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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Are you honestly going to try to float the argument that the debt has gone DOWN during Obama’s administration? Somebody definitely is drunk.
