Kongchin: While I agree that both Democrats and Republicans have acted with great fiscal irresponsibility, you need to investigate the "surplus" myth more closely. Understand the difference between public debt and intragovernmental holdings. Understand that reducing a projected deficit does not create a surplus. Understand that the national debt increased every year of Clinton's presidency--as it has under every president for the last 70 years.
