    This video is 17 years old. He is a man with experience. That's what we need. And don't give me some foreign policy clap trap. He's got as much knowledge as Obama did when he was elected. With one difference..... He knows who our enemies are and he's not afraid to say it.

    And the economy during the Clinton administration was what?

    Good or bad?

    It was good indeed. Having said that I'm not so sure it would have remained that way had Hillarycare passed.

    It seems to me at least, Sallowcrates, that it was good.

    But, the seeds for the future crisis were planted by the GOP Congress and SecTreas Robert Rubin with the repeal of Glass-Steagal in 1999.

    Clinton was response for the mortgage meltdown, the outshoring movement to Mexico and China, the student loan crisis and the credit crisis in general.

    OK the Newt run congress is also to blame (as was Bush for not reversing the damaging Acts Newt and Clinton passed)!

    Not to mention the renewing of the Carter Error Community Reivestment Act and Clinton granting Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac the power to create a secondary mortgage market!

    :lol:

    Well not exactly..but thanks for playing.

    Glass Steagall had something to do with it..but after the Enron meltdown, Bush should have reinstated it.

    Your right. Glass-Steagall should have been reinstated.

    It never should have been canned.
