Political: a post from thinkprogress

Surplus on a Federal not National Debt and a looming Dot Com bubble
Bush "SPENT" way too much and coupled with his "temporary" tax cut didn't do well with his budget gimmicks
Obama is spending the Maximum amount Bush did in his last year and Liberals want to say his spending isn't increasing. That's because we are at the CEILING!!!
Clinton lowered spending by 4% and solved entitlement issues as a LEADER should
What we have today is what I'd have at home if I gave the kids the check book and said "RUN THE SHOW"

We have a completely dysfunctional mess

So what I'm reading is Bush spent like a Liberal....

And Obama kills in war like a Conservative, no?

So aren't we basically in Bush's 4th Term?

The reality is that there is a limit to how much debt the US economy can service. Our options are very limited at this point. Arguing about how we got here doesn't change that.

Think Progress, much like other far left and far right sites, oversimplifies complex problems to fit their basic narrative. It's easy, convenient, lazy and incorrect reporting - Moveon, Breitbart, etc. are all guilty of it. I'd call it B.S. journalism, but that would be an insult to journalists.

This is typical of ThinkProgress posts. Full of liberal mythology, and woefully lacking in historical accuracy. A simple look at a graph or chart of the federal debt (as Yati found) eviscerates the central point (myth) of the post. The left may find comfort in sharing these myths amongst themselves, but there is not much of a connection with reality.

why should we care at this point?

point is,obama is president and he campaigned twice now on jobs and still has no plan for job growth.

you libs,tf,most of all,said "romney,show me
your plans",yet go dumb about odummers' plans.

if jobs aren't created,we're broke and very
soon,numb nuts.

That sure looks like a plan, don't it?

Cisco, you are assuming that this, when in fact it is congress that is to blame for either balancing the budget or not.
Had you been paying attention you would have known that Clinton did not want to balance the budget and they even shut down the government fighting over it. Of course he was more than willing to take credit.
Also keep in mind that we had a booming computer based economy at that time. Of course all of that business went to China, after China bribed the Clinton admin.
The only reason the media talked about Lewinksy was to take the spot light off of the China scandal.
If we have a bad economy now it is because Clinton sold our jobs to the Chinese.
