    ... ask Conservative if there was a surplus or if Bush was lying when he said that.
    Again, thanks for educating me, all that evil that Bush did caused the Obama results in 2011 including the August employment numbers and second qtr 1% GDP growth. Yes, amazing how the Bush performance led to the current JAR of Obama and the 70% claiming that they have no confidence in Obama's handling of the economy.

    Yes, conservatives seem to forget that the justification for the Bush tax cuts was the Clinton surplus that was slated to rise over the next eight years. What on earth was the government going to do with all that excess revenue?!

    Well, the Republicans solved that problem....

    I disagree with this statement. The 9-11 plot was YEARS in the making and I truly believe that had Gore been elected then the attacks STILL would have happened. I don't blame Clinton exclusively as the mentality of the time was varied on by previous presidents that something like that was unlikely. 9-11 was allowed to happened because of continued failed policies within the intelligence community.

    Umm, aside from that report not saying there was a net job loss, I'm eager to see your explanation of how the U3 unemplyment rate remained at 9.1% from the previous month if there was a net loss since it takes at least a net gain of about 150,000 just to keep the unemployment rate level.

    Hmm wait .. wait .. I seem to remember something about 1993 ... what was it again .. the 1st bombing of the World Trade Center .. under who's watch was that again ?? Guess nothing was being done back then either

    As to your translation, will you please explain to all the folks here .. what one of those things he put into place that was so effective .. did Bush over turn ??

    I am sure that Bush was also responsible for the Chicago Fires, San Francisco Earthquakes, and famine in Africa.

    That was Bush's fault too as he was running for Governor of TX and took his eye off the National security ball.

    We'll never know if Gore would have prevented the attack or not although my personal belief is that he would have at least tried, just as Clinton had done 3 years earlier when he too was handed a PDB by the FBI warning him of a potential attack by Muslim extremists. That conjecture aside, I would hope most would agree that doing absolutely nothing in response to such a warning is almost a certain guarantee that the attack will not be thwarted.

    So Bush was lying when he said that the Clinton surplus justified his tax cuts. That's good to know.
