I believe that history has and will continue to be kind to Slick Willy.

I hate that arrogant bastard and his entitled bitch of a wife.

Oh and his daughter sucks too...entitled little bitch.

:-)

Any questions?

Clinton (both he and she) are closer to you politically than Reagan, though.

Name one policy of the current President that Willie has disagreed with?

The only reason Slick Willie came to his senses in his 2nd term was the Republican House...unlike this president he did reach out to congress and was able to compromise
(welfare reform was one)

Please,do not give em credit for the tech boom in the 90's
he just happened to be steering the ship at the right time.

Reagan vs Clinton

no contest

I'll start: Reagan honored the Oval Office and wasn't impeached for lying under oath.

Clinton takes and gets credit (when he shouldnt) for actions of the Newt Gingrich led Congress - welfare reform, etc. The ONLY reason Clinton went along with those things was to get re-elected. The good economy during the mid-late 1990's was due to the private sector and a reigned in Clinton/Dem government.

Was wagging the dog.

And it worked. One day over 220 marines are slaughtered. A couple of days later we invade Grenada!

If only Obama was so smart. He should have invaded Monaco a few days after Benghazi.

It's one of the best farewell addresses ever and I wish I was born a few years earlier to understand and appreciate his Presidency but one really important farewell speech is Eisenhower's.

We have ignored Eisenhower's warnings about the military industrial complex in the worst way possible and look where it got us into today. Our military is basically the world's police department. That shite is not sustainable at all and it's what Eisenhower detested and feared.




Could you imagine a speech of such substance and content being given today? He was speaking to a different audience back then.

I can't imagine what the talking heads would be saying if he were to give that speech today. They would probably be utterly speechless.

One of the very few things I think Reagan was wrong about, was his lack of immediate retribution against those who attacked the Marines in Beirut.

Aside from that and one or two smaller issues, Reagan was a great President. A man who led this country to be better than it had been, and believed it could be before he took over.

This country, today, needs a man who has his moral views, convictions and commitment to freedoms. His ability to connect to the American public and his humble attitude towards the American public is sorely missed.

douchebags like you don't get it.

I don't vote by party.

I vote for who I think will do a better job as president.

McCain lost his shot when he decided to agree to make that princess his vice president.

Romney...just no...another arrogant douchebag.

I was happy to see Hillary get her entitled lying arse kicked in the democratic primaries...hope she runs again so I can once again enjoy her defeat.

Obama isn't the greatest president ever...but he is and was better then the choices the GOP threw up.

So you voted for Obama because he wasn't an "arrogant douchebag"? How bout any of his political views? or executive experience?

Good God, low information voting at its finest.

We are living in the age of idiocracy...
