Clinton, he has the smallest list of mistakes/errors on his names and the most good ones so i will go with him. However you can not compare presidents 100% because they all lead their country in different times under different circumstances.

Clinton, by far, people think of him and they think of the scandal, yet he was hands down one of the best we ever got....

I feel sorry for him, because of how the republicans slandered him....

the worst would be bush junior

i would rate senior as ok

Clinton is an idiot, and was so during his presidency.

1. Somalia, I wish the families of the Rangers, Pararescuers, and Delta Force could have 5 minutes alone with Clinton in a room. We had no business in Somalia. He has the blood of our soldiers on his hands for a totally worthless purpose. Don't start a flame war about Iraq for the #th time. 2. His scandal with Lewinsky. 3. He was impeached by the House of Representatives 4. Could have saved thousands of lives by taking Osama Bin Laden when offered. 5. He failed to do anything about Saddam Hussein. 6. Even though you all say he helped take peace to the Middle East, as far as I know they've been fighting for half a dozen decades (Israel and Palestine; the time in more recent terms, they've been enemies for much longer).

I have to get offline, otherwise I'd continue typing.

sovereign002Well if you ask me i think Bush junior really f*cked it up but thats just my oppinion. Clinton may have had an affair and stuff but atleast he helped his fellow americans instead of making war against every country he could find. And dont you think it is strange that when Bush senior was president, Irak makes war against koeweit (ok thats Saddam's fault), when clinton is president everything is calm and suddenly when Bush junior is president, Irak starts making trouble again. Dont get me wrong its great that he attacked Afganistan and Irak, Saddam was a very bad president but now that those wars are over he can better start focussing on other things than war, like for instance...better protection against hurricanes, signing the Kyoto pact, ... What do you guys think??

at least bush jr diddnt go around getting his dick sucked by other wemon and raping girls, at least he diddnt LIE to the whole country and cheat on his wife, at least he can RAISE his fucking kids where they go and get freaking drunk at bar like chelsy clinton did. people have opinions, i respect that, but bush jr is a much better president. and im not saying that cause im a republican, im saying that because clinton pardoned a bunch of criminals, and diddnt even care about terrorism and stoping it. he was too busy traveling the world have a fucking feild day. his 8 year vacation cost the conuntrys reputation and hes a peice of shit. Bush jr actually caught sudam hussain...OMFG !!! SWEET WE GOT THAT ASSHOLE. he was like, killing his own people, not giving money to their, what you would call, a government. its only a matter of time until we find osama bin fuck hole and end this thing. iraq now has a constitution, has its own government, we helped them all from certian death from there communist and dictator-like sudam. were on the right freaking track, the democrats need to STFU and accept it, the sooner we all come togther and solve this thing the sooner we all get what we want. bush isnt trying to go to war with every country, were trying to help innocent people by attacking terrorism. have your forgotten 2 fucking planes flew into the world trade center, im glad people, im sorry, imj glad pussys like you arent president. someone has to kick ass or else the world will get over run from bad people. bush jsut got stuck in a rough situation. forgive me i dont remember who was president when WWI was, but he did the freaking right thing by taking out hitlar. same thing here, we have to kick their ass or else they would have gotten WMD's. thank god we diddnt find any, we got there before they could. the world, especially iraq is a better place now thanks to bush. SO FUCK OFF LIBERAL FUCKHEAD. SOO...SHUTTT..THE FUCCKKKK...UPPP!!!!!! IM SICK AND TIRED OF PEOPLE RANTING AT THEIR OWN PRESIDENT, SURE I JUST RANTED AT CLINTON, BUT I HAD A JUST CAUSE.

I though it was Bush Sr. who sent in troops at the end of his term to provide humanitarian aid. [quote]2. His scandal with Lewinsky. No one is perfect.

3.

He was impeached by the House of Representatives

4.

Could have saved thousands of lives by taking Osama Bin Laden when offered. So easy to say in hindsight. Every single president there has been could have done something that might have saved lives.

5.

He failed to do anything about Saddam Hussein. Why did anything need to be done? He did not present a direct threat to the US. What was he going to do, roll his tanks across the Atlantic seafloor?

6.

Even though you all say he helped take peace to the Middle East, as far as I know they've been fighting for half a dozen decades (Israel and Palestine; the time in more recent terms, they've been enemies for much longer). I have a feeling this is going to be just like Iraq then, except internal fighting in this case. Peace isn't easy to achieve.

Why? Because if we bring up Iraq then it is shown that you have no point? I wish the families of all 1,800+ American soldiers who are dead could have 5 minutes alone with Bush in a room. We had no business in Iraq. Which is worse, 24 dead or 1800?

But in that time there was the agreement made at Camp David, where a cease fire was put in place. Then, just as Clinton was leaving office, Ariel Sharon sparked riots when he entered a Muslim holy site. In the 5 years that Bush has had, he has done nothing to try and bring peace to the region. Instead he's brought more havoc by invading Iraq and made an already fragile region into a hell hole.

amoreelitesoldier3. He was impeached by the House of Representatives[/quote] Which had republican majority. He wasnt impeached by the senate, he was acquitted of all charges thus he was not kicked out of office [quote=amoreelitesoldier]4. Could have saved thousands of lives by taking Osama Bin Laden when offered..

amoreelitesoldier1. Somalia, I wish the families of the Rangers, Pararescuers, and Delta Force could have 5 minutes alone with Clinton in a room. We had no business in Somalia. He has the blood of our soldiers on his hands for a totally worthless purpose. Don't start a flame war about Iraq for the #th time.[/QUOTE]Somalia was a UN peacekeeping mission, as a permanent member of the security council, it was our duty to be there. What he did screw up on was he denied requests for additional equipment (IIRC, AC-130s and M4 Bradleys) so when the shit hit the fan, the only tools for rescue where a handful of blackhawks and littlebirds, and some HMMWVs; not the ideal equipment to run through streets filled with hundreds of people with AK-47s and RPGs nor provide adequate aerial suppressing fire. He committed the fatal error of not letting the military decide what they need to do and have to get it done, a lesson that should have been learned in Vietnam[/COLOR] [COLOR=black]
[/COLOR] [COLOR=black]2. His scandal with Lewinsky.[/COLOR] [COLOR=black]3. He was impeached by the House of Representatives[/COLOR] [COLOR=black]
The way I feel about the whole scandal is that it was blown out of proportion; yes he lied under oath and committed perjury, but it was no ones business to investigate him for cheating in the first place. I think he got what he deserved once he committed perjury, an impeachment with no conviction and being branded as a liar, but he didn't deserve to be removed from office.[/B][/COLOR][COLOR=black][/COLOR] [COLOR=black] [/COLOR] [COLOR=black][QUOTE=Master of Reality]Why?

Seeming as you bring up the issue of Iraq, while worshipping Clinton consider Kosovo:[/COLOR] [COLOR=black]Clinton, and NATO, acted without the approval of the UN to go in and stop a genocide. IMO, this was probably heavily influenced by the events in Rwanda, and the failure of the UN to prevent the genocide that occured there. The only problem, after the fighting was over and done with the body count reached in the mid hundreds (600 deaths were proven to have been attributed to Milosevic, and are what he is charged for). The total body count was around 2,500, however many of those could not be determined if they were massacred or simply killed in combat, hence the figure of 600 is used. More civilians have been confirmed killed by the aerial bombardment conducted by NATO that have been found; something which can not be claimed to have occurred in Iraq. That may be a lot of people, but it was not the huge genocide that was used to justify the war, nor does there appear to be any indication that the deaths were a result of a policy of ethnic cleansing not just simple blind war crimes or political executions. Don't get me wrong, Milosevic was a bastard and deserves to rot in jail for those deaths, but if people can complain about Iraq being unjustified because the reason of stashes of WMDs was false, and flame Bush because of this, they should not hold the double standard by worshiping Clinton who did the exact same thing.[/COLOR]
