39. America was strong and proud because of Clinton
The repugs had to throw the mud until it stuck or they knew they would be forever irrelevent. They love the mud, they like to play dirty. This is a post from last week. I deleted the pic of *.
President Clinton in prayer with Katrina survivors
I'm not going to say anything here that you don't already know and believe or, at least, have heard before. I feel compelled at this time to put into words what has been in my heart for such a very long time.
There is so much going on in the world right now, as reflected here, in our world, the DU community. Something new every minute, every day. We laugh, we cry, we get angry, we console each other. We feed each other as we gain knowledge from what each of us shares.
Look at these two pictures and tell me you honestly do not understand why President Clinton was impeached. Why the years of endless, evil, relentless assault.
It takes a village to make a happy and prosperous country. It takes a village idiot to make a country divided with just a few reaping any of it's benefits, or giving anything back. I miss President Clinton. My heart aches for what Gore or Kerry could and would have done to continue his legacy of inclusion of all those who would contribute and work hard because they could. And a helping hand to those that could not.
The neocon agenda is self-serving. It is selfish. It is divisive. It is merciless. And, it is in deficit. It is a beast that is consuming our greatness.
We Democrats, we progressives, are his legacy, too. We, together, can get our country back. The Nazi's '1000-year' reign lasted only twelve years because, finally, the sword of freedom was drawn and raised and the beast was no more.
15. Daddy Bush was to be the beginning of the PNAC agenda and Bill
royally screwed that up. They warned Bill Clinton PRIOR to his announcement that he would run for prez, that if he ran, his life would be miserable. Then he WON...OMG. They just couldn't deal with the fact that their agenda would be postponed for AT LEAST 4 years and THEN he made that 8 years. Tsk, tsk, tsk. They just couldn't handle that postponement of their agenda. They went ballistic. :bounce:
18. Yeah, the most conservative, except for a couple
Reagan, Bush I and II, Ford, Nixon, JFK, Truman, Eisenhower. He's about tied with Carter during his presidency years. LBJ was more liberal on social issues, more conservative on foreign policy.
It's simple to understand why conservatives hate Clinton. He proves everything they say and do false. He increased taxes on the wealthy, reversed Reaganomics, used diplomacy rather than force, used force only as a last resort to enforce diplomacy, increased government spending on job training, education, and law enforcement, prevented Gingrich from rolling back all social spending to pre-FDR levels, and spoke eloquently. And everything went perfectly. Higher wages, falling poverty, increased jobs, a strong economy, lower crime rates, smaller government and a safer world. All the results the Republicans promised by doing exactly the opposite of what Republicans said should be done.
Of course they hate him. he proves they are wrong.
22. They hate Bill Clinton because he's not one of them
The Clinton years proved what liars most Republican business types really are. They wailed about Dems and their spending for decades, insisted on a balanced budget while Clinton was president, and experienced the best they ever had under Clinton.
Doesn't matter. If Jesus had come back and personally recommended Clinton, the right would have crucified him AGAIN.
I do not think that Perot contributed considerably to Clinton's victory. The assumption that people who voted for him would have voted for Bush I instead is making the rather rash assumption that they would have voted at all.
Be honest. It was GHWB's election to loose, and he did that with distinction. Bumbling on domestic issues and renigging on his "no new taxes" could not stand up to Clinton's charisma and oration.
I really miss having a president that could SPEAK.
37. Cause he was doing some thinking about the future & the third way
and all. GOP was relying on Liberals being stuck in stone for generations so all their new con & neocon ideas would be easily followed.
Nefarious will do that. They'll purposely silence any voice that competes with their "greatness".
I mean that generation of conservatives had everything go their way under Reagan and it seemed to them.. it was a crime for things to not be "just so" in their world. I mean they send their kids to private schools and live in walled cities. So why should they pay taxes for thing like public schools?:sarcasm:
