And Another Thing...

As for the Republicans, fifty years have shown they can't govern without breaking the bank. Starting with Richard Nixon, every Republican president has left the dollar lower, the federal budget deficit higher, the American trade position weaker, and the U.S. manufacturing work force smaller than when he took office.

But it is only fair to note that the last president to give us a balanced budget before Clinton was Nixon. "But," you retort, "he left the national debt higher when he left office!" Yes, he did, as did Clinton.

Y'know, the sad thing about Nixon is he did some things so right (har har), and then other things so wrong, you wonder if he had multiple personalities and depending on the one dominant that day....
