Was Bill Clinton a good President?
hapbgme, he WAS impeached, just not charged. The Senate let him go on a party line vote after he clearly and blatantly perjured himself by lying under oath to the American people.
If the the absolute truth came out on how many of the past residents had extra-marital affairs while in office - I think the results would be astounding. Clinton just happened to get caught. I don't fault him for it.
Ladmo@ he was not impeached although they talked about it, it never happened. He did become president at the right time, Reagan, internet/w the .Coms, cell phones etc. But it was the Free Market that this country rode high on! What our current president is against
I wonder what Wanita Broderick would say about this question?
Dude got a hummer in the Oval Orifice! Hell yeah!
My son had to explain to our granddaughter how a man without honor could be a leader.
Depends on what the definition of 'was', was/is. He was impeached for lying to Congress, how can anyone think he was a good president? Jeesh people, THINK!
Do cigars count as intercourse? I mean after all, this is the President that taught kids bjs isn't really "sex".
I did not have sexual intercourse with that woman!
It's all about timing for Clinton. He had a lot of things going on in the business, FREE MARKET world that enabled him to look good. He's a great speaker and really good at manipulating numbers, as we saw at the DNC.
Obama will be remembered favorably like Clinton, 16 years from now
He was good at politics. I wouldn't say that he was a good President.
the numbers dont lie, so i said yes (as a repub). but, he was in at the best time.
Like many others, I think he did a good job but was a total sleaze. I like him better now than I did then
Right time. He did an okay job but he was an adultering sleaze ball which is completely unacceptable and made me really look at him negatively.
Mixed feelings about this man. I'm reg independent and while I thought Clinton was 'eh' I do think he's a better speaker today. Clinton got lucky to an extent. If Internet and .coms blew up today like they did when he was Potus, everyone would loovve Obama. Clinton was in the right place at the
A bit of a sleaze bag though. He recently ( at the DNC) came on to Sandra Fluke and got shot down. I guess she eels her paid obligations to the Democrats don't go quite that far. She may learn otherwise.
Well, he was better than Obama.....not saying much.
Lol, Republicans are haters..
Compared to what we have today, he is supremely better. He just had some ethics issues.
Yeah it was real easy riding Reagan's coattails. No wonder he had time to chase fat sluts around the Oval Office with cigars.
I think yes, but he was in during a booming economy due to the Internet. So hard to really say. Many people would have had similar success.
Verit I was impressed with your last post until you said BRack Obama, please explain that to me because BO has done nothing but separate this country by class and race. So explain your post to me Vertias. Just a note is makes a difference when you write your ideas without being mean.
only because he could nor do anything because he was too busy trying to cover up his bj's in the white house :-)
Hey! Whoa whoa whoa Emsies. H.W. was a very, very good president! HW > W
Herbert Walker is exactly the kind of president that is good for America.
…We pull each other up. We draw strength from our victories, and we learn from our mistakes, but we keep our eyes fixed on that distant horizon, knowing that Providence is with us, and that we are surely blessed to be citizens of the greatest nation on Earth."
"America, I never said this journey would be easy, and I won’t promise that now. Yes, our path is harder – but it leads to a better place. Yes our road is longer – but we travel it together. We don’t turn back. We leave no one behind…
Yes, and we need him!
It takes a Clinton to fix a Bush.
Hahahaha, sure they do....
FYI obamas financial team mirrors Clinton's.
My dad, a Republican, loved Clinton as president.
Lousy person but a good president. Now we have a good person who is a lousy president.
Clinton made things fun. I don't know if that makes him a good prez, heh.
We *almost* had bush/Clinton/bush/Clinton! Then Jeb bush, then Chelsea....

9. Reagan 10. Jackson
Sweetness34: i couldn't agree more the first two years were hell! Then the people elected people that would stop the unfettered nonsense! I think it was Obama that said Elections have consequences! The people spoke huh?
He was impeached!!!!! But he's still better than the dipshit we have now...
If Clinton's congress gets the praise for the good done during his terms the this congress should be blamed for our woes now, not Obama
How can those under 21 be so sue in this?
Yep Newts congress made Clinton look like a freakin hero not to mention the .com bubble going strong.
Compared to who? Obama?...absolutely!
No one can deny he did wonders for the country financially.
In my opinion he's the best
Don't get it REALLY don't get ....didn't understand it then or now. He's a proven bold faced fraud, a habitual liar, and while a master at spin.....obviously 12 of shit that he caused, has made us forget what a schmuck he was
Well unfortunately we are in the 21st century. Thats our experience, what WE have lived through. So yeah you can go back to the founders if you like but since we are actually living and dealing with their policies then thats our reality.
People forget the greatness of people like Washington, Jefferson, etc.
They were great men. Men who were revered. Now it's just political BS. Obama sucks. Reagan rocks. No mention of how similar their policy views.
@nvr. Not at all. I guarantee you anyone who makes a statement as ignorant as that can't even make more than 15 presidents. Ever heard of Pierce? McKinkey? Old Chester? Coolidge? They truly sucked. The first three didn't even get re-nominated by their party for reelection.
I forgot you try to use the elite, uppity, smarter then everyone else crap. It fits your simple mind and only proves you provide nothing intelligent to any conversation on here. Bring some facts or stay home little man!
@veritas... I gave up on that argument a long time ago. Reagan's fans seem to have amnesia.
