While the unemployment rate was dropping each year under Obama, the Republicans kept talking about the rising debt. Even though they knew that its almost impossible to get out of a huge recession without debt to fund a stimulus but it was a valid point anyway. So, what was more important, the jobs or the debt? It's tough to have both. 

Trump pointed that out in his 2016 campaign, the debt. 

Well, the debt is now the highest in American history. The sheer hypocrisy, now the Republicans are using unemployment rate as an answer to mask over a endemic issues in the economy.

The lies are so blatant now and the sad fact is they get away with it. So, I have to blame the press and the people. No consequences to lying to the people.

...the sad and scary fact is the hard core supporters know this and are willing to overlook it for ulterior reasons and those reasons should scare the shit out of people.

Did Britain meddle in a US presidential election?

 

When US President George HW Bush craved "a smoking gun" in 1992 to politically kneecap his White House challenger Bill Clinton, the British government delved into its files for damaging information. So, did the Bush camp solicit foreign interference to help him win an election - the allegation that has seen President Trump impeached?

"A guy like that doesn't deserve to be president," President Bush told his sister about Clinton.

He viewed the young Arkansas governor, who was the same age as Bush's eldest son, as a scoundrel and felt confident he could roll over him.

But the president sorely underestimated a political thaumaturge, so gifted that his ascent to the White House had been foreseen when he was aged just seven by his school teacher.

To Bush's mystification, his saxophone-tootling challenger's popularity in opinion polls was even defying the gravity of revelations about his draft-dodging past.

The Republican, a decorated World War 2 fighter pilot, dictated to his diary: "I'm tired of this guy lying and ducking on the draft and not coming clean."

Bush had another problem - his campaign was as stale as the recession-sapped US economy.

So he turned for inspiration across the Atlantic to his friend, UK Prime Minister John Major.

The British premier's come-from-behind general election win in April 1992 was being touted by American conservatives as a blueprint for the US president.

Bush had a very special relationship with Major, his brother-in-arms from the 1990-91 Gulf War, as has previously been revealed in transcripts of their private conversations obtained by the BBC.

He once spoke of sending him "a love letter" and assured the British PM "obviously we're rooting for you" to beat Labour Party leader Neil Kinnock.

Two UK Tory panjandrums - architects of the PM's surprise victory - flew to Washington eight weeks before the US election and advised the Bush team to focus attacks on Clinton's character.

The president's campaign hired an opposition research specialist to dig for dirt in Britain.

What happened next was either a bureaucratic mishap, or an egregious act of political meddling by the UK in the internal politics of a friendly nation.

At some point in early October 1992, the Home Office inspected its immigration nationality section to see whether Clinton had applied for British citizenship while at Oxford University from 1968-70 in order to escape the Vietnam draft.

Briefing reporters on background, the department said its "comprehensive" check was conducted out of "sheer helpfulness" to the media, even though it usually always rebuffed journalists with the stock answer that it did not discuss individual cases.

Nothing compromising on the Democrat was discovered, though it remains an open question how any such political bombshell, had it been excavated, would have been handled by Whitehall.

That same month, a frustrated Bush would dictate to his diary that "we cannot get this smoking gun on Clinton".

All Major could offer him were well wishes.

The British premier called Bush on Air Force One during a last burst of campaigning two days ahead of November's election.

"I wanted to wish you a great hurrah and all of my best for the home stretch," Major said, according to a transcript of their conversation at the Bush presidential library in Texas.

But he had backed the wrong horse - Clinton trounced Bush.

Returning to the White House a day after he lost, the humiliated one-term president grew emotional, according to biographer Jon Meacham.

Bush dictated to his diary that he was thinking to himself: "How in God's name did this country elect a draft dodger?"

A month later, when the Home Office publicly acknowledged having carried out the file check, the victorious Clinton did not hide his annoyance.

"They should have more pressing business," he said of British officials when asked about the controversy during a morning jog in Little Rock, Arkansas.

That very same day, 6 December 1992, Major wrote a letter of apology to the US president-elect.

According to a copy of the correspondence, declassified only last year by the UK National Archives, the British premier said he was "disturbed by reports which have appeared about enquiries by our Home Office relating back to your time at Oxford".

"I am only sorry," Major added, "that it has been played up now in a mischievous way. I hope the mischief will be short-lived."

The file does not indicate that Clinton responded.

Later that month, Major flew to Washington on an official working visit. He had hoped to mend fences with the president-elect during the trip.

But Clinton declined to meet him - the Washington Post described it as a snub.

With the so-called special relationship on ice, Labour MPs jeered the prime minister in the House of Commons in February 1993 as he denied taking sides in a US election.

Margaret Beckett, the opposition's deputy leader, was among members of Parliament who shook her head sceptically at Major's explanation.

"No I didn't buy it," the MP for Derby South tells the BBC, remembering that day in the chamber 27 years ago.

"I thought at the very least there must have been a nod and wink [between the US and UK].
