Clinton's success came from a Newt Gingrich led congress. And, that only happened after the shut down. Clinton fought the reforms tooth and nail, but, Newt won. Then we had boom years and surpluses. The liberal dominated media is so lost in their fantasy world of idealistic (unrealistic) dreams of the way things should be that they do everything and anything they can to discredit and scandalize anyone (Newt) who does not follow the liberal "Religion". If you are on handouts and want to keep getting them, I can almost understand. If you work for a living, and want Obama back... What is wrong with you???
