It’s a point President Clinton has raised jokingly, but… let’s look at this seriously:
- Bill Clinton balanced the budget
- Bill Clinton cut taxes
- Bill Clinton reduced welfare rolls
So… why doesn’t the Tea Party sing his praises? If these are the things they truly believe in, and truly want from our government, why are they not Clinton fanatics?
Now, this doesn’t mean they need to love everything he did. Hell, I don’t, and I’m a Democrat.
But either they truly believe in the policies they claim to espouse, in which case they should love him, or… well, they’re just partisan Republicans by another name, claiming to want a balanced budget — but not really giving a rat’s you know what about it.
