  •  Clinton was way too friendly with wall street (0+ / 0-)

    When I think of the clinton presidency I think of him as wall street's president.

    He was Mr Free Trader and Mr Wall Street.

    His policies were very friendly to Wall Street.

    He didn't care that these huge corporations were merging and acting as monopolies.

    He also didn't address real problems.

    He spent far too little time on fixing our energy problem and far too much time selling us out on free trade deals.

    Remember Clinton also was for the chinese getting involved with the ports on the west coast.

    The defecit has never gone down.

    Even during Clinton the defecit rose from 5.2 billion to 6.4 billion.  

    He left with the dot com bubble popping sending the stock market crashing and negative gdp.

    I live in northeastern ohio and manufacturing jobs were already disappearing rapidly at the end of clinton's term.

    We need someone that will tell the corporations no more with the free trade rip offs and correct nafta and bush's terrible deals.

    Praising Clinton on the economy makes no sense because his policies were for the corporations and against the american worker.

      i know we can all only speak for ourselves, so i have to say that during the clinton admin, where i lived, there was a scarcity not of jobs, but of employees.  it was back in the day where companies fought over talent.

      when, if you worked hard, and wanted to, companies didn't care if you worked overtime.  and paid you really well for it.

      you didn't even a consider a job if there was no "signing bonus" or they weren't offering a relocation package (if you had to move.)

      this was not just for executives either.

      this was for entry level positions.
