Hey Xtra, if you understood economies you would understand why Clinton had surpluses and why the economy started tanking under Bush.
Ever hear of the Dot Com bubble? Which Clinton had the luxury of using to build the coffers during his presidency? He also used accounting tricks to manipulate the budget to show surpluses where none existed.
I believe Reagan said it best - "Well, the trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, but that they know so much that isn't so."
