It is often said those who forget history are doomed to repeat it. When President Clinton left office in 2000 the USA had a balanced budget with a budget surplus. Eight years later when President Bush 2 left office the USA had spent the surplus and the country was in deficit spending with two wars going on.
During those eight years I don’t recall one Republican complaining about spending, not one. If I am wrong who, and when?
Now that President Obama is in office some folks have gotten mad. You didn’t get mad about eight years of economic collapse. You didn’t get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a recount and appointed the 2000 President. You didn’t get mad when the previous administration allowed energy company officials to dictate energy policy. You didn’t get mad when the previous administration started two wars and spent $800 billion in an illegal war. You didn’t get mad when the previous administration borrowed more money from foreign sources than the previous 42 presidents. You didn’t get mad when $10 billion just disappeared in Iraq. You didn’t get mad when the previous administration embraced outsourcing policy that shipped 6 million American jobs out of the country. You didn’t get mad when the previous administration rang up $10 trillion in combined budget and deficit. You didn’t get mad when the horrible conditions at Walter Reed Hospital were reported or when the previous administration failed to catch Bin Laden.
You finally got mad after President Obama was elected.
