So, Cali runs up a massive deficit under Conan the Republican, then balances the budget under a supposedly flaky Democrat. Dubya Bush inherits, then quickly squanders, a big budget surplus from Bill Clinton, creating a monster deficit which Republicans now try to blame on Obama. And Clinton was the first President to balance the budget since … JFK. Yet polls say that people continually rate the GOP as better able to handle their money. Isn’t it ironic? Don’t ya think?
