The "stupid"economy that Clinton/Gore left to Bush/Cheney with a SURPLUS....BUSH/CHENEY managed to turn it into a 10 trillion dollar deficit in 8 years, with and illegal war in Iraq to feed the military industrial complex, and tax cuts to the ultra rich who didn't need it! ! !....that economy earlybird ! ! !

I think with high inflation and a growing recession we have no economy to watch, but Economy might be some new reality show on TV.
The energy induced cold war leaders/leadership that were put in place by the USA and Russia were eliminated is all we accomplished. But by doing that we managed to save less lives than were killed in my opinion. When it comes down to life or death money somehow becomes less important.

I'm surprised there wasn't a knee jerk "no" majority vote here.

MHW, the surplus of which you speak was only a surplus in the budget for the year. The debt went higher under Clinton too.

What else could Obama focus on. He claims to know NOTHING about anything.. so how could he focus on all the things/scandals he claims he knows nothing about.
And from the looks of the last 5 years Obama knows nothing about the economy either.. Pretty obvious he knows nothing!!
The Conservatives knew it from the beginning the liberals are too ignorant to realize ignorance at its finest.. They like the shiny new object even if it isn't worth anything.,. Obama is fools gold..
rickrod Bush was to blame for the high gas prices so Please give credit to Obama as he is also the POTUS like Bush was. All the high prices of gas were Bushes fault.. Hence Obama is the big kookie here. The price of high gas is Obamas fault.. No one else's..

Rugbyreader get out the darn dictionary before you comment..
scan·dal /'skandl/Noun 1.An action or event regarded as morally or legally wrong and causing general public outrage: "a bribery scandal". 2.The outrage or anger caused by such an action or event.
know gas prices is real news MDN 3.06 in south carolins, and 4.26 in Minot. Thanks ND Republicans!
Just could it be a 2 trilion dollar illegal war thet murdered 4,500 American troops, and slaughtered 50,000 American troops at an unkown cost caused the debt. Oh and then we spend Billions on a library for the criminal. But wait the was a Republican.
So the Minot Daily is asking a stupid question that must have been submitted by Mitch McConnel. This paper is so slanted in its views that it is hard to really believe any of the editorial questions or statements it submits.

Rugby Reader is the IRS Republican? Have you watched any news anywhere? Or is MSNBC still playing with the girls in Ohio and forgetting that the IRS HAS ADMITTED to the claims against the Tea party.
When you make statements like you make it clears all doubt about how ignorant some posters REALLY are.
Vietnamvet69, the best poll question the minot daily could ask is does Minot need another newspaper.

"After all, Veritas, it is their opinion."
That's right loco...because you know, everybody has one!
Lucky for us, the MDN has chosen to reveal it's posterior prejudices so often it's starting to look like the potato salad at the picnic no one wants to eat.

Varicose How can you call it prejudice? It was a question.. How does a question become a prejudice? Obama made the comment.. So how does that make the newspaper prejudice if the blooming idiot in DC made the statement..
Really hard to stick up for a guy who is so backwards he can't control his own people he is in charge of.. What say you Libs????
bill, never saw one poll question from the Minot Daily after the truth came out that Bush started a WAR on LIES.
The so-called; action or event regarded as morally or legally wrong and causing general public outrage
perpetrated by the media and unsubstantiated by the GOP. If only they had some facts to support accusations Obama's poll numbers wouldn't have seen increases in the last week.
Want to hear a legitimate scandal... Read Lloyd Omdahl's review of ND Legislature in the Bis Trib today.
Tax relief,tax cuts given to all besides actual North Dakotans...Seems we've been GOP'd again and the minority response published last week was spot on.
No property tax relief for us...just lots of tax breaks for those special out of state folks who...seem to be more important!
“If the targeting wasn’t targeting, if the targeting wasn’t based on philosophy, how come only conservatives got snagged?” [Republican] Roskam confidently asked.
“They didn’t, sir,” Miller responded. “Organizations of all walks and all persuasions were pulled in. That’s shown by the fact that only 70 of the 300 organizations were tea party organizations, of the ones that were looked at by TIGTA [Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration].
Replicons....we create scandals we do not create jobs.

rickrod, nothing like posting false conclusions. From hispanicbusiness**** While the USA may be dripping in new-found crude oil deposits, and early May supplies were at their highest levels since the early 1930s, issues at a handful of refineries that turn crude into gasoline and diesel fuel underscore how kinks in the supply chain can cause quick surges in what consumers pay at the pump. Gas prices in Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma and Wisconsin have jumped up to 27 cents a gallon in the past week alone. Behind the rise: Outages and extended maintenance has curbed output at refineries in Joliet, Ill.; Whiting, Ind.; Tulsa; and El Dorado, Kan. In Minnesota, regular gas now averages $3.99 a gallon -- an all-time state record.
disgusted, price of gas in Minot today is 4.29 and not 3.99. But I must say your very good at taking info out of the Oil Times Paper, and using it for your talking points.

GREGORY: …I asked Dan Pfeiffer about it. You can you talk about a culture. Do you have any evidence that the President of the United States directed what you call a culture of intimidation at the IRS to target political opponents?
SEN. MCCONNELL: I– I don’t think we know what the facts are. All I can tell you is…
GREGORY: But that hasn’t stopped you from– from accusing.
Basically, Sen. McConnell admitted that Republicans don’t have any evidence to back up their IRS allegations. They are investigating an Obama connection to the IRS scandal because they are falsely attributing some beliefs to him that he does not hold.
McConnell’s claim about Obamacare was a lie.
Republicans have been screaming about an Obama culture of corruption since the president took office, but when asked to prove their allegations, they offer zilch. Without even realizing it McConnell proved that all of these “Obama scandals” are nothing more than political fishing trips...
Well, they caught
