    Barrack Obama is no Bill Clinton.
    Clinton had the ability to see into the future and work with people for the good of the USA.
    He never had a bad word about this country and put his country before Party,this is what makes for a great president.
    Obama is on some kind of get even with the Republicans and Rich businesses --revenge or something like that.
    Clinton had to work with a republican house and senate and did , he knew how to negotiate not demand.
    Obama is on his way out and thank God.
    Clinton knew its about the economy fix that and all other programs will fall into place as the parties will have enough money for all there special pet projects.

    Wow, this is some kind of revisionist history, or what?

    I seem to remember folks on the right who thought Clinton was the anti-Christ. (And heck, I was one of them at the time.)

    The problem with Clinton is that he had a Republican Congress that was willing to negotiate. Obama has a GOP Congress that isn't even willing to go along with ideas they used to support. They dig in and then go to court when they lose.

    And frankly, Clinton was always a slippery character, who would make an agreement with you and denounce it five minutes later. So in a way, Obama is paying for his sins.

    I didn't care for Bill but on his worst day he was a better POTUS than Barry Boy.

    It is what it is.

    Well, that's an opinion.

    Frankly, it is easy to be a president in the middle of an economic boom when you are a peace.

    Clinton inherited a country at peace at the start of an economic upswing.

    Obama inherited a country that was an economic wreck entangled in wars.

    You're right...

    Clinton inherited a country at peace and economic upswing (thank you Bush Sr).

    Obama inherited a country that was a mess because of a terrorist attack, 2 wars that the majority of dems agreed need to happen, Katrina, and a democratic congress since 2007 that never passed a budget and only wanted to SPEND. Obama wanted this...he promised many things to get it...and has only made it worse.

    You know............I really want to hang around here and get to know all of you nutters well enough to enrich my joy and laughter when President Obama wins his second term. But, fuckin' A! Do you dummies have to be so damned repetitive? Can you at least try to be creative in your lame condemnation of the man?

    The boredom may kill me before election day.

    I mostly agree. Obama certainly has had a more difficult set of circumstances than Clinton. Though I'm still inclined to see Clinton as the better president. I give Obama credit for doing a decent job overall under difficult conditions, but I also hold him accountable for some notable shortcomings. His failure to be in charge in the early part of his Presidency and allowing Nancy Pelosi to push him around, his re-nigging on explicit campaign promises like closing Gitmo, etc.

    Clinton at least knew how to go to the middle to keep the country going. Unlike Obama he will never meet anyone in the middle. It is his way or the highway!
