We had a surplus under Clinton because he managed the economy successfully. We have a deficit under Bush because he spent more of our money than he was taking in and is now borrowing from foreign countries. It amazes me that Republicans who care so much about fiscal responsibility don't seem to grasp the fact that their party spends more money than a thirteen year old heiress in Tiffany's.

"We need a leader who is going to compromise and do what is best for the entire country, not a few special interest groups." I agree. I also think that economic situations that occur after a President leaves office can add to the confusion. For example, the recession that happened after Regan left office. Bush Sr. was kind of left with the blame, even though his 4 years didn't cause it. I do, however, think that GW Bush has been terrible for our economy. Lowering taxes while spending more has created debt that really ties the hands of future generations. There are so many basic programs, like maintaining roads and bridges, that have been sacrificed. There are 16,000 bridges in the same state of disrepair that the Minnesota bridge as in, that will not get their inspections this year because there isn't enough money. That is sacrificing the safety of citizens for budget incompetence.

I just read this on CNN - The Republican National Committee said Monday it is asking cable networks not to air what they described as a “maliciously false” ad about John McCain from the Democratic National Committee – and accused Democrats of illegally coordinating efforts with the party’s presidential candidates. The RNC said the ad was in legal violation because its content was misleading. Asked about the prospect of legal action from Republicans in a conference call late Monday afternoon, DNC Chairman Howard Dean responded: “Let them do it.” The 30-second spot, slated to run on CNN and on MSNBC, highlights McCain’s comment that it would be acceptable if U.S. troops remained in Iraq for 100 years. McCain, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, was talking about a peace-keeping mission, not active conflict. "This is a complaint about the facts that are being misrepresented in this ad," said RNC general counsel Sean Cairncross. "Based on this being a deliberate falsehood. We are saying to the stations, 'You have an obligation.' The complaint did not alter CNN's original plans. “We have received the letter from the RNC. We plan on airing the ad beginning tomorrow,” the network said in a statement released Monday afternoon. So the same can be said for Hillary and Barack's campaigns - why can't they grow a backbone and keep this race "clean" by not allowing the DNC to run an ad that distorts what McCain was saying?

We had a surplus under Clinton because he cut the military to a third of its size. Many of the military industries once funded by the government became privately owned, and now those for-profit companies are moving those jobs overseas. Sound familiar?? We could play the blame game on the economy until the cows come home, and we would be wasting our breaths. What we need is a leader who isn't going to spend the first four monthes blaming the other side because they can't get legislation through. We need a leader who is going to compromise and do what is best for the entire country, not a few special interest groups.

I think the only type of prejudice we should tolerate in this country is prejudice against Politicians, gosh this election has made me sick of all of them and their bull.

If McCain can't even pursuade his own party, how can he be an affective leader? As President, he will be in charge of rallying American citizens and world leaders to his cause. I think it is very weak of him to just throw his hands up and roll over. If he was sincere about keeping this race "clean" he would have a backbone.

I think the economy is partisan. I mean for eight years under Clinton we had a surplus. Under Bush the dollar is worthless, the economy is in a recession and everyone's losing their job. Apparently the economy hates Republicans.
