elections have consequences

So you know all that work Clinton put into lowering not just the deficit, but the ratio of national debt to GDP? The work that consumed nearly his entire second term and that required him to concede significant cuts to the social safety net? The work that exhibited one of the rare true compromises between Republicans and Democrats to achieve something useful in this era of Rush Limbaugh and casual comparisons to Nazis? The work that had us on track to pay off the national debt entirely by 2012?

It's now all gone. Thanks, Mr. MBA President.
