler discovered, it was Fowler who actually drafted it. As Politico put it at the time: "If you drew an organizational chart of major players in the Senate health care negotiations, Fowler would be the chief operating officer
