If he was tried for his real crimes ... national security arena ... rather than sex and perjury, it would be a much different story. Another lesson in the GOP caving to the Dems.
I am not torn. President Carter was the worst President in History!!!!!! I will stand by that til my dying day. There was NOTHING good at all during his Presidency!!! President Clinton at least had some highlights (I know you won’t agree, but I stand by Carter being the worst!!!!).
In retrospect and having watched Carter lowering himself further and further in a desperate attempt to be relevant, I can clearly see that he has been one mean incompetent little chit right from the start.
Clinton wasn’t close.
Jimmuh was the worst foreign policy President of modern times, LBJ the worst domestic policy President. It’s a toss up which was worse, overall.
I still put Clinton ahead as worst President.
Giving away missle secrets significantly contributes to a future problem that is bigger than Islamic fundamentalism.
Clinton did nothing...NOTHING...to stop Al Qaeada or Bin Laden. His apathy was a significant contributor to 9/11.
He allowed the UN “Food-for-Oil” fiasco to continue without restriction.
I also suspect that the FBI files issue influences a lot of the unusual political decisions we see today (like, Senator Kyl supporting amnesty?!).
Don’t dilute the seriousness of perjury and obstruction of justice - these were serious crimes. People in the Bush administration are being forced to resign for far far less serious infractions of judgement.
His presidency may very well give us Hillary as President; there is no way that she would win if she wasn’t a Clinton.
He had 8 years of prosperity that was handed to him by prior Republican management of the economy...and did nothing with it. His only significant accomplishment (welfare reform) was a Republican initiative that he rejected twice before being faced with a veto override.
And yes, the sex thing was an embarassment.
