Yeah, let's just ignore that little crash in '99 and 2000

What crash would that be? Unemployment was under 5% in 1999 and kept falling until 2001 (graph). Yes, it was bad if you were in the tech sector. More of a market correction than a crash. <Cue Crocodile Dundee> Now, 2008, THAT was a crash!

So, who benefited from that "boom"? The very same people that are benefiting from this one, and it ain't us.

Indeed, which is why I'm voting Sanders.

Here's an amusing thought: Trump has threatened to run as a third party candidate if the Republicans are mean to him, Bloomberg said if Trump, Sanders, or Cruz were nominated he could jump in. So it could be a four way race; Trump, Sanders, Bloomberg, and Cruz. I don't think that's ever happened before.

Bush and Christie hitting one-time Senator Rubio out on lack of experience when Bush's Texas governor brother took the white house in peacetime with a balanced budget and in a boom and left with two wars, the worst economy since the Great Depression, and history's largest deficit. Then a one term Illinois Senator took that and is leaving office with low unemployment, a lower deficit, and a good economy. They're nuts.

Not that Rubio is any more sane.
