    Who doesn't love Jay Carney?

    The guy is so ****ing arrogant that he actually believes his explanations or "fantasies" are fact and that people will just buy them. Progressive journalists are even calling bull****..

    I will say this tho - I do admire his confidence... Lying to 300 million + citizens takes some epic balls and self confidence.

    You think making the same statement over and over again about a surplus makes the lie less of a lie? You obviously have no concept of what makes up the deficit and that stealing from the SS and Medicare fund and putting it into the general fund creates a surplus in the liberal world.

    Why does that matter? This thread is about the current POTUS.

    I think we will be hearing the word "technically" a lot in the near future.

    "Well technically ___________ , but this is the most transparent administration ever."

    "Well technically the president was in bed so how the hell should he know what is going on?"

    "Well technically the president doesn't correspond with the IRS, so this must have been a case of "Beatles hysteria" or "Obama fanboyism."

    "Well technically we have nothing to do with the media."

    Watch the WH deflect blame on ignorance while trying to promote competence.

    LOL !!

    A "surplus" with a rising debt. A"surplus" with increased spending.

    I mean Clinton being forced to work with a GOP Congress can create a temporary surplus but it means nothing in terms of spending.

    Someone needs to tell Jay Carney there is a difference between being exposed and "transparency."

    Oh no, not this again

    FactCheck.org : The Budget and Deficit Under Clinton

    The Clinton years showed the effects of a large tax increase that Clinton pushed through in his first year, and that Republicans incorrectly claim is the "largest tax increase in history." It fell almost exclusively on upper-income taxpayers. Clinton’s fiscal 1994 budget also contained some spending restraints. An equally if not more powerful influence was the booming economy and huge gains in the stock markets, the so-called dot-com bubble, which brought in hundreds of millions in unanticipated tax revenue from taxes on capital gains and rising salaries.

    The Treasury Department which is the bank account of the United States doesn't show a surplus so you better take that up with them. What you and others don't seem to understand is that there are two parts to the budget, public and intergovt. holdings. Taking money from intergovt holdings(SS and Medicare along with other Govt. long term obligations) leaving a deficit in that category doesn't make for a total surplus. What Clinton had was a public debt surplus but an intergovt. holding deficit making for a total deficit thus no total surplus. Deficits occurred every year under Clinton so don't you think if there was a surplus that there wouldn't be any deficits?

    they understand.

    but when it comes to politics, they don't care about honesty and accuracy. our total debt went up, and we also had a surplus. liberal math
