    I heard that douchebag on the radio today claiming that he was responsible for four years of balanced budgets, surpluses and spending cuts.

    1) C'mon 'pubs how many times have you had to drum it into heads of the Clintoon zombies that there never was a balanced budget IRL, and that it was only projected to come into balance in 2002, based upon the 1998 agreement?...Now this is supposed to count as "four years of balanced budgets"?

    2) No balanced budgets, no surpluses...Equally mythical...Total lie.

    3) How many times during the 1995 budget battle did we hear the Wizard of Whoppers go around mewling, sniveling, whinin'-n-cryin' about how the democratics and the media were lying about calling reductions in baseline increases in the budget "spending cuts"?....The budget in '95 was bigger than '94...The budget in '95 was bigger than '96....the budget in '97 was bigger than '96....Now he's responsible for four years of spending cuts?

    I don't know about the spending cuts, but we did have balanced budgets and surpluses for four years. And Newt deserves some credit for it.
