No Contest: The People Say Clinton Was Far Better Than Bush

This poll will make the Rightwingers scream, wail, cry, gnash their teeth, rend their garments, roll on the ground in dog droppings, and pray for an early death. Heh heh heh:
Respondents favored Clinton by greater than 2-to-1 margins when asked who did a better job at handling the economy (63 percent Clinton, 26 percent Bush) and solving the problems of ordinary Americans (62 percent Clinton, 25 percent Bush).

On foreign affairs, the margin was 56 percent to 32 percent in Clinton's favor; on taxes, it was 51 percent to 35 percent for Clinton; and on handling natural disasters, it was 51 percent to 30 percent, also favoring Clinton.

Moreover, 59 percent said Bush has done more to divide the country, while only 27 percent said Clinton had.

When asked which man was more honest as president, poll respondents were more evenly divided, with the numbers -- 46 percent Clinton to 41 percent Bush -- falling within the poll's margin of error. The same was true for a question on handling national security: 46 percent said Clinton performed better; 42 percent picked Bush.
Am I gloating? You better F ' ing believe it!

That about says it all for the liberals in this country. An impeached, disgraced president, who bangs coctail waitresses two at a time is more popular than a President who defends his country against terrorism! Who would have "thunk it"!? So much for our educational system.

The "impeached, disgraced president" was the victim of a right-wing witchhunt that never had the support of more than about 30% of the people. If I had to choose between a president who bangs cocktail waitresses and one who ignores repeated warnings that his country was going to be attacked (and then lets the perpetrator of those attacks run free for almost five years now), gimme the waitress banger every time!

BTW, do you think lying to the country about the reasons for plunging it into a bloody and counterproductive war merits impeachment? Or that remedy saved only for presidents who lie about extramarital affairs?
