    He certainly had no intention of balancing the budget but Congress controlled the purse strings.

    Remember Hillarycare?

    But it is good to see that others believe balancing a budget is important and a good thing. Do you think Obama will ever be able to accomplish the feat?

    They need the Democrats to actually do it. And the Democrats need the Republicans to do it.

    It makes sense... Each party ONLY complains about the debt when the other party is in office. I think, everybody noticed how the GOP didn't say sh*t about the debt, until Obama was sworn in...

    Re: Adviser: Bachmann likely to enter WH race

    obama's record, framework for the 2012 campaign:

    unemployment in despair, smallest work force in 25 years, not even enough jobs to keep up with population, let alone lift us out, despite almost a trillion spent on the obscene s-word the president can no longer pronounce

    DEBT that has even alice rivlin, clinton's chief econ adviser, warning of a greek-like collapse, hyper inflation and DOUBLE DIP

    housing thru the basement, no bottom in sight, no answers from the white house (except the exemption of fannie and fred from the reg reform), half those hamped have already redefaulted

    high prices---food, oil, consumables---and all the pain associated with inflation, the fully foreseeable fallout from 2.5T of qe

    the states submerged in hopeless sinkholes, no way out, substantially exacerbated by obamacare's massive mandates in the form of unfunded medicaid expansion

    obamacare---the mandates, the taxes, the exemptions, the half tril cuts to medicare while expanding it, the bankrupting of the states...

    the party's persisent efforts to tax ENERGY, both production and consumption, in the midst of our malaise, an almost unamerican approach

    the WAR in afghanistan, casualites there up 400% since the administration ESCALATED, up against its self imposed july deadline, dependent on the likes of the corrupt and kooky karzai for ultimate success

    the intervention in libya---if gadaffi stays we're humiliated, if he goes we're STUCK THERE

    and then there's THE MAN, barack hussein, perception of whom always plays so central a part in americans' bottom line acceptance or rejection of their president

    this is THE MAN who sued the people of arizona, wants to move ksm to manhattan (why does weiner want out), tries to obstruct the drillers in the gulf via the appellate process

    he's also THE FELLA whose doj argued in CA circuit comparing gay marriage to some rather objectionable practices, offensive to those less libertine, at least

    where does obama stand on gay marriage, by the way?

    THE MAN---an indecisive ditherer, amateur and unprofessional, out of touch with his responsibilities

    and that's HILLARY's assessment

    he's also astonishingly unfamiliar with the american disposition---this is the president, we recall, who asked us to rat out our neighbors for expressing fishy thoughts, who declared he did not want to hear from citizens who disagreed with him, who proclaimed it would all be so much easier if he were only president of china, according to the ny times

    http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/11/wo.../11policy.html

    why did obama PUNT the crucial relationship between every american and his or her irs until he ran out of clock?

    in other words, what does HILLARY know that you don't?

    seeya at the polls, pals

    clinton was a master politician who deeply understood the american people

    barack, in contrast, is a rank amateur (according to hillary) in way over his head

    and his perception of american politics is almost alien

    stay up

    Romney care was a disaster, especially after Romney left office and the libs up there tampered with it, but in any case, he tried on the state level, which is where this argument should be.

    Actually, Clinton gave a great lesson in smoke and mirrors....

    While not defending the increase of the federal debt under President Bush, it's curious to see Clinton's record promoted as having generated a surplus. It never happened. There was never a surplus and the facts support that position. In fact, far from a $360 billion reduction in the national debt in FY1998-FY2000, there was an increase of $281 billion.

    Verifying this is as simple as accessing the U.S. Treasury (see note about this link below) website where the national debt is updated daily and a history of the debt since January 1993 can be obtained. Considering the government's fiscal year ends on the last day of September each year, and considering Clinton's budget proposal in 1993 took effect in October 1993 and concluded September 1994 (FY1994), here's the national debt at the end of each year of Clinton Budgets:

    Now come on SW, you can do better than this old, debunked, and tired line....
