Hey All,

Time's version, the as-prepared script, doesn't have everything Nancy said.

(16:16 video clip):


=== begin cut ===
"When President Bush took office, he inherited President Clinton's 
surpluses  four years in a row, budget surpluses, on a trajectory of 
$5.6 trillion in surplus. And with his reckless economic policies within 
two years, he had turned that around ... and now eight years later the 
foundation of that fiscal irresponsibility, combined with an 
anything-goes economic policy, has taken us to where we are today. They 
claim to be free-market advocates when it's really an anything-goes 
mentality, no regulation, no supervision, no discipline. ..."

"... Democrats believe in a free market ... but in this case, in its 
unbridled form as encouraged, supported by the Republicans  some in the 
Republican Party, not all  it has created not jobs, not capital, it has 
created chaos."
=== end cut ===

Barney's point stands, IMO.
