Despite the yawning federal deficit, Congress hasn't blinked at this price. And while annual defense spending is now as high as it ever was during the Reagan buildup, the US economy as a whole is much larger, making it easier, in economic terms, for the nation to shoulder the bill.

So does that mean the American public is going brunt of the bill? :confused:

No, not you but people like him with their blanket bash bush responses. I bet they have macros for it :lol:

But to answer your question. Yeah looks like we will be paying for this war for a long time coming :( Gotta finish it, hopefully learn from it.

Bill Clinton was one of the presidents who got us etremely wealthy - he used our money well. Some people say, however, that the wealth wouldn't have lasted.

Bill Clinton didn't have shit to do with the internet. Neither did Al Gore. Dukakis could have been our President in the 90's and everyone would have loved him.

You don't have an opinion, you are just a blanket Bush basher. You spew the same shit in EVERY thread that has anything to do with America or the President :rolleyes: Come up with a new line at least :rolleyes:
