Re: fiscal conservative. There are two things that made this cartoon seem true. First, congress has more to do with spending than the president and Clinton was the only one of those guys who had a republican congress during a significant part of his term. Second, Clinton benefited greatly from the so called 'peace dividend', the budget savings generated by the downsizing of the military and base closings associated with the end of the cold war.
It is a clever cartoon but, in my opinion, misleading.
