Bill Clinton Lies About Reducing National Debt

"It must be nice to know you can go on a nationally televised political talk show and not be challenged when you make an historically inaccurate claim, especially when it's about yourself.

Such happened Sunday when former President Bill Clinton was interviewed by David Gregory on NBC's "Meet the Press."

The host began the discussion by asking his guest about "pretty significant developments...inside the Republican Party after this turbulent primary season."

Clinton responded by saying members of the Tea Party have "good impulses" concerning the size of government adding, "They believe those in the Republican Party believe that they've talked a good game about balancing the budget, but the debt was quadrupled in the 12 years before I became president and then we paid down the debt for four years, paid down $600 billion on the national debt."

Actually, the national debt never declined when Clinton was President. Not one year.

Guess it's all how you define what "debt" is, and what "national" is and what "boldfaced liar" is.
