It was a lie, when Bush should up for work there wasn't an extra penny to be found, and there was a recession in fact Clinton complained that Bush was causing it by talking about it during his campaign. I remember distinctly Clinton claiming that Bush was causing the recession by merely talking about it. Furthermore in no way did I say that the lack of a surplus made it okay for Bush to spend lots of money like Obama did. I disagree with Bush then, and I still do today.
Then, once again, you need to be more clear when you communicate because it sure looked like you were making excuses when you mentioned a recession. Why would you bother mentioning it otherwise?

There's more than just Clinton's charts and projected budget showing a surplus. Which source would you consider acceptable and why?
