Yeah, it's been a while.

Before we start naming a President who balanced the budget, perhaps we should take a refresher course on who actually approves, funds and implements the budget. In the case of Bill Clinton, he submitted a budget, but it was the Gingrich Congress that legislated the budget in his term. He simply signed off on the product they produced.

Again I will point out we have drifted off the subject. But in a way, not so much. Some here have suggested our worst enemy is from within. Some of the arguments and points presented in this conversation tend to prove the point.

IT IS US!

I wish Newt was still in the picture. I have a feeling Big Don has consulted with him.

It's more than a feelin. THE Donald has most certainly consulted with Newt. Newt has said as much.

After his victories with Contract with America, and tight control over the GOP's in Congress, the Quasi RINO's of GW Bush booted him out in 2001. That gave us a Republican "controlled" Congress with progressives calling the shots. 6 years later the GOP, deservedly, lost the Congress. 2 years later, the White House.

They are currently squandering their opportunities again. One of which is to curb spending to meet revenues. Yeah, we could use Newt back in there again.
