    He's killing people for no reason?

    Last time I checked we hadn't invaded Iraq yet.

    Personally I think we need to take him out before that little mushroom cloud pops up. Then all we'll hear is "Why didn't America do something sooner!"

    You mean way back when Reagan sold weapons to him? [face_plain]

    Wow, I didn't think Clinton would have as many votes as he did.

    I voted for G.W. Bush. He's taking care of business. That may not matter to a lot of you, but I'm in the US Air Force and to finally have a president that does something when the enemy attacks us is a great feeling.

    In '96 when 19 airmen lost their lives in Khobar Towers, Saudi Arabia, Billy "The Kid" Clinton wanted to "wait and see" what was going to happen. Good plan, Willy.

    A couple of years later when dozens of people lost their lives in Kenya and Tanzania, Slick Willy said, "Let's wait and see how this plays out." Good thinking, slick, let's do that.

    A couple of years after that when dozens of sailors lost their lives aboard the U.S.S Cole, berthed in Yemen, The Man, the Myth, the Legend, President William Jefferson Clinton said...you guessed it, "Let's wait and see how this plays out." Gimme a frickin break. Zip up your pants and launch some rockets.

    On September 11, 2001 when America fell victim to the deadliest, most cowardly attack on its soil since Pearl Harbor, G.W. Bush said, "Let's go get the Mo Fo's." (That's paraphrased. LOL)

    He wiped out an entire country and is still going strong. Go get 'em, G.W., I'm with you.

    Are you implying that Dubya or Ronny was the greatest?

    [face_laugh]

    JFK was the greatest.

    Reagan is the best ever.

    Thanks Billy Clinton for our economy. I love Big Buisiness sticking it to the workers because of the rules you never enforced. Clinton let the Unions run over this country for 8 years. The economic downturn started DURING Clinton's last year.

    YES, we provided Saddam with the weapons he needed. At the time he was fighting Iran, and we wanted them to go down. We didn't know he would turn into the bastard he is now.

    Same with Osama, except he was fighting Russia.

    Please read about the Electoral process BEFORE you criticise it. Especially if you are from CANADA. It does make sense.
    How is your health care system up there??

    Darth GUY!!! well now. Taxes are bad because they take more money from me, and give it to the Government. That means that I can't go spend it in a store. Since I can't spend my money, less people are employed, and thus I CAN'T help drive the economy. Do they teach that in your UBER liberal high school where all the history books teach you that JFK did nothing wrong??

    Every president did something wrong, they're only human. BTW, my school is very conservative, but I like to think for myself. Don't judge someone based on their age and/or where they come from.

    Seems lots of people wish FDR were listed... you can actually say that things he implemented are in use today and therefore affects modern day...

    JediMasterEllic_Kier: You should only count the actual take home salary as your salary, employers base your "salary" on what is automatically taken out for taxes..... in reality. IMHO. Wish my taxes weren't used for buying uber-expensive toys for Congress and ruining out planet.

    As for ME its Billy boy. The dude was eloquent, could hold his own with foreign diplomats, introduced popular european economic policies... The whole Monica thing is immaterial to the good things he did as President.

    The Bushes are a bunch of clowns, they rely on other people's brains 100% of the time and couldn't impress a foreign leader if they wanted to.... try KNOWING people's names and their respective countries.

    GOP is and will continue to ruin this country.

    DUBYA = Palpatine

    Duping the country and forcing his way into the white house.

    Why do you need to know anyone's name or where they're from when we rule the world anyways? As the great Denis Leary once "We got the bombs...OKAY!"

    Lyndon Johnson got us in Vietnam.

    Wow, I'm Australian and I know that's not true. JFK committed US forces to Vietnam because he wanted to prove that the US would stand by it's allies and it's belief in democracy and freedom.


    Yea, but JFK was going to pull the troops out of Vietnam. But since he was assissnated he couldn't do that.

    I'd say Clinton because he did a lot of good things for the country. He also really helped out African-Americans. As a person he may not be that great but few presidents have. Bush only one because Jeb cheated for him in Florida.

    George W. Bush is a moron. He wants to go to war no matter what, does not care about the environment, and has no clue what he is doing.


    I wouldn't have even voted for FDR if he was on here because of the Japanese Internment camps which is a disgrace to American History and I have virtually no respect for him because of that.


    For anyone who says Clinton is the worst president is way off. He did good things as president something a lot of others didn't do. Pierce and Buchanan didn't even do anything. Andrew Johnson had Congress turn against him and run the country, John Adams was terrible with the Alien & Sedition Acts. Millard Fillmore and John Tyler pretty much sucked and did nothing. Although they only became president because of the death of Zachary Taylor and William H. Harrison. To say Clinton is worse than any of the above is ridiculous.

    All of the presidents have lied and done immoral things before. Believe me Clinton was not the first.
