    Deficits and debts is two different things. Even though he halves deficits, it will keep putting debt on the debt mountain that Bush built.

    Joe Bidens net worth is between $100,000 and $150,000!!! Now tell me how he is going to oversee any spending by anybody when it is proven beyond and rational debatethat he is a financial idiot incapable of saving, investing and smart spending with his $248,000/yr. salary? How can a public figure (Vice President) be in his predictament without being a fool? He is the single poorest politician in Washington.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    I believe the surplus to be correct, but the national debt grew under his watch.

    Clinton added very little to the national debt compared to either of the Bush's or Reagan. The vast majority of our debt was given to us by Republican Administrations.

    They planned!
    How evil.

    Should they not have planned?

    I thought there was "no plan"? We kept hearing this from you folks and Kerry with his "Smarter and Better" plan... that was never revealed. Unless retreat, the Democrat platform of "cut-and-run" was the Kerry plan too.

    Should they have not planned and sought the vote?

    One Constitutional role of the government is to defend against enemies foreign and domestic. Securing the borders. Those are items that should be funded by our tax dollars. But this the socialists cannot do, and they want to do everything else except these things.

    OK, the oil revenue didn't come through... yet. That means they made a false presumption. That's life in the big world. Nothing like the errors of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid... but OK.

    I don't know how you get great intel when the foot soldiers were put OOB and Clinton watched the UN get their asses kicked out of Iraq in 1998. It does not negate the facts that Saddam posed a threat. It was consistent with his history. It was these facts that drove Democrats to vote twice in favor of sending troops.

    Where was Congressional oversight? Oh right! The Dems were busy plugging the leaks created from decades of hostility to our military and intel services... before they did an about-face when the troops needed their support the most.

    The Republicans were believers.
    All but one Democrat were the most vile of opportunists.

    Here is more to chew on. Because Clinton went to the UN for eight years, let them run a good portion of our Iraq policy... got the majority of the whopping 16 UN Resolutions passed... the UN was empowering Saddam... with Clinton's knowledge? He knew about the illegal sale of oil.

    Fact: With the UN corrupt to the core (Oil for Food) allowed Saddam to believe he had the deck stacked in his favor.

    Fact: Saddam was used to hollow threats from Clinton, he didn't reckon with Bush meaning precisely what he said.

    Fact: Bush gave him more than one chance. Saddam refused.

    It looks like the UN corruption gave Saddam false hope. Had the UN been straight, the war... loss of American blood might have been prevented.

    Corruption, like pacifism... and issuing hollow threat after hollow threat... has its costs.
