One of the smoothest most articulate presidents we've ever had although on the other hand, his work ethic and credability were down there with the worst we've ever had.

Work ethic? We're complaining about Bill Clinton's work ethic??? When GWB practically LIVES in Crawford???

I'll give you a dollar if you go and ask this question.....

"So, had a good cigar lately?"

The title of this posting alone knocks the breath out of me.

George Bush in Crawford gets more work done than Clinton did in the Oval Office.

Clinton was more the "Teflon Don" than a statesman. He left a trail of dead bodies and ruined careers in his wake, while never getting his own hands dirty.

Clinton f**ked an intern, Bush f**ked a war. Nuff said.

Those that want to drag this off topic in regards to Bush need to look at the original post which was directed at Clinton.

It might be a good seminar on how to be a "pimp daddy". I mean to learn from the master how to pick up a little trim....come on!!??? 300 is cheap for a taste of that kind of experience.

What did Clinton ever accomplish? Someone please tell me. And don't even talk about the economy or the unemployment rate. I have a degree in economics and there are very few factors that can effect the economy in the short term. Most are very very long term. Someone please tell me...

A limited outline of Clinton's presidency:
1. Clinton signed the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993, which required large employers to allow their employees to take unpaid leave because of pregnancy or serious medical condition.
2. Clinton opposed his own party and supported the Republican’s North American Free Trade Agreement for ratification by the U.S. Senate
3. He also expanded the Earned Income Tax Credit, which benefits working class families with dependent children.
4. Clinton signed the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993, which passed Congress without a single Republican vote. It raised taxes on the wealthiest 1.2% of taxpayers, while cutting taxes on 15 million low-income families and making tax cuts available to 90 percent of small businesses. Additionally, it mandated that the budget be balanced over a number of years, and the implementation of spending restraints.
5. Clinton organized a successful NATO response to the ethnic wars in the former Yugoslavia.
6. Clinton supported welfare reform by requiring those on welfare to get an education or a job within a specified time.
7. Clinton remained popular with the public throughout his two terms as President, ending his presidential career with a 65% approval rating, the highest end-of-term approval rating of any President since Eisenhower.
8. In addition to his political skills, Clinton also oversaw a boom of the US economy. Under Clinton, the United States had a projected federal budget surplus for the first time since 1969.
9. After the World Trade Center was attacked by terrorists, the perpetrators were actually caught, tried, convicted and incarcerated.

Moving From Record Deficits to Record Surplus. In 1992, the Federal budget deficit was $290 billion - the largest dollar deficit in American history. In January 1993, the Congressional Budget Office projected that the deficit would grow to $455 billion by 2000. The Office of Management and Budget is now projecting a surplus of at least $230 billion for 2000 - the third consecutive surplus and the largest surplus ever, even after adjusting for inflation. Compared with original projections, that is over $685 billion less in government drain on the economy and over $685 billion more potentially available for private investment in this one year alone. The 2000 surplus is projected to be 2.4 percent of GDP -- the largest surplus as a share of GDP since 1948. This is the first time we have had three surpluses in a row in more than a half century, and it is the second consecutive surplus excluding Social Security. [Office of Management! and Budget; National Economic Council, 9/27/00]

Helping Parents Balance Work and Family. The Family and Medical Leave Act allows workers to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave to care for seriously ill family members, new born or adoptive children, or their own serious health problems without fear of losing their jobs. Nearly 91 million workers (71% of the labor force) are covered by the Family and Medical Leave Act and millions of workers have benefited from FMLA since its enactment. President Clinton has proposed expanding FMLA to allow workers to take up to 24 unpaid hours off each year for school and early childhood education activities, routine family medical care, and caring for an elderly relative. [Five Years of Success: Report on FMLA, Department of Labor, 8/98 (updated number provided 7/99)]

Lowest Federal Spending as a Share of the Economy Since 1966. The spending restraint under President Clinton has brought government spending down from 22.2 percent of GDP in 1992 to a projected 18.5 percent of GDP in 2000 - the lowest since 1966. At the same time, President Clinton has increased investments in education, technology and other areas that are vital to growth. [National Economic Council, 6/26/00]

He did some good things as President, but sadly most will only remember that he had sex, or did not have sex, or did something with a fat intern!

Anon 9:15 probably thinks that george w is hte greatest president ever. He doesn't realize that under the Clinton Administration we had the biggest surplus the U.S. has ever had and under Bush lite we've accumulated the biggest deficit. Thanks to his war on terror that will probably be the start of WW3. There are always going to be countries that don't like us but we don't need to inflame them even more. We are creating more terrorists with the policies of this administration and all Clinton did was get a BJ. Other than that, he was one of the greatest presidents we've ever seen.

Sorry to disappoint you, but I am not a Bush devotee. He has screwed up royally and has proven to be a real disappointment for this country.

But I still wouldn't pay 3 cents to see this joker, Clinton.

Not our greatest president by a long shot.

There's no question that Clinton marred his image for all time with the Lewinski (and others) affairs. However, those who would overlook all of the truly effective measures he helped implement are the simple, closed minded right wing bigots (oopse, is that name-calling?).

As several above posts indicate, the Clinton years were quite productive. Who knows what he might have got done if he could keep his pants zipped.

If I were president I would have a hard time refraining from using my power to get blow-jobs, however I hope I would have just a little better taste than Wild Bill!

There are at least two faces of presidents on a mountain in the Dakotas who got more than Clinton did in the oval office. Only thing is, news didn't travel as fast in those days. Look at the facts, and look at the accomplishments. Just because someone shows his human side, while not committing a crime I might add, he
shouldn't be branded as a bad president.

???? Does Bill Clinton have a blog? and is he gay? I know you are not talking about this blog or Barry. Because I can tell you HE IS NOT GAY! And if you think blogging is gay - and you aren't then don't get on here and trash Barry - he's a good guy and apparently you aren't or you wouldn't be such a jerk.

Clinton's greatness is being significantly enhanced by the current comparison with G W Bush. Bill's getting greater and greater.

Hey all you blow hard liberals. Remember before the election when you said that the gas prices would go back up to 3 or 4 dollars a gallon after the election because Bush controlled oil future prices? The new Bounty paper towels work great for getting egg off of your face. I just saw where the price of a barrel of oil is now under 50 dollars.

Anonymous said...

Price of oil is dropping because the Democrats are zeroing in on energy profiteers. BTW, the economy has been doing pretty well since the Democrats won the November elections. Bush is trying to cover his a** by firing a bunch of US Attorneys who were looking into his and other Republican corrupt practices. We'll have to wait to see if he gets away with it.

Anon 11:35 AM: Let's take a look at a few of those.

#4 OBRA 1993: Raised the gasoline tax by 4.3 cents; repealed the cap on Medicare taxes; raised the taxable portion on Social Security benefits. A large part of the budget surplus was at the expense of defense spending.

#6: Welfare Reform: Clinton was forced into this by the Republican Congress. In fact, welfare reform was part of the Republican "Contract with America."

#7 Popularity: Jerry Springer and Howard Stern are popular. Americans bought pet rocks. Popularity means little outside of Hollywood and junior high. Clinton rode an economy which he had no part in creating, and a fawning media made him popular.

#8: Budget surplus: The biggest cuts in govenrment spending were in defense spending. These cuts, along with a 16-fold increase in "non-warfighting" missions left the military depleted. We see what the result of that philosophy was. Only at the end of his presidency did Clinton offer a substantial increase in defense spending -- which his successor would have to answer for.

#9: WTC 1993: Clinton ignored the al-Qaida ties, the extent of the threat, and left America woefully ill-defended against further attacks (thus 9/11/01.) Clinton's application of the justice system to fight terrorism prevented him from taking bin Laden when Sudan offered him up. We live with the results of Clinton's policy.

Overall, regarding the most important topic we live with today -- Islamic terrorism -- Clinton aided and abetted the enemy, rather than defend America.

In his most fundamental responsibility, Clinton failed.

3;37, The economy has been doing great for 4 years. What did the democrats have to do with that? Please explain how "zeroing in" on oil profiteers is making the price go down. If you are going to tax windfall profits, all the oil companies have to do is raise the price so that the consumer pays the price hike and not the company. So your junk theory holds no water.

Wordkyle, Interesting selective reference to facts. How is the booming economy of the 90's not to Clinton's credit but the reduction in defense spending is his fault? Are you aware it is the Congress that allocates the funding? For 6 of Clinton's 8 years he had a Republican Congress - blame them for cutting the defense budget. And recall that Clinton warned the incoming Bush administration about the bin Laden threat but they ignored Clinton’s plan to go after him in Afghanistan. Your other complaints are that Clinton cooperated with his Republican Congress. That's what statesmen do to get work done. We'll see how well Bush deals with the new Democrat congress.

If Clinton thought Bin Laden was a threat, why did he refuse to take custody of him 3 times when Sudan tried to hand him over?

Has everyone forgot that he is responsible for the military secrets that were sold to China. Is it not scary enought that irresponsible country's have nuclear weapons but thanks to b.c. China received the technology to guide them.

Instead of paying 300 dollars to hear the 2nd worst president ever hear how he was the best president ever, why don't you socialists donate that money to the homeless?

Anon 4:07 PM: The booming economy that Clinton enjoyed would have happened if Perot or George HW Bush had won in 1992. The 90s saw the end of the Cold War, deregulation, the advent of the Internet and World Wide Web, mapping of the human genome -- all of which added to the exuberance that pumped up the stock market. The dot-com bubble pushed it to irrational levels. Absolutely none of this was Clinton's doing. The fiscal restraint imposed on him by the Republican Congress added to the prosperity.

As for defense spending, Clinton and his Democrat Congress slashed it drastically from 1993-1995. Beginning in 1996, Clinton still asked for drastic defense cuts each year, but the Republican Congress returned it higher. They didn't have the political power to actually increase it to appropriate levels -- Clinton had the veto and they didn't have the votes to override. So the actual defense budget declined until the end of Clinton's term, when he pushed for increased defense spending that his successor would have to deal with.

To repeat: Clinton was the beneficiary -- not the cause -- of the 90s economy. He, along with the Democrat Congress in the early 90s, cut the funding for the military. Whoever followed him was going to have to deal with the aftermath.
