    From reader and frequent photographer Matt in Colorado:

    I think this pretty much sums it all up. As my dad says, “Look at what 200 years of republicans compromising with democrats has gotten us. $15 Trillion in debt and nothing to show for it.”

    Zachriel still hasn’t disputed that we have nothing to show for $15Trillion in debt. The only time the Republicans haven’t kissed ass is when Gingrich took Clinton kicking and screaming to a balanced budget.

      That returns us to the original point. It is quite possible for the two parties to balance the budget. We know this because the U.S. had structural cash surpluses just a few years ago.

        Yes, a budget balanced on higher marginal tax rates and a booming dot com economy built on a bubble waiting to burst. Any look, it did burst at the end of the Clinton era.

    Zachary is pre programmed.

    It appears the Clinton Doctrine is about to be re launched. This was demonized by Obama in his 08 campaign – now 1 2 3….
