A broad question indeed. Clinton was definately the better politician. There are a million issues to compare the two but here are a couple.They were different presidents at different times in our history. Clinton governed when the economy was on the upswing and Bush governed when the economy was in recession. I give that one to Bush for cutting taxes and stimulating the economy.
Unemployment was at record lows during the Clinton administration and while they initially went up during the Bush presidency they are well below 5% today. I call that one a tie.
There was no war on terror during the Clinton administration (at least from our side) and while Bush has made some mistakes in handling post 911 foreign affairs, I cant help but think he was better than Clinton who wanted to handle terror issues as a crime instead of using military action.
There was no war on terrorism during the Clinton administration...LOL...Good Lord Dude ya have your proverbial head up your arse or what...I worked anti-terrorism dating back to the seventees...and what about all the 'cruise missels' Billy sent to abandon targets during his reign? NOT A VERY IMPRESSIVE ARGUMENT HERE!(being sarcastic as usual...lol)
i thought that clinton cut taxes as well? was i wrong?Bush is by far a better president.
Rather than dazzle them with bull shit, as Clinton did, Bush actually DID SOMETHING.
Through his tax cuts he put money back in the hands of people that knew what to do with it, THE PEOPLE.
Bush is a "war time president" Clinton never was, and couldn't be. He was COMPLETLY lost.
Bush has guided our "ship" through some terrible waters, Clinton would have stacked it up on the sand bar.
What most people, that follow politics can't seem to get straight about our current President is, HE SAYS WHAT HE MEANS, AND HE DOES WHAT HE SAYS. How fucking refreshing is THAT?
