    Actually yes. He proposed and passed a 6% surcharge on taxes in 1967 to finance the costs of the Vietnam war in conjunction with implementing significant spending cuts. As a direct result, his last budget, for fiscal year 1968/69, had revenues in excess of expenditures. Clinton was the first President after LBJ to do this again. During LBJ's presidency, the national debt also shrank as a percentage of GDP.

    As I recall, we are not at war, we are at an Overseas Contingency Operation, at least the what our dear leader stated early in his administration.

    I guess the definition of war depends if you are spending Christmas in Hawaii or behind sandbags in the middle east. Holding a golf club or wearing a combat helmet.
