Ahh.. Hudson.. You hit the most touchy topic of our modern times for evaluating recent leadership. .....and I'm shocked Huffpo comes out against a man
they've been unable to sign enough praise for in past years. Hillary must be moving against Obama or they see the possibility of it. Time for some
pre-emptive strikes across the Clinton 'brand' as a whole and the two of them in particular. Ugh...... Bad form for any journalism and they're usually
better than this with their OWN side, at least.
Clinton WAS one of the best President's we've had in living memory for economics. Now, I DID NOT BELIEVE THAT myself until I built the President's
thread linked in my signature. I STILL think Bill Clinton has all the ethics of a rattlesnake and the moral compass of a Hyena in feeding frenzy.
Having said that? Bill Clinton...as a President and not as a man.....DID bring the United States into SURPLUS on annual budget totals. He didn't do it
for one year ..as a fluke...but a full 4 years under his leadership enjoyed green numbers for the first time in memory and probably the last time in
history.....as we're looking at 1-2 TRILLION DOLLAR budget holes here on out while we're told there IS NO OTHER WAY.
Well... Bill Clinton found another way. Bill Clinton was also quoted months ago saying that letting the bush Tax Cuts expire under CURRENT economic
conditions was insane. Obviously, he knows a thing or two about what works and what doesn't. Obama should have listened to those who know better. Next
year will show why.
Clinton set the stage for some of the housing collapse...Yes. However, that wasn't a Presidential thing NEARLY as much as the direct doing of TWO
INDIVIDUAL MEN. Both of whom took the coward exit and ran for the doors the first moment their yellow striped backs could get them there. Christopher
Dodd and Barney Frank.
Let''s never forget that well after Clinton was a former President and within a year of the collapse, Franks was still saying anyone questioning the
system was fear mongering and there was no harm in waiting to see how thigns turned out. Yea......There was a world of harm as it turned out,
