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.

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..

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.

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????

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.

Varicose why should we not think Obama is involved?

Because he didn't know about Fast and Furious?

Because he didn't know about the AP records?

Because he didn't know anything about Benghazi needing more security?

Because he can't find his backside with both hands?

Why would we think Obama wasn't involved in the IRS scandal.. probably because he lies about everything that comes out of his mouth that's why!!!

Sorta like the little boy crying wolf.. Just one Lie after another and now his castle is coming down and Michelle's dress isn't big enough for him to hide under.
