Former President Bill Clinton wants us to know it is not his fault the economy is so bad. I can attribute the economy to many things including the Bush administration. Things went considerably south when former Pres. Bush started putting his hands into the economy. This is a case that no one particular person caused it. It really doesn't matter who's to blame, does it? It just needs to be fixed and the more time spent on who's to blame the less time spent on how to fix it.

It wasn't Bill Clinton's fault. Never was. The problems we are having here in America all stem from a republican regime. Starting mainly with Nixon. And since then we had some bad apples as president. One major one being Reagan. And things have gotten steadily worse since then. We need to stop the bleeding here. As for terrorism, america basically created it by supporting them through the years. Who do you think created Osama Bin Laden? America did.

@inertia4 That is true. We give money to everyone for everything. I think it should stop. I am hoping that we can get a handle on the spending before we run out of money again and belong to another country, like we somewhat do now. I doubt if it will change with the politicians being so greedy about their pay.

@mommaj It is a sad state of affairs. We give Israel probably more money than any other country. That's stupid in my book. We should never have to support any country. But it seems to me that America loves to start wars. That is lame.

@inertia4 I think we should keep the money for our own country at this point. Talking to people on here from different countries, they are all looking to America to take out the ISIS threat.

It's hard to put the blame on a specific person because the chain events are too complicated. This crisis will surely be marked on history , maybe as a new turning point of modern economy.

They will probably use this example in College economy classes in the future. Children if you want to run for President please take a course in Economics and then go live in the real world starting out with nothing.
