I think it is interesting that someone would post a link to a Washington Times article and label it as "Washington Post."

Is that a deliberate attempt at misrepresentation?

Yeah, I was wondering about that, too. The Washington Times is a joke of a paper; I thought I was going to something on the Post and then saw the masthead and didn't bother to read past the headline. Didn't think to point out the discrepancy, though. Don't know if it's still run by religious cultists with their own agenda or what, but when I lived up there it was appalling how many distortions there were in their articles. Caused a lot of trouble.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

One hears "Washington Post", fifty times to one over "Washington Times".

My error.

The Post would never report anything like this, no matter how truthful.

Prediction, 3 years from now Tanko will post a link from the Wash Times calling President Hillary Clinton the worst President of all time.

All I know is that Everything was just fine and dandy when Clinton was in office.

You missed the bursting of the dot.com bubble in 2000 that elected Bush. He did cut social security in 1993 without a single Republican vote.
Maybe that's what you liked about him?

that is the only argument that I can make as well. All I know is that when Clinton was in office my small business was booming and I was making a lot of money. Him being in office probably had nothing to do with that but its enough for me to sway the vote to him.

Yeah, fine and dandy.

You forgot that he signed the legislation to repeal the Glass-Steagall Act which set the stage for the economic collapse of 2008.

Then he blamed the Republicans for repealing it.

You also forgot that he granted a waiver that allowed China access to Loral's guidance system when their rockets literally couldn't make it off the launch pad.

This, after they sold nuclear technology to Pakistan.

"Loral and another firm, Hughes Electronic Corp., gave information to the Chinese that, according to the Pentagon, may have helped China hone its ICBM guidance systems--a possible breach that has been under investigation by the Justice Department for 18 months." -CNN

You forgot about the Chinese General who threatened us with a nuclear attack in 2005, thanks to that technology. Nuclear Threat

You forgot that Clinton increased taxes retroactively when assuming office.

And that the economy was going nowhere until the Republican Congress reduced taxes in 1997.

He took credit for that too.

In the last 40 years?
That's easy-Nobama.
He accomplished what absolutely NO ONE thought was possible in November 2008; he not only brought the Republicans back from the dead he made them the majority party. All in just 2 years. Unprecedented. It took even Jimmy Carter 4 years.
Oh, and he's already put more new guns on the street in his presidency than any other in history. More rifles. More shotguns. More handguns. More assault weapons.
A Republican Congress and more guns than ever. Be proud progressives. Si si puede!
