The balanced budget had to be shoved down Clinton's throat by the Conservative Congress. BJ Clinton even shut down the gubbermint for weeks, trying to force them to accept liberal-business-as-usual buying votes with Welfare.
Now you Socialist/Democrats want credit for reforming Welfare?
The budget took a dive when liberal Republicans replaced the conservatives in early 2000, then exploded when Princess Pelosi and the entitlement kings on the left took BOTH houses of Congress in 2006.
If you want balanced budgets, kick out the Socialist/Democrats and liberal Republicans, replace them with Conservatives.
By the way, do you think Lord Obama will EVER have a budget? It's been years since the federal gubbermint operated with one. Seems like Lord Obama doesn't want to be constrained to ANY budget.
Can't ya just answer RealDave's question without a bunch of diversionary excuses? Bush was handed a budget surplus, the CBO at the time projected that the debt would be all but paid off by 2013 ... what happened and who did it?

Clinton + Republican Congress got us a balanced budget.

Then Clinton left

Bush + basically same Congress got s debt & deficits.

What changed? Certainly, if it were the Republicans that pushed Clinton into it, those balanced budgets would have continued. But hey, who am I to argue with a dumbass like you.

Obamahas presented a budget every year.

Jonah Goldberg: Bush prescient in ‘compassionate conservative’ approach
Compassionate conservatism increasingly faded from view after 9/11. Bush ran as a war president first and a compassionate conservative at best second in 2004. Still, it’s worth remembering that Bush won a staggering (for a Republican) 44 percent of the Hispanic vote. Mitt Romney got 27 percent.
Moreover, according to exit polls, Romney decisively beat Barack Obama on the questions of leadership, values and economic expertise but was crushed by more than 60 points on the question of which candidate “cares about people like me.”
I still don’t like compassionate conservatism or its conception of the role of government. But given the election results, I have to acknowledge that Bush was more prescient than I appreciated at the time.

Obama has been pushing that for months & McConnell & crybaby Boehner (rhymes with toner) evidently were too stupid to know that & acted shocked.

Just how stupid are you people?

Your momma or papa never told you the fable of spilled milk, did they, DUHmmy Duh A Vey.

Here's a hint--after awhile, it starts to stink...and smell reallllly sour and rotten---cause it is!!

Now get into 2012--Bush has NOT been POTUS for four plus years--having NO BUDGET has nothing to do with Bush, and the time has come to get OFF the campaign prance and dance stages-and move on to REALITY and the business of tending to the JOB that America elects POTUS's to do!!
