    Many towns were savaged under the Clinton Administration.  Not pointing fingers, just observing a fact.  I saw my hometown area, a rural/industrial area, slide rapidly backwards during the big economic boom of the 90's.  I thought I was going insane until I saw a cover story on it in TIME magazine.  

    No wonder they voted for Bush in 2000.  There was a lot of reflection on the fact that life had not improved for them under Clinton.

    And, well, when the money ran out, religion caught on there like wildfire...  

    Not implying that Admin was as bad as this one, that would be a rather Herculean task.  Just saying reality isn't always as black and white as we'd wish it were.

    •  Thirty years of decline (none)
      Only the mild improvement during the high-tech go-go years of the 1990's broke thirty years of decline - Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush the Father, Clinton.  And only Carter and Clinton tried to do a little something about it.

        is and was a hardcore free trader. He lead the charge to sell out american workers. Remember the "retraining assistance" they promised to all the workers 'outsourced'? Remember the "high tech high paying jobs" that were going to be created? Where are those..

        Theyve released the studies they commisioned when they sold us out. The studies debunk the lies and disengenuous predictions. Shock of shocks.. sending americas' core industries to third world nations resulted in.. fewer high paying jobs, a higher poverty rate, and a smaller middle class. And clinton was head cheerleader.

        Remember: there's no sense in talking to them. Talk to your base first, the middle second, and the amoral and lying right never.
