The Clinton,'Surplus,' is a half truth hiding a bigger lie; and if I voted democrat,and I don't!, I'd be insulted.<quoted text>
Clinton gave us a balanced budget and a soap opera in the Oval Office.
Can't beat that.
There is difference between the Deficit,(yearly debt,) and National Debt,(Deficits (yearly debt(s))not paid in arrear.))
In other words, when the Deficit isn't paid at years end it is added to the National Debt,(unpaid debt.)
So? Clinton ended 1999's Deficit with a surplus.
So, what's my problem?
For starters, Clinton took, not borrowed, took from Social Security, to create said,'Surplus.'
But, but! the overall National Debt increased 2 trillion dollars on his 8 year watch as President. Circa 1992 - 2000.
No, no I'm not letting the Bushes off the hook either!
GHW Bush had the National Debt increase almost 3 Trillion on his 4 year watch as President.(The National Debt was already 1 trillion plus when he was elected.)Circa 1988 to 1992.
Bush Sr. In turn dumped a 4 trillion dollar debt onto Clinton; who in turn dumped a 6 trillion dollar debt onto Baby Bush.(2000 to 2008.)Whose profligate, mad spending dumped a whopping 10.8 trillion dollar debt onto Obama,(2008 to 20016,)who is wrecking America faster, and greater then all 43 Presidents behind him.
The Democrat pundits all say Obama inherited GW's mess. Just one problem. it didn't start with him.(Baby Bush.)
And sorry, Obama's been in office more then 5 years now, He can't keep blaming Bush!
Sorry, I gotta call it like I see it
We're 17.3 trillion is National Debt.
Obama is an outright liar when he says he's cut more Deficits in the past 5 years then the Republicans have in the past 50 years.
You literally have to be plain stupid to listen or believe anything this guy says.
And I'm not saying that cause I'm a racist, or that I primarily vote Republican either.
What's true is true.
Guy should never have been elected.
What then? John Heh heh heh Mccain!?
Wow man, we really R in deep doo doo!
