    Face reality, Con .... the 2001 recession began while Republicans controlled the Senate, the House, and the executive branch.
    Really? So Daschle stole the title of Senate Majority Leader in 2001? Wow, your ignorance has no bounds.

    Oh, Good Lord, here we go again, debt went up every year thus if there was a surplus why would the debt go up? Stop being foolish, a surplus in public debt was offset by a deficit in intergovt holdings(SS and Medicare) thus causing a net debt increase and higher debt service. Making your same claims over and over again doesn't make it true

    How about it, Clinton took office with a 4.4 trillion dollar debt that went to 5.7 trillion debt, where was the surplus?

    Yes, here we go again with Con using two sets of books. In any case, there is no question that deficit spending plummeted under Clinton -- even you can't deny that. If his successor had been responsible he would have started paying down debt instead of handing out tax cuts like party favors.

    WTF?? You think the unemployment number drops when people retire?? What does people retiring have to do with the unemployment numbers? When people retire, the only number that drops is the labor force.

    But then, I don't really expect someone who believes Democrats conrtrolled the Senate when the 2001 recession began to understand that.

    Right, Clinton couldn't stop the Reagan deficit train on a dime, unfortunately. It took him until his second term to start lowering the debt -- which in fact he did if you correct for inflation. Oh, I forgot -- you're not supposed to use constant dollars if it doesn't support wingnut talking points!!

    Yes, and there is no question as to where it came from. Who appropriates the money? But to claim there was a total surplus is a lie.

    Clinton's second term was with total GOP Control of Congress, how did you miss that fact? Take a civics class

    Before you call me ignorant, it might behoove you to do some homework and learn two dates:

    1) When did the 2001 recession begin?

    2) When did Democrats take over the Senate?

    After you smack yourself on the forehead I hope to get an apology from you for calling me ignorant when you're the one parading it like you just scored a touchdown with it.
