    Even a broken watch is right twice each day. In this case, they are right. True, the only reason the budget got balanced, etc. was because klinton had to deal with a Congress controlled by Republicans, but nevertheless, it happened.

    The GOP tried to take credit for something that they didn't have anything to do with.

    The same bunch of GOPer's that "claimed" they balanced the budget under Clinton also unbalanced it under Lil' George.

    To back to 1992 and look at Clinton's campaign promises. One of the main ones was a balanced budget.

    Look at all the GOPers' that "claimed" they balanced the budget and how many of them had a balanced budget campaign promise?

    The answer is......... ZERO!

    And today we have (among other subtractors - did I just make up a word?) a massive Healthcare Reform Bill and a pledge to increase monetary aid in the Middle East. As far as parties go, they are both fabulous.

    The only president ever impeached wisely didn't stand in the way of the balanced budget express train pushed through by the majority Republican Congress.

    Campaign promises from klinton? Only a fool would believe anything that criminal said.

    Brucev,

    A balance budget was one of Clinton's campaign promises in '92 and again in '96. Whether you liked Slick Willy or not he did keep his promise.

    Pretty simple who the fool is.

    Did the Senate finally pass a budget when I was asleep over the last 3+ years?
