    I thought we were the only ones that yelled at these idiot MSM talking heads. Very funny Tom. Really enjoyed this one.

      Thank-you. I have observed how the MSM reports on the economy. They twist and turn to make a good economy sound bad under a Republican, and vice versa for a Democrat.

        Um, I have one question. WHEN was it we had a great economy under a democrat POTUS?

        • quinersdiner on May 29, 2017 at 3:20 pm

          In fairness, we had a good economy during Bill Clinton’s years. There were several reasons, including the peace dividend after Reagan and Pope John Paul II defeated the Soviet Union; the dot come boom (before the bust); and finally, the Gingrich/Clinton ‘collaboration’ which resulted in more moderate government spending and welfare reform. Without Newt Gingrich as Speaker, Clinton’s record would have looked much worse. Nonetheless, I do give Mr. Clinton credit for signing welfare reform and moderating spending enough to lead to a balanced budget.

    I’d rather take my chances on the highway in heavier traffic than deal w/ increased heroin over doses in my community.

    Well, as I have said in the past. “YOU CAN’T FIX STUPID! They’ll blame Trump, for a stronger economy, and of course, you know.

    The Clinton years were pretty good for the economy, no denying, but I cant really feel like it was Clinton’s economy. For all the reasons you spoke, I think that economy belonged to a lot of conservatives that dont get the credit for it. A radio show in my area has great voice impersonators. One was a Clinton voice and the other Obama. the Clinton voice would call up during the Obama voice speaking to gloat and brag about balanced budgets. It was a pretty funny bit, but I give most of the credit to the likes of Reagan and Gingrich. I dont believe Clinton would have (on his own) started welfare reform. Note how the next democrat immediately began the business of growing the welfare state.

      So true. Ronald Reagan submitted 8 budgets to Congress. They rejected 7. Had they passed his budgets, the national budget would have been balanced within three years. Since they didn’t, it took a Republican Congress to nurture some discipline in Bill Clinton’s government. I maintain that Gingrich and Clinton were a good team!

  5. […] warn us that this causes increased driving and more traffic deaths. (Seriously, that’s what Norah O’Donnell said on CBS.) Or they’d focus on the Labor Force Participation rate which is not rising […]
