Kevin Foley’s July 20 column had an interesting headline, “The Disappearing W.” It’s hard to say President George W. Bush is gone when Obama and other liberals have consistently brought up #43 over the past dismal 3½ years to cast blame. Foley does this while claiming Clinton left office with a surplus and then points out that Bush left office with a debt.
But a little lesson for you, Mr. Foley. The spending bills come out of the House of Representatives. During the Clinton surplus it was a conservative House that held Clinton’s feet to the fire. Please recall it was Nancy Pelosi and the liberal members who ran the House during Bush’s terms.
I only wish President Bush used the power of Veto more.
