    Clinton did help build our credit bill with companies like china a good bit. But Reagan was the one who ultimately started the debt.

    Just as those on the left blamed Bush for everything that happened from the minute after he took office.

    Yeah well, some on the right blamed Obama for everything that happened from the minute after he took office. Are you trying to prove that Republicans and Democrats are the same exact thing and engage in the same exact behavior? I agree.

    Nope. I just find these "why is everyone blaming Bush" arguments to be funny and sad because the right did the same exact thing to Clinton and Obama. It's not like it's much different. When people start complaining about how one side is engaged in a bit of dishonest hyperbole it's ironic because both sides do it all the time. Peas in a pod. All the yelling and finger pointing I suppose is there to try to make us think the two parties are different; but they all do the same things.

    I'm considered left and I didn't start blaming GWB for his massive economic screw-ups until about 2003. I was appalled how bad he bungled our response to 9-11. The whole world was offering to help us go after Al Qaeda and GWB blew them off and then sent our troops in grotesquely understaffed. Had he accepted the world's help, this war would have likely been much more like the Gulf War and our country would be in better shape fiscally and as a world power.

    Good point! One I hadn't considered. Thank you.

    This is why our political system isn't perfect unfortunately. Parties become a bigger priority than the citizens it seems. Everybody seems to be a team player at the worst time.
