President Clinton's Good Acts

Sat Nov 04, 2000 10:42 am

What good things did President Clinton do? I heard he brought us out of the cold war, and avoided war on many areas.

Thanks,

He's gone to great lengths to bring peace to the middle east. He has done great things for the economy. He is extremely intelligent, and was a road scholar.

extremely intelligent? and he doesnt know what the definition of 'is' is?   He has spent too much money on foreign conflicts, something Bush plans to tone down, thank goodness! Its hard to think of good things he has done while he was in office, I will get back to you if I think of any

"Don't ask, don't tell" was probably the best thing that he ever helped get started.
You "heard" he helped us get out of the cold war? When we came out of the cold war, Mr. Clinton was the governor of the State of Arkansas.
And he avoided war? Hell, he bombed Iraq, Serbia, some of Bin Lauden's supposed compounds... definately not trying to avoid war.
I do have to admit he is a powerful speaker and does a good job on many things, but I wouldn't put being POTUS on that list...
But the president does deserve some respect whether he's republican or democrat, moral or immoral. He is the commander-in-chief and National Command Authority... a pretty big job not anyone could handle. I can't believe I'm talking about Clinton like this...hmmm...

Clinton accomplished more as far as foreign policy is concerned than Bush and Regan combined. The economy was in a recession during the Bush/Regan years. After 8 years if Clinton, the economy is booming.

Clinton bombed Iraq?! Sure he did, but nowhere near as much as Regan and Bush. Clinton bombed Serbia to stop massive genocide that many compare to the holocaust.

Reagan bombed Grenada, a county the size of Jacksonville, Florida to boost his ego and look tough!

Clinton has done some great things. The tax credit for college tuition helped me a lot. With those savings, I bough this computer that I am using right now to talk about airplanes and politics!  
Clinton had addressed racial profiling and is requiring federal agents in national parks to keep track of those pulled over.
Clinton put the breaks on the contract on America manifesto proposed by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
Clinton has impossed more tariffs on un-necessary imports from Japan.
Clinton made job creation a top priority of his Administration.
Clinton appointted Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Steven Bryer to the Supreme Court.
I personnally have benefited from Bill Clinton so I am a bit biased.

Yes, they did, but the difference is that they bombed Iraq during a war. Clinton bombed Iraq during peace time on the same day the Lewinsky thing came out...

DeltaRNOmd-80:Need I remind you that war is far more costly than keeping peace, both monetarily and in humanity in general. Handling minor threats to middle eastern peace is a small price to pay for sending in the UN and many American lives. Also, Clinton has virtually eliminated the deficit. Under Bush's regime, a 1.3 trillion tax cut is proposed, which will put us back where we were in the early nineties.
Also, Clinton may not know what the definition of "is" is, but Bush doesn't even know who the leader of Germany is. Even I know that...

Regan bombed a country the size of Jacksonville because he feared that they were turning communist.

Clinton did not end the cold war. That happened when the Berlin wall fell and then the rest of the old soviet union.

Clinotn may be a Rhodes (not road) Scholar, but that's nothing to brag about any more.

The great things he did? Whitewater and Monica. Yeah, some legacy.

Sorry about the road/Rhodes mixup. You are right, Clinton did not end the Cold War. The fall of the USSR ended the Cold War, but Clinton has had to deal with the aftermath of the Cold War.

The best thing Clinton did was sending his negotiation team to Minneapolis to stop the NWA pilot's strike.

His negotiations and efforts for peace in the Middle East are also admirable.

Folks, the economy started getting better in April of 1992. Every single person and their dog knows that. The reason we have a good economy is not because of anything Clinton did, it's because of the people of the united states.

I am not a Clinton fan. But he has not just been pimping and over-using his super fly. He actually has done good things.

The president is a good negotiator, especially with foreign leaders. Further, he is amazing at raising funds for certain projects. His projects generally are bad for America in the long run, but this is not true of all of them. What I am trying to say is that the man is probably a poor president for the far future of the world, but his quick fixes appease enough people that they haven't tried too hard to kill him yet.

After the White House clean up- the country will continue with the good, bad, ugly and beautiful. We'll survive.

Clinton didn't do great things for the econmy you say? I'll have you know that he has helped us eliminate a lot of the national debt, and Gore plans to eliminate it completely. Bush and Regan caused the debt to increase, and W's proposed tax cut would be a step backward in eliminating the debt.

Let us admit that neither Reagan nor Clinton regenerated or degenerated the economy. As far as the national debt, Reagan under taxed us to save us. Yes he left a great hole of debt, and probably it was too big. But after Carter, a good man but a bad president, many in both parties thought that the presidency just couldn't work any more. The country might have been just sold to the highest bidder.

I lived in California when Reagan was the governor there. He was part of a government that over taxed us. And when he left to pursue other interests the next governor, Brown, helped the people spend the huge surplus.

But after Carter Reagan saw a need to do something daring. It is debatible if it helped. But is is debatible if it didn't. We're still here.

And the question arises, "Is Bush's tax plan smart?" You will answer this with the eyes of a partly informed Democrat, and I will answer it (if I choose to) with the eyes of a partly informed Republican.

Stronger words now would only be noise.
