Clinton's economy was completely false. All based off of dervivatives.
The issue we have today is a result of the Clinton administration. With Robert Rubin (treasury secretary) from Goldman Sachs and the so called "brilliant" Larry Summers from Goldman Sachs, they repealed the Glass Steagle Act which kept the banks from creating these fake derivative markets and using segregated accounts to cover the losses.
So before you try, look up some history first. You may not like what you see.
Your buddy Newt and his gang of Republicans repealed Glass-Steagall. Todays Republicans oppose reinstating it. In fact they want to further deregulate Wall Street and the Banks. Are you trying to claim that you support reinstating Glass-Steagall?

Dole=welfare. The inference is quite obvious by your statement.

Dole is generally taken to mean welfare...look up the definition.

It's from food passed out to the poor in Ancient Rome.

Obviously you do NOT know the true facts and only listen to your Republican masters and liars.
As a small business owner, I know this to be a FACT; the more I have to pay in taxes whether it be on a federal return or hidden in overhead taxes, the less I have to re-invest and grow my business. Thus, no heed to hire more of new employees. That is it in a nutshell. Listen less the the libtard mantra fed to you and enter the real world of business.

You are obviously an Obamite.
No one expects a devotee of the Obamite agenda to appreciate or respect Paul Ryan or Romney. Your dreams of a dramatically devalued America is the cornerstone of the Pelosi Doctrine of Hopelessness driven by Collectivism and Mediocrity
I would question Ryan and Romney's worth if you and your kind didn't HATE them.
LOL!!!!!!!!!! Your an idiot.

Obama is one of the biggest pieces of crap to ever grace us with his presence and should be charged with treason for the extension of the Patriot Act and the NDAA. So try again there sunshine.

I am a political atheist who refuses to believe in either the D god or the R god. I am calling a spade a spade here.

Why is it ok for the Dems to have no exp prior to being elected and the R's bitching about it. But, when a R is the exact same thing, it is ok.

Apparently your a Republican. Answer the question. How is it acceptable?

Glad to see you admit the republican convention was financed by tax payers. Thanks
Are you sure about that ?

Are you sure except for some security costs both conventions aren't self financed ?

Glass Steagall should have never have been repealed. That is what was keeping the banks seperated from being commercial and investments all in one.

Once Clinton, Larry Summers, and Robert Rubin in conjunction with the Republicans repeal of the law, it put us where we are today where the banks have all merged together and are over leveraged int he derivative markets.

Dumb and dumber married and had a child, they named him Tony. Under Clinton, the higher taxes didn't do as much damage because he was handed a very robust economy from Bush #1, he also had a Republican controlled congress that kept the usual tax and spend ways of liberals in check, also had the dot com bubble and so on. BTW, under Clinton the top payers paid around 60% of all taxes gathered, under Bush that rate went up to a bit over 70%. Seems to me the middle class DID benefit a lot more from the Bush tax cuts than the lie you are told by the DNC that it favored the rich.
As usual you are full of BS and your claims don’t match history. When GHW Bush came into office unemployment was 5.4. When he left it was 7.3. Clinton was not handed a robust economy. Remember his campaign slogan? Its about the economy stupid. When Clinton left unemployment was at 4.2, the lowest number since LBJ. GHW Bush left with a weak economy and a savings and loan collapse. The dot com bubble resulted in a stagnating stock market and what is called a technical recession.(market does not gain for 3 consecutive quarters) and was not a result of any Clinton policies. The real estate bubble and resulting economic crash that took place under GW Bush was a direct result of the republican policy of deregulation that permitted nonconforming loans to take over the mortgage market.

Hey LEFTY , I do.

Clinton could of vetoed it but he was under Robert Rubin's influence.

No it wasn't Newt , it was Phil Gramm and Chris Dodd.

But at least your statement had a tiny-winny bit of truth to it this time.

Never mind your blame game. Are you in favor of reinstating Glass Steagall? Would you vote for someone who is? Would you vote against someone who opposes reinstating Glass Steagall?

Keep underestimating Joe Biden. When it's over, Paul Ryan will have to pursue his former career as an anteater.

STILL no answer to the question that was posed. DO YOU ALSO OBJECT TO ANY TAX PAYER MONEY BEING SPENT TO FUND THE DNC CONVENTION? And, yes, I was not entirely correct, a SMALL portion of money will be from the government. Seems to me that $55,000,000.00 privately raised money is a bit more than a drop in the bucket, so Bozo, are you now brave enough to answer the $64 thousand dollar question? Waiting, waiting, waiting..........Crickets! LOL

The bill that castrated Glass Steagall was the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act. I don't see Dodds name there anywhere. The real question is, do you support reinstating Glass Steagall?

1. Yes
2. As long as that is not their stance. Has to be more than just one issue.
3. Yes. And if the others are crap, I will vote for myself.(which more than likely what I will do this year since they all are crap. Obama, Romney, Johnson, doesn't matter.)

The debate I'm waiting for is Obama Romney. Obama can retain and site facts like a computer. Romney is not sure what a fact is and will get destroyed if he tries to run the Rat Wing line of BS.

I know Joe, he is a man who loves the sound of his own voice, he is just about as phoney as a 3 dollar bill, he also loves to tell everyone just how brilliant he is and loves to brag about things he does, unfortunately, he suffers from the usual progressive problem, he plays fast and loose with the truth, he is arrogant and full of himself. He's also a very boring dinner partner, well unless your favorite topic is also Joe Biden. Nope, he really isn't the smartest man on the shelf and the debate between Ryan and he will be too good to miss, Ryan will respectfully wipe the floor with him, that is if we can get the MSM questioners to ask a hard question of Joe. I doubt it, I look forward to the softballs they will gently toss to Joe and the strange questions they will toss, not so gently, to Ryan. I think Ryan will be able to hold his own and not get flustered when he's asked if he too believes that women can't get pregnant if they are raped. That's the sort of questions the so called "independent" moderators will be asking of Ryan, Joe will get the "Boxers or Briefs" question.
