Bill Clinton Needs To STFU
Bill Clinton is 'disturbed and ticked off'. Apparently this mighty paragon of truthfulness is upset that Republicans aren't telling the 'real' truth, that the economy is just fine and that people aren't out of work or something. But this quote really frosts my backside, "I almost gag when I hear these Republicans lambasting the president and the Democrats in Congress, 'Oh, they're such big spenders, they're just crazy, they're quasi-socialist,'" he said during the rally at the University of Michigan. "I have a simple question: Who's the last president to give you a balanced budget?" You're supposed to say, "You are, Bill Clinton!" without remembering that the only reason the budget was balanced back then was because Republicans had gained control of Congress because a certain president (guess who!) had pushed liberal garbage down the electorate's throat to the point that they kicked Democrats out of office in an historic election. (Hmmm, that sounds kind of similar to this year for some reason.) And another thing, we were trillions of dollars in debt during Clinton's terms, so "balancing the budget" is the same as saying, "Hey everybody! I'm still in debt, but I didn't spend more than I made this month." Now that's an accomplishment to crow about!
