Why Obama Can’t Bring Back
the 90s Economic Boom

Fiscal Times, by Josh Boak

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/7/2012 5:28:04 AM

When selling his tax hikes to the public, President Obama often advertises the economic gravy train that chugged through the Clinton-era as proof that higher taxes won’t derail growth. Bill Clinton in 1993 raised top marginal rates on the wealthiest to 39.6 percent, the same level Obama wants to restore them to as part of the fiscal cliff talks with congressional Republicans. The administration’s nuanced argument—backed by a spate of economic studies—is that the economy can easily weather the increase, but statements from Obama and his deputies occasionally insinuate that boom times will

People will never understand that the tech boom is what got Clinton through the 90´s not his stupid tax increase.Clinton survived in spite of the tax increase not because of it. But he liberals are always taking coincidences and converting them to some sort of scientific proof.Using superstorm sandy is the latest excuse for the climate alarmers to go nuts.

Clinton wasn´t anti buiness and anti white people getting ahead like Obama is and that´s why the economy is failing.Obama is using virtual drone attacks to target successful white republicans who he considers the enemy and who needs to be punished. Why would a president even say another American needs to be punished to begin with.
Crime is running rampant in this country and you don´t hear a peep from Obama about those people needing to be punished. Once again boy scouts are being robbed of christmas tree money.Farmers are having their hay stolen. Workplace theft of copper along with other construction material.

Obamacare premiums are an anywhere,anytime tax increase without it going through congress.

Lowering capital gains and welfare reform created a flood of revenue in the late 90´s and they were republican initiatives,not Clintons.Things like a 100,000 cops was a Dick Morris invention during triangulating,stealing republican concepts.

When enough people will admit to the truth that what Clinton benefitted from was actually the REAGAN era economic boom, then maybe we will get somewhere. Problem is as I see it is that libs prefer to go for the short term solution, ergo they call it Clinton, not Reagan. Clinton really did nothing except sell our secret stuff to the Chicoms for campaign money, and filthy up our WH among other things.

When the "House" starts changing the rules in it´s favor the smart money pulls out.

When they start picking the winners and losers the smart money finds a new game or just waits for the rule of law to return.

The economy stagnated during Clinton´s first term. He didn´t even get 50% of the vote in 1996. Spending cuts by the Republican Congress and the capital gains tax cut are what stimulated the economy, not tax increases.

Clinton was there at the right time. The buffoon has been "lucky" nearly all of his life. He had very little to do with the economic situation at the time, he just rode the boom for all that it was worth. He is a liar, philanderer of the first order, that pretty much sums it up IMHO.

One thing that has always baffled me is why the GOP has never refuted the ´ Clinton Surplus´ myth. The drones would have us believe that it was stored in a building in DC; managed by Scrooge McDuck with security provided by the Beagle Boys. Liberal historians ,aka the MSM, have conveniently dropped the word ´projected´ when mentioning the stash that Geo W Bush squandered on two wars.

I see a bunch of lying excuses from losers and failures. The economy has always before Obama, but isn´t now because Obama has spent the country into bankruptcy and grown the government to such an extent that it takes everything, so there is no money for growth. The only thing Obama´s liars say that is true is that they can´t do it. That is true, they can´t do anything but ruin this country.

But but Sheila Jackson Lee said the surplus was 5.6 trillion dollars.

Why shouldn´t we believe these folks.

Poor Dems; once again proving their inability to do dynamic analysis, and correlation.

But hey, math is hard.

President Obama’s ‘Selfie Doctrine’

In these selfie times when freedom, joy and posterity are just a head-tilt, grin and finger-click away, it is only fitting that the United States of America would have as commander-in-chief the undisputed King of Selfies. The Selfie Presidency for the Selfie Generation in a Selfie World. President Obama is that rightful king. There he is with the greatest baseball players of our day. The president mugging for a selfie outside the White House. Later he feigned outrage when it became public that the picture of him with Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz and a “44” jersey was just part of

Good news: thanks to a ruling by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Monday, the "most transparent administration in history" is going to have to tell American citizens when it believes it´s legally entitled to kill them. The lawsuit arose out of Freedom of Information Act requests by two New York Times reporters for Office of Legal Counsel memoranda exploring the circumstances under which it would be legal for U.S. personnel to target American citizens. The administration stonewalled, asserting that "the very fact of the existence or nonexistence of such documents is itself classified," and a federal district judge

How Lindsey Graham
outmaneuvered the tea party

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. — Sen. Lindsey Graham recognized the threat years before it had a chance to form — and knew immediately what he had to do. After the tea party wave in the 2010 election, right-wing groups were itching to get one of South Carolina’s newly elected conservative congressmen to challenge Graham, the blunt-spoken, deal-making congressional veteran of two decades. Rep. Mick Mulvaney, a favorite of the grass roots, was high on their list. So when Graham got wind in 2012 that Mulvaney wanted a seat on the House Financial Services Committee, he quietly lobbied his longtime friend, Speaker John Boehner, to

The Problem With Student-Loan Forgiveness

If you have student loans, chances are you wish there was a way to make them disappear. And in a way, there is: The federal government now offers three repayment plans that lower monthly payments and will—eventually—forgive remaining debt. A separate plan forgives loans for people who take certain public-service jobs. Some of these options, however, are so new that nobody knows how well they´ll serve borrowers. Even when it comes to well-established repayment plans, many students don´t truly understand their options. And some analysts say that policy adjustments are needed to ensure that students don´t get too comfortable taking on

BOOM: The Left’s Favorite Talking
Point Disproved by Science

The Democratic Party’s obsession with income inequality and “the one percent” is factually misguided, science has found. Over the weekend, leading academic professor Mark R. Rank discussed the findings of a recent scientific study on income inequality in the New York Times. It turns out that, according to scientific data, the Left’s horror stories about a rigid class structure in the United States fueled by nefarious, wealth-hoarding one-percenters is false. “The picture drawn of the 1 percent has been that of a static population, just as the 99 percent is often portrayed as unchanging,” Rank writes. “There is a line drawn between

Raced-Based Preferences Forever

You can often tell when advocates of one side in an argument fear they will ultimately lose. They change their branding. A few years ago, warnings about “global warming” were replaced with scare stories about “climate change.” One reason? The Earth had stopped appreciably warming in the late 1990s, making the change a PR necessity. Supporters of affirmative action are now signaling similar weakness. What was called “racial quotas” in the 1970s and has been referred to as “affirmative action” since the 1990s is giving way to a new term: “race-sensitive admission policies.” The language shift is telling — race-based preferences

Would you boycott a family dinner because your grandfather holds some politically incorrect views about welfare recipients? Or, would you uninvite a neighboring family from attending a block party after learning that they attend an evangelical church that upholds a traditional definition of marriage? Most reasonable people would say “no,” adhering to the old adage that it’s rude to talk politics in polite company. Unfortunately, this rule of etiquette that has governed civil society for ages seems to be quickly evaporating in the world of commerce, as highlighted by the now notorious case of Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Dole: Cruz, Paul & Rubio

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives
