Woot! Clinton Bashing
posted by Joel at 8:14 PM
I am convinced that unless the Democrats sieze power and maintain a dictatorship for several hundred years, history will record Clinton as the worst president of the 20th century. Not because I disagree with his policies, but because his administration of the country and his execution were so inept and mis-guided.
In 2000, his policies and the execution of those policies regarding North Korea could arguably be called successful. Not by someone from my perspective, but by a certain portion of people out there into touchy feelie appeasement and ineffective diplomacy... who consider anything better than commiting troops, including bribes and compromise of fundamental principles. In 2003 no one can credibly argue that Clinton's N. Korea policies were successful in any sense of the word, except as a pass the buck, put it off til later strategy.
Likewise, his other actions while administering our country as the top executive will slowly come to light as the sands of time drain down thru the hourglass and reveal the long term results .
I will leave you with a question I asked in comment to this thread: Reagan left office and the Berlin wall fell down, Clinton left office and the WTC fell down...which is the better legacy?
