Thought of the day

The greatest Presidents of the 20th century:

3. Clinton: He oversaw the greatest economic boom. Ever.

2. Dwight Eisenhower: He created an incredible infrastructure that has been an integral fact in American economic dominance. It is only now that any country (China) is outdoing what the U.S. did in the 1950’s – and they’re copying our model.

1. FDR: For starters, how about just about everything he did?

  1. You know nothing constructive will come out of an FDR discussion, but I’m completely with you on Bill Clinton.

    Clinton did a great job as president. I like his overall economic policies, including NAFTA, welfare reform and deficit reduction.

    And yes, I’m fully aware he raised the top tax bracket by several percentage points. He was still a great president.

  2. Yeah, I’d put Clinton up there – mostly for the reasons Michael mentioned, but also because he brought the Democrats out of their pacifism-at-all-times-and-all-places cocoon.
