    Sounding more and more like his President. “Don’t hold me accountable. Just give me your money!”

    Those dad loans have some mighty high interest.

    I can suggest a solution for that problem.

    Per FactCheck, the Clinton-era “surplus” was due to increases in Social Security taxes on payroll, not due to a growth-oriented fiscal policy. There is also evidence the tech bubble attributed to the perceived surplus but that comes from another source.

    The bottom line is the bottom line, Clinton could have spent the extra money and didn’t.

    We use to borrow from my parents but we got tired of hearing my mom complain. Then my b-i-l wife did the same and we got an ear full from her. Then we had to borrow elsewhere until paid off. We always paid the parents off. Now we do without.

    Remember, everything that goes wrong is either Bush’s fault or Global Warming. Wait! Global warming was Bush’s fault, too.

    And now the democrats/Obama have risen to the challenge and proven that they are the all time champions at tax and spend. Together the congress and Obama have set record deficits and debts so high that it’s possible no one will ever be able to match them again.

    I would say in this case that drunken (fill in the blank) would be replaced with drunken democrats. Drunk on power, that is.

    The bottom line is that Clinton never actually had extra money, he just got closer than anyone else in the recent past to balancing the budget (though I suppose you could say he did have extra money if you count intergovernmental loans).

    pauldamin: The last president with a surplus was Grover Cleveland, but ballot-stuffing stopped that.
