Congressional Budget Office - Home Page). I understand that you may not agree with the way the government keeps its statistics, but it is a fact that by official gov't statistics, there was a surplus for Clinton's last few years in office. Sorry, your view is fringe.
I did not support the war at any point, as the aims for it did not make sense."Quagmire"? Right out of the leftwing manual. Check out the Democratic quotes which led up to the war in Iraq. These are the people that had the same intelligence information as Bush. The Senate was under control of the Democrats and voted 76-23 in favor of the war, supported the war until the war turned south and even remained negative as Bush turned the tide and won the war. Obama has adopted the Bush doctrine in Iraq and the Bush Secretary of Defense.
It has not been remotely worth the lives and treasure it's cost. The American public originally supported it because they were told there were WMD there and even that Saddam Hussein might be behind it. As the reality became clear, people changed their minds about the war. Bush's Secretary of Defense, Rumsfeld, bungled the war for 6 years. Bush finally replaced him with someone competent when Dems won big in 2006, and Bush knew he was going to be out.
This is hysterical. Some Democrats tried very hard to impeach Bush, but they were in the minority for most of his time in office. Just because he wasn't impeached doesn't mean he didn't deserve it.
Neither did Bush, but that isn't what the leftwing is going to tell you. Had Bush done what you and the left claimed, why wasn't he impeached? Democrats preferred to have the talking points to the facts.
Wow, do you even know how you sound? You disagree with me, so I don't know anything about how the gov't works and all of my views are based on opinions and not facts. What a joke!
You really don't know how our govt. works, do you? obama was in the Senate when the housing crisis bubble burst. He and the Democrats prevented Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac oversight rules to be even debated. Barney Frank and Chris Dodd did more damage to the financial institution along with Obama and his ties to ACORN than Bush ever could or did.
Obama Caught in a Major ACORN Lie - Big Government
My views are backed by facts, yours are backed by opinions.
Yes, I'm sure that Obama had more impact on the economy while serving as a junior senator than Bush did while president of the United States.http://www.debatepolitics.com/images...n_rolleyes.gif
That makes so much sense. Now that Obama's out of the Senate, which junior senator is running the economy now?
And you say that I don't know anything about how the gov't works...
