Only a liar could say such a thing. The economic troubles we're seeing today started with Clinton. Yes, he had a surplus during his administration - because of his botched policies that finally burst down the road, like any econ 101 student could have warned you about. He mortgaged the future for the now and yet idiots still pat him on the back for his 'success' and bemoan those who were left to clean it up.
