Everybody who believes that a president, any president, affects the economy with his particular policy, raise your hand. You there in the back, wake up!

It isn't the president, it is what buyers, savers, and investors do that drives the economy. And also what happens in the energy market, one of the few places where a cartel actually controls pricing to some degree, at least negatively.

In controlled economies like the good old USSR, the head despot can control the economy, until that economy bumps into a free market. Then it gets its red corpuscles sucked out of it by the profit motive of millions of independent investors thinking for themselves.

Look at the present US economy. It is growing faster than most other industrialized countries despite having a huge national (and individual) debt load. If it were practically any other country on Earth, inflation would be hog-wild. The current system influencing the economy is all wrong, but the economy is growing lickety-split.

Psychology rules. People think the USA is good for the debt, so the USA IS good for the debt. To change that, all it would take would be for enough whining naysayers to get a big enough megaphone and shout, "The Emperor Has No Clothes!" Then the economy woul drop faster than a run-away coal elevator down a mineshaft.

However, if confidence (psychology) is strong, then we probably will get through this debt load, shrink the fed gov and maybe, pay-off our credit cards and mortgages.

thats the proof..
as sartre observed, truth is subjectivity...there are many people who believe what you believe (although they usually aren't as intransigent [or psychotic ]as you seem to be) and many who do not. and that, my friend, is what makes a horse race! well, that and the little guy sitting on his back whipping the crap out of him, but i digress........

well i'll agree that i can't differentiate between fantasy and reality but i don't think it was clinton who is responsible for it. i would attribute that to a slight schizoaffective thought process and about 90 grateful dead concerts....

You're the one who needs the education. You have an economy that is doing reasonably well and the treasury is running record defecits. Exactly how do you propose to correct these defecits? Think the economy is going to pick up more steam any time soon?

BTW, you got six more months until our troop strength in Iraq drops below 10,000 men, by your own words. But, you will probably backpedal on that one and blame it on Clinton, like you usually do.

.............LOL..........yep, he's been programmed by GWB and company. No way to fix it, I'm afraid. You can't even surgically extract the chip, unfortunately.

Hell of a nice guy. Knows quite a bit about vehicles and repairs. Sad, really.

You know, in my opinion, Clinton is doing a really lousy job of being our president from 5 years ago. Why, he's the worst ex-president ever! FORTUNATELY, we will have a new ex-president in no time.
