    Let's put it this way. Since I'm not wrong, the only question you have to ask is why aren't members of Congress and put in jail for pulling tricks with the numbers that would put any Enron exec in jail instantly.

    They lied to you.

    You don't have to believe the lie.

    If you want to be free, you'll stop believing their lies.
    Question: did the deficit go up or down during Clinton's administration? Followup: how about during Carter, Reagan, Bush the elder, and Bush the younger?

    If you look at total public debt, it increased throughout Clinton's two terms.

    Government - Debt to the Penny (Daily History Search Application)

    On January 20, 1993, the total public debt was 4,188,092,107,183.60.

    On January 20, 1998, the total public debt was 5,495,525,658,807.45

    On January 20, 1999, the total public debt was 5,623,807,213,463.02

    On January 20, 2000, the total public debt was 5,706,174,969,873.86

    On January 19, 2001, the total public debt was 5,727,776,738,304.64

    If there was a budget "surplus" and debt was increasing, there's some funky accounting going on, no?

    Hello?

    Question: Did The Rapist President have a budget surplus, as claimed?

    Answer: No.

    Question: Did The Rapist President have a Cold War to Fight?

    Answer: No.

    Question: Did The Rapist President have to clean up after the Democrat spawned S&L Crisis?

    Answer: No.

    Question: With the economy booming, did The Rapist President cut, marginalize, and eliminate any government programs intended to aid the poor and inept during times of economic downturn?

    Answer: No.

    Question: Was The Rapist President the most corrupt man to ever occupy the Oral...Oval Office?

    Answer: Beyond measure, yes.

    Those are several of the facts you have to address when heaping praise upon The Rapist Presidency.

    Because of those facts, no honest American can praise The Rapist Presidency.

    So what does that make you?

    The deficit under The Rapist Presidency went down (didn't go to zero, didn't go negative), because, and only because, revenues rose with expenditures dropped for conditions that had absolutely no connection to any of the actions of the Rapist President.

    Now, you mention The Idiot President and want to discuss his economic success. Well, Carter was the most inept president the nation ever had, and his utter failure as president got his sorry economically malaised ass hurled to the curb at the end of his first and thank the god that doesn't exist, only term.

    Reagan the Great repaired what The Idiot broke, and then broke the Soviet Union, bringing the Cold War to an end.

    The Oath Breaking President, Bush, had to clean up the aforementioned S&L crisis the Democrats imposed, and because he was foresworn, his tax hikes caused a recession that decreased federal revenues, just like The Messiah President is working so hard at doing.

    You're trying to say that we're supposed to worship The Rapist President because by accounting gimmicks illegal in private industry, some fancy book-cooking propagandists managed to show how wonderful everything was in the 1990's by falsely showing that a surplus that didn't exist did exist and the planets were aligned and the Age of Acquarius was upon us, and then the EVIL Bush smote the Angel of Rape from On High and the gates to the Garden of Paradise were closed to all.

    Yeah, we can see what you're trying to say, buddy.

    We don't agree with it.

    I wasn't a little child then, and I'm not Benjamin Button.

    Only way you will find out if you are right is if you answer my simple two questions. Your absolute fear of doing so is telling.

    I've already explored, in depth, the irrelevancy of the deficit going down under The Rapist presidency and explained The Idiot presidency sufficiently to indicate his irrelevancy, also.

    Are you trying to claim that The Rapist Presidency was better because, by trying to everything to prevent it, the economy grew in spite of what the Rapist did, and therefore, the Rapist was a better President than The Bumbling Liberal President who managed to reverse the recession the Rapist finally left office with, and managed also to achieve six straight years of postive economic growth while responding to the economic twang caused by the terrorists Clinton failed to do anything about, and thereafter fighting two simultaneous wars?

    You're trying to claim that a president with a predilection towards sexual molestation and lying who was lucky enough to not actually have to do anything is a better president than the man that had to clean up the messes The Rapist left behind, and did so fairly well.

    Six years economic growth, new jobs created, from inheriting the Rapist's recession and dealing with significant economic issues. That's a fact of the Bumbling Liberal Presidency you people have to deal with.

    Bush didn't do a number of things he absolutely had to do. But he managed to grow the economy in spite of his liberal flaws anyway.

    Why are you so needing to avoid the subject? It was simple questions, and you still do everything in your power to avoid them.
