Not looking to pick a fight as I like Clinton, but the main reason there was anything resembling a balanced budget was the fraudulent economy created by the tech bubble.
Had Bush simply carried on with Clinton's policies, there would have been massive deficits as all the 'fake' jobs and the associated taxes vanished.
Clinton & his congress did a good job in general. But it was over in 2000 even if the rules were changed to allow Bubba a 3rd term. The economy his balanced budget was based on was all smoke and mirrors.
Much like Bush's massive growth after the 2000-01 recession was over. More smoke and mirrors on credit and real estate values.
The UK and US have the exact same problems. Unaffordable government programmes and no manufacturing left. Domestic service industries just recycle the same cash and all the cash from real goods heads to Asia and emerging markets. It's death by slow bleed.
Bushes steep and irresponsible tax cuts without counterbalancing budget cuts is what initially fueled that runaway deficit. Add to it an expensive unnecessary Iraq war and the result was runaway deficits.

I do agree wholeheartedly with your assessment on the damage that outsourcing of jobs does to our economy. It seems like both parties do not want to change it. The quick buck mentality with big business seeks the cheapest labor abroad and ignores the fact that unemployed and underemployed people have less money to spend on the goods that are manufactured overseas. If the Conspiracy Theory is right, it looks like the framework of a world goverment is slowly being constructed, namely, the New World Order.

hmmm.

I've got a lot of disagreement with some of the conclusions you draw and where you point fingers.

At a high level we seem to have agreement on

1. Politicians have no spine or sense
2. The loss of manufacturing is an enormous problem
3. Budgets need cutting

I'm completely at a loss as to why there is so little media focus on #2.

I've sacrificed enough listening to this scatter-brained, bimbo Be-Atch in the news and I'm not even in a Union. Where's my relief?

I am impressed

the clinton administration was aware bin laden was in sudan

they pressured sudan to expel him, and when sudan complied they let bin laden flee to afghanistan, where his wealth allowed the taliban to seize power

I screamed like a MADMAN when I saw the WTC towers collapse

then the fool shot cruise missiles into afghanistan in a feeble attempt to kill bin laden - an OPEN attack on the taliban by the US

say what you may about his job performance, but when it really mattered he was a dangerous fool who led his country into peril

may he rot

the problem is pretty simple

if my plant costs and payroll exceed my profit, I send everyone home

before that point is reached I'll be out on the floor looking for the goofoffs who are not producing a profit

that's how a business operates

however government is not a business
it doesn't operate for profit
when outlay exceeds income, you either reduce outlay or raise taxes

government unions get away with piracy because there is no profit/cost limiter
they simply politic for raising taxes to increase income, for higher wages

government unions have to be done away with
government wages may equal but never exceed private sector wages

the problem is government unions and we have to END THEM NOW

NO GOVERNMENT UNIONS

Are you suprised that another republican has surficed with mud in her eyes. Unions will serfice in the next election as wages are cut to bare minimum. Remember the ralley cry is anti union, as unemployement rises back to 15 per cent. All demacratic efforts to ease the pain will end, as services are attacked.

The problem is that she is wrong much more than she is right, not to mention ditsy.
