Just a link to why he sucked as a president.
Reasosn Why Bill Clinton was a bad president.
1.) He could have had Osama bin Laden, but he turned the offer to have him in custody down.
2.) He cheated on his wife.
3.) He was a lying bastard.
4.) He wanted to cut money toward the army. If it was up to him the whole army would be a rowboat and 10 boyscouts.
Can any one else give another reasons?
1.) Clinton let the ball drop when it came Al Queda, that point can not be argued.
2.) Thomas Jefferson, FDR, Eisenhower, and JFK are other presidents that cheated on their wives. I don't think anyone would call them bad presidents.
Adultery, while I don't condon, has no effect on a man's capacity to govern well. This has been proven many times throughout history.
3.) Once again, this has no bearing on whether he was a good president or not. Every man, woman, and child on this planet has lied before. Bush
blatantly lied, so let's not split hairs on this one.
4.) I support a strong military. But do we really need a defense budget larger than the rest of the world combined? And even with the massive amount
of money ($600 billion or so) we spend now on the military our soldiers don't receive the proper equipment many times. You can thank Don Rumsfeld for
increasing military spending while cutting quality.
The truth is that Clinton wasn't a great president, but wasn't bad either. As sad as this is, he has probably been the best president of my brief
