Skip to comments.The Election of 1992: Recession and the Perot Factor

he election of George H.W. Bush in 1988 guaranteed some stability in dealing with major foreign policy issues on the horizon. The Reagan administrations attempts to drown the communist world with big ideas and a massive defense spending increase set the table for the fall of Soviet Russia in the early 1990s. The Bush administration oversaw the defeat of communism and ushered the new Russian state, led by Mikhael Gorbachev, into a capitalist era. This was the major global change that occurred at this point but Bush and his advisors were more integral to other conflicts throughout the world.
What really did that idiot Perot accomplish? He’s less than a footnote in history. A useful rube for the democrats.
Yes, a much different world.
The USA should symbolize stability, not chaos....
It’s funny how the MSM doesn’t realize we’re spending ourselves into mediocrity...
Sorry all I fell for Perot and voted for him as many here had too
The first WTC bombing happened 37 days after Clinton was sworn into office. I doubt this particular terror attack would have been thwarted if Bush had gotten a second term. Unless Clinton got some top secret info between Jan. 20, 1993 and Feb. 26, 1993, it’s not likely.
The only question is would is administration have responded to the attack differently?
FEW LATE 20TH CENTURY PRESIDENCIES HAVE BEEN 2 FULL TERMS.
35 John F. Kennedy 1961-1963 Democrat NO 2ND TERM
36 Lyndon B. Johnson 1963-1969 Democrat NO 2ND ELECTED TERM
37 Richard M. Nixon 1969-1974 Republican NO FULL 2ND TERM
38 Gerald R. Ford 1974-1977 Republican NO 2ND ELECTED TERM
39 Jimmy Carter 1977-1981 Democrat NO 2ND ELECTED TERM
40 Ronald Reagan 1981-1989 Republican
41 George Bush 1989-1993 Republican NO SECOND ELECTED TERM
42 Bill Clinton 1993-2001 Democrat
43 George W. Bush 2001-2009 Republican
44 Barack H. Obama 2009 (?)
I think the Baraqqis will use Sorosbucks to fund another 3rd party candidate in 012 attempting to pull off a Clintonian plurality win.
I don’t see Baraq winning any 2-way matchup.
Well I lernt my lesson aint gonna fall for it
Perot’s big ears heard the job sucking sound which has escaped every President. Maybe he wasn’t crazy after all.
Once defeated in 92, we'd never have heard of PIAPS or the Sink Emperor again.
