So you're saying President Clinton actually helped raise you? Wow. I
woulda figured he would want to disown you as an American for sure.

Wow, I thought you and Mr. Bush would be best buds. Guess I was wrong.
Although to be honest, it's not the presidents fault we are in debt.
It's OUR fault we are in debt. We buy into credit cards and loans and
mortgage's and what not. We aren't forced to, but we do. Americans are
generally irresponsible, especially as of late, with money. No denying
that, but we have no one to blame but ourselves.
