Do you think Barack Obama is an even better president than Bill Clinton?

Keep in mind that Clinton did not give gay people free health care.

    Hard to say, especially since Obama has 3.5 years to go. Clinton had a booming economy and handled it correctly (by staying out of the way), but he was slow to stop genocide in Bosnia and Rwanda. He also was too ambitious his first two years. And then there are his personal "domestic affairs initiatives". Obama might not be as good, but he's made fewer unforced errors.

    @StephenG: Do you remember Newt and his acolytes? The ones who impeached Clinton?

    Mr Clinton knew how to work with Congress to still get things done. Mr Obama refuses. Therefore nothing gets done.

    Mr. Clinton could even work with a GOP majority in both houses. Mr. Obama gets frustrated if the GOP has one house.

    You might conclude Mr. Obama and the dems are weaker these days than in the 1990's. Because they don't seem to function well without total control. Where as Mr. Clinton did pretty well with only 1/3 of the government in his hands.

    Clinton at least had dignity, Obama on the otherhand makes a lame example for an authority figure. I actually think if Clinton hadn't got personal he would have been a decent president.

    1. I think he's a much better Prez than Bill Clinton -- at least so far. Not because of gay health care, although I'm in favor of gay people having affordable health care - just like everybody else.

    But Obama's basically decent record could change. That is, unless people who support Obama keep a close eye on him -- to make sure he doesn't follow Clinton in screwing the average American, while sucking up shamelessly to Wall Street.

    HOW SO?

    1. Bill C had remarkable success in presiding over a growing economy -- in the short term.

    But he did this (a) by cooperating with Wall Street and the GOP to enact two "free trade" agreements -- NAFTA and the WTO -- that helped to devastate US industrial jobs by making it easier for corporations to "outsource" factory work to Mexico and even to China.

    That was horrible for the US economy in the long run.

    (b) Clinton also cooperated with the brain-dead Republicans -- again -- in deregulating Wall Street. He did this in many ways, but most notably by supporting Sen. Phil Gramm's efforts to repeal the 1933 Glass Steagall Act, which for 65 years had kept regular deposit banks from engaging in the dangerously speculative business of "investment" banking.

    3. Unfortunately, less than 10 years after Clinton endorsed a basically Republican-led effort to deregulate the banking sector - - with Clinton's help, the Glass Steagall Act actually was repealed -- the US in 2007 and 2008 suffered from a massive financial industry collapse.

    What caused the collapse? Much of it was generated by reckless financial speculation by investment bankers -- by the same guys that the GOP and Clinton had helped to free from "excessive" regulation.

    4. NAFTA, meanwhile, has helped facilitate the ongoing loss of US industrial jobs -- millions of them -- since the 1990s. And it hasn't done anything to curb Mexican immigration to the US -- legal or otherwise.

    In fact, by helping large US agribusiness interests invade Mexican food markets and ruin 3 million small Mexican farmers economically, NAFTA has INCREASED the immigration of poor displaced Mexican peasants to the US.

    5. In other words Clinton, to stay popular and seem "effective," sold out the interests of his liberal and middle-class base by helping the Congressional Republicans & big corporations tilt the US government and the US economy further towards helping the "1 percent" at the expense of everybody else.

    So I wouldn't trust Bill C any farther than I could throw him, although I contributed hundreds of dollars to his 1992 campaign.

    6. So far, Obama hasn't done anything comparable to betray the American worker.

    But unfortunately, Obama IS talking about passage this year of a "Trans Pacific Partnership" (TPP) agreement that would be NAFTA on steroids -- an invitation to foreign based multinationals to loot the US market at will.

    7. Just like Clinton before him, Obama evidently hopes to win over some of his business critics through "free trade" initiatives. And he's excusing this ploy by claiming it would create American jobs -- which is BS.

    If Obama supporters have ANY hopes of seeing Obama deliver "change we can believe in," we'll ALL bombard the White House & Congress with emails, snail mail & phone calls, demanding that the TPP be stopped.

    No, Even Clinton was better than Obama.

    And that's really saying something...

  • 7 years ago

    Neither did Obama.

    I miss Jimmy Carter.

    At least Jimmy Carter had character, respected America and actually cared about the American people.

  • 7 years ago

    Hell no. As a Conservative, I'd even take Clinton anytime over Obama.

  • None of the above.
